"Which form of proverb do you prefer Better late than never, or Better never than late?"
Anastasia is an independent and aspiring filmmaker that was awarded with the Master of Fine Arts in Filmmaking at the New York Film Academy. Her first Bachelor's Degree was earned at the historical university The Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography. She has two degrees in Acting for film and has substantial experience in film and video production, including every phase of development.
She is trained and adept in numerous related technical areas, including expertise with cameras, lighting, editing equipment, sound and color correction, audio/visual and on-set devices, and hardware for both in-studio and remote location projects.
Her experience with production administration, finance, talent management, and business practices, including contracts and permits, has given her the opportunity to manage and direct fellow postgraduate students. She has since gone on to launch her own production company, Anakofilm Corp.
Anastasia has debuted several of her short films, including "The Choice," "The Mighty Arm," and "Late Again Ana," which she wrote, produced, and directed.
"Late Again Ana" has won several awards, including "Best Student Film of the Year" (Los Angeles Film Festival), "Best Narrative Short" (Festigious Film Festival), and "Best Woman Filmmaker" at the Vegas Movie Awards.
Today Anastasia is based in Miami Beach and is a co-owner of the production company
Sunny Isles Films, which specializes in commercial, wedding, and music videos.
She believes that film is the most exciting form of art and that it's always only about telling a story, even when you are filming about a bottle of water! Every bottle needs to have a chance to tell its story, and she is the one who will help deliver it to the audience.
