Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to get into editing?

Alexey Nazarchuk : You work a lot, you have to tell the story… I mean I think about the footage, scenes, story line all time. Before, during and after working hours in the editing room. Some times even when I’m asleep.So it is a pretty hard work.

Alexey Nazarchuk : For me it is always interesting as every project is a self-education in a way.
