Since a was young kid I have always wanted to shoot videos. During high school in Russia I started skateboarding with my friends and I began filming them doing tricks. After a few years I moved to Italy and kept skating and shooting Italian skaters. In 2012 my first full length documentary about Italian skateboarding came out featuring Nike Italian team. Since then I started directing. Being based in Milan, my fashion and artistic vision grew and I combined it with my ruff inner skater way of shooting in order to direct major brand commercials in the fashion, art and ADV world such as: Coca Cola, Sunglass Hut, Puma, New Era, Baracuta, Vogue, Arnette, Diadora, Sunnei etc.

There’s nothing harder, then to try to write about yourself. So where do I begin? From early age I was interested in cinema and how it allows you to imagine the world around you. I was fascinated by this powerful instrument that can express emotions on to the screen for people to understand.

There’s nothing more inspiring to me than life. Maybe that was the main reason I applied to All-Russian State Institute of Cinematography VGIK to study Documentary Filmmaking. During my student years my films were shown at various international film festivals around the globe.

For my works I find inspiration in life and art, that always walk hand in hand together. Always eager to try something new and unknown, put myself to challenge. My main interest in film is exploring life in new angles and visualise the emotions and feelings, because I believe that it’s the main purpose of art.

I would say that a directing career is a very natural manifestation of my keen interest in the human character. Perhaps, that is one of the reasons I have chosen comedy as my primary genre — people have learned to use humour as a coping mechanism through losses, personal and global tragedies. We take our deepest fears and turn them into inspiration, entertainment.
I have been lucky to be able to share my work not only with local Russian audience, but also with an international one — one of my films (’The road to’, 2012) has been awarded the Grand Prix at the Cinefondation competition during the Cannes Film Festival. My first feature film (‘Bite the Dust’, 2014) also premiered in Cannes.
The romantic comedies I direct are usually well accepted by the audience. I always do my best to make the stories I create and the characters in them, as relatable as possible. Which is why it is essential for me to take part in the script development process.

I was graduated from Saint-Petersburg State University of Culture & Arts in the department of Movie direction. 

Since 2013 I have been working in Moscow as a director of AD, music & art videos. Working with advertising agencies and brands such as Yandex, MTS, Mail, Metro, Samsung, L’Oreal and more.

In my opinion, in any audio-visual work, be it an advertisement, a music video, or a big movie, history is a key element. And most of all I like to tell these stories, referring to the emotions of the viewer. I can write something else about myself, but I think my work will tell a lot more…

An authentic, broadbrow director originally from Ufa. I am half Tatar, half Kabardian. The calm, measured, and melancholy Tatar Murad is ready to talk about anything until the morning hours, to share something personal, and to quickly forget insults. The Kabardian Murad is persistent, exacting, proud, and sometimes opinionated. Since childhood, I’ve looked at the world in my own way and I think that life is a long movie, where everything should be either perfect or go to blazes. Thanks to my education in documentary filmmaking, I make every story very honest and as close to life as possible. It is important to me to show the viewer a true, rough, and unadorned story. Soulfulness, sincerity and poignancy, and love for experiments are the key points because of which I am often invited to projects.

I was born by the end of hot may in 1979. In the town lost between pathless forests on the edge of a dying empire.

The year, when we should have been accepted into the pioneers, I remember first video salons just appeared and stunned residents of a small city. Between school and films, I chose the second. Since then I haven’t thought about anything else then filmmaking.

I started to film in my twenties. In 24 I was invited to the promo department at “Channel one” where the real projects kicked off. We wrote and shot videos for the whole channel content.

Afterwards, I worked on the videos for “Russia” and “STS» channels. It’s back then when Ilya Stuart, Hype Production executive, invited me in and opened the doors to the advertisement world.

At the present time, I am working under the wing of fast and proud liner Catalyzm.

During the years of work in advertising, I participated and won in various international and Russian festivals, such as Promax&BDA, Tefi, Mediabrand, MIAF Red Apple, Milano Sports Festival & etc.
