Director Biography - Vlad Kovalov

My name is Vlad Kovalyev. I was born in Rostov on Don, which on the south of Russia.
I’ve been engaging in video making, since I was a child. I also used to shoot small animated films with puppets made of plasticina.
When I was 17 I moved to the Saint-Petersburg and went to the State University of Film and Television to become the director of documentary. I‘m on the fifth year of study for now.
During the study I made several films that were distinguished and awarded by different festivals in Russia.
These films are:
“Nose of Kovalyev” («Нос Ковалёва») - film about the monument to the character of Nikolay’s Gogol’s Book;
“Jazz is me” («Джаз – это я») – film that tells the story of Saint-Petersburg’s Jazz’s origins;
“Rock-n-rolla” (Рок-н-ролльщик”)– film, which I present on this festival.
