Hello! I am Anastasiya Sergienya.
I am professional photographer for a 10 years.
I am also a Television and Film Freelancer since 2017. I love that!
Right now I am focusing on Assistant Director position - this is my bread.
But directing is my truly passion.
I love smiling and love world! I love traveling. I've been in so many places!
In 2012 I moved to London to learn English in Wimbledon Language Academy. And in 2013 I successfully passed my exams at Westminster Academy where I studied Business Management.
I completed online courses “Explore Filmmaking: From Script to Screen” at National Film and Television School in London and made one more step to my dream, a move to NYC in 2016.
In NY I attended and completed Summer Filmmaking courses at TISCH, NYU and start working in the film industry.
During this time I created Belarusian Movie nights Club - Kinovino, where I shows belarusian movies or international movies with belarusian translation:
I love my country - Belarus. I was born in Minsk.
On 2020 I shot my first short movie:
I am continue studying.
In 2020 I start learning and working as a Covid Compliance Officer, Coordinator, Supervisor.
In 2022 I received IDCProfessional Fellowship for Intimacy Coordinator Course.
I love to learn, read, excising, doing yoga, watching movies.
I think that perfection has no limits.
