During my lessons I try to encourage the student to think together what is the main drive of the film, why the student wants to make this film. As well, I provide the short introduction to the film and video art history and later we take hands on approach on actual filmmaking (story board, filming and editing).
I am a photographer and filmmaker, holding BA diploma of arts and MA diploma in film from The Netherlands Film Academy. I have several years of active practice as a filmmaker and photographer. I've been giving artist talks since 2016 regarding my artistic research and methodology.
I gives lessons in English, Russian or Lithuanian.
I am an audio-visual artist and filmmaker currently based in Amsterdam. I hold a BA in Photography and Media Arts from Vilnius Academy of Arts (2012) and a MA in Film from the Netherlands Film Academy (2016).
My artistic practice spans film, video installations, and photography.
My films have been shown at international film festivals as well as art events, including Visions du Reel, Montreal International Documentary Festival, and VideoEX Experimental Film & Video Festival.
