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.
