About Me

My name is Ekaterina and I am originally from the city of Moscow, Russia.

I moved to the Netherlands in 2019 to start my studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. Currently I am undergoing a program in audiovisual arts(VAV – moving image) with a focus on animation.
Before coming here I used to do graphic design related freelance works. I studied with a magnificent graphic designer who taught me valuable skills – both creative and technical.
I spent a long time working and perfecting my portfolio, and after being admitted to the academy I left Russia to pursue the dream of my life.
This is exactly how I want our lessons to feel. Free, but also serious. We will have a lot of fun learning the programs and discovering what amazing possibilities they can give you.

There is so much to learn. I can promise that this journey will be not only fruitful, but also interesting and creative!

Adeline
Drawing / painting course and introduction to graphic design (photoshop, illustrator - vector drawing)
Dynamic and creative, I am very patient and I want to encourage you in a positive way and focus on the progress you are making and your strengths. After my bachelor in computer graphics, I did a master in communication and performing arts. I then moved to London for a few months where I started by giving French lessons via this platform. I did various internships in audiovisual centers as well as in a fablab (3D printing, laser cutting, vector design, etc.) I have drawn all my life, whether on a margin of a course sheet, a canvas, a wall or a graphic tablet. During my training in computer graphics, I developed better drawing techniques and I learned to use software such as Photoshop, Illustrator (vector drawing), After Effect (motion design), Premiere Pro (video editing). If you are really starting out on computers and with more basic programs, I am also at your disposal. I think it's easier to learn when we talk about things that interest us. This is why I will ask you to share your hobbies and interests so that I can learn about them in order to prepare a lesson and make it more attractive. Especially since the computer / artistic field allows us great freedom of subject. We can try multiple techniques whether in drawing, painting or computer graphics.

Video Editing Training Course or audacity and equivalent programs - Just for fun or become a professional!
Editing video can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it. But however complex you want the final product to be, you will find the process far more enjoyable if you take a few moments to prepare from the very beginning, preferably before you even start to record any footage. Conclusion. Video editing is important because it is the key to blending images and sounds to make us feel emotionally connected and sometimes truly there in the film we're watching. It's a safe assumption to say that video editing is among the most important jobs in the film industry.
