Director Biography - Dmitri Cherkasski

I've always loved movies! The stories they tell and the emotion they provoke. Ever since I first used my dad’s camcorder as a curious child, I was hooked and fascinated by the moving image. I've continued to explore my passion for film through working on many short film projects, ranging from zero budgets to self funded fantasy thrillers. I've also experienced life behind the scenes and worked on the production side of a couple of TV shows. My aim is to keep learning and improving my filmmaking skills and to make my next work better than my last!

Director Statement

Working with Tanya on this film has been a creative collaboration where we explored her vision, her musical talents and a way to use the craft of film to bring her story to life. She is an incredibly inspiring person and working on this project was exciting and fun. Tanya’s goal is to “inspire people to be creative” and I believe that she has reached, and in fact surpassed this goal and I hope this documentary portrays her passion and love of music.
