What do you believe has most shaped you as an artist?
I am a human being. This is a most important thing.
My turn is to explore the little parts of our World, and show it to the other people in my way.
If you can pay your attention to the really important things, by this, you can understand better and better the
wonderful process: how the life goes.
If you are ready and able to do this, doesn’t really matter, you are an artist or not.
What according to you is the difference between ordinary festivals and online festivals?
There are many obvious differences, which are well-known by everybody.
Here in DotFest there was an extra difference – and I liked it very much: the online Jury chat.
Please share with us your impressions about DotFest Festival Programme.
I watched some great shorts - including one of my favourite animations for years (a Russian one).
On the other hand – sorry to say – I expressly hate some of other ones.
But in sum, it was a great fun!
What were your expectations for participating in the DotFest?
My expectations? A wide range audience from different cultures with many different opinions, and some
feedback. That’s why I like that kind of online festivals like DotFest.
Your closing message to DotFest audience.
Go to Rhodes – once in your life at least – because this place is the Paradise on Earth indeed.
And don’t be shy to make some mobile shot there ;)
A big thank you for your votes, my great audience!
