Director Biography - Boris Kazakov

I was born in Moscow on March 30, 1988. My parents are engineers, my aunt is a kindergarten teacher, my grandmother is a teacher of Russian language and literature. He studied at the general education school "1136" in Moscow. After graduating from high school, I planned to enroll in VGIK, because I loved movies from an early age. I shot my first cartoon in the seventh grade on an amateur video camera. It was an adaptation of the novel "12 Chairs"by Ilf and Petrov. Instead, on the advice of my father, I entered the Moscow University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia. After graduating from the university, I was assigned to the district investigation department as an investigator. I had to work for months without days off, from six in the morning until eleven o'clock in the evening. After the investigation, I worked as a forensic expert for two more years and finally decided to leave the service in 2016. I passed the exam and received the status of a lawyer. In 2014-2016, when I left the investigation, and there was much more free time, I started shooting short video mixes and publishing them on the Internet. I made pictures for comics myself, animated them in the editor, edited them, superimposed sounds and music. I also had to voice the characters myself, but with the help of technology, I made different voices for myself, so the dialogues were not one-voice. Next, I decided to write a script on my own. By that time, I already had such an abundant warehouse of various stories from my practice in my head that it would be enough for a full-fledged series. Within two years, I wrote three scripts for full-length feature films, published one of them on the Internet, where I received a lot of positive reviews. Now I continue to work as a lawyer and, as far as possible, I continue to write. In 2019, this year I finally decided to enroll in directing courses at the VGIK named after S. A. Gerasimov. To date, I have made several short films, one of which is my course work "Crime and Punishment".
