Ivan and Max


Hi. Nice to Meet You.

My name’s Ivan. I’m a freelance filmmaker, writer, motion designer, and video producer based out of Washington, DC.

Interested in making an awesome video? I’m your guy. I will work with you to collaborate and craft beautiful moving images—from animation to live action. Past clients include Vox, the Verge, Reddit, Discovery, the Washington Post, Ogilvy & Mather, GE, and lots of non profits. My skills are diverse. My enthusiasm is infectious. I aim to make videos that both entertain and inspire.

More about me:

• I’ve been working full time in video production since 2007.
• I write, edit, and direct films. They’ve screened at a bunch of festivals and stuff.
• I have a podcast. We talk about classic movies. You should subscribe.
• I’m an editor and writer for Short of the Week, the leading curator for short form narrative content on the internet.
• My feature screenplays have placed at Austin Film Fest (semi-finalist), Script Pipeline (Finalist), Tracking-B (winner), and the Nicholl fellowship. Yet, still, nobody wants to pay me to make them. It’s a cruel world.
• I’m standing behind you right now (kidding… But, you know, just checking to see if you actually made it this far).
