Friday morning started quite early on National Broadcast LRT show “Labas Rytas” with Ignas Krupavičius. I feel huge support from all media from Lithuania these days ♥
Today I was visiting 15min. live streaming studio and talked about films, reaching the goal and many other things. Thanks to Karolis Banevičius and 15min. for spreading the word! The streaming went so quickly and I haven’t had a time to thank for all my supporters which are so many.
Those, who suggest getting the loan, don’t know that in Lithuania I could have one, only if I study here. In America, when you are not USA citizen it is very complex, bet yes I am trying to get my visa and will try to get more information on that.
The other day I visited infoTV show, where for the first time in my life, I was on the live broadcast. I was quite nervous, because I am used to be on the other side of the camera. Furthermore, my dream got attention on National Television show “Laba Diena”. Lets’ watch.
PS. I have raised over $7000, about 6% of all the money I need! Thank you so much for sharing and caring!
Now is the time to make my dream come true. Any support, financial or sharing this post is very important for me. I want to prove to the world that there is a way to conquer Hollywood and it goes through my hometown Vilkaviskis. Your support today is more important than ever!
I started dreaming about AFI back in 2013 travelling by train in Siberia, when another DOP (Alex) have mentioned it. In 2014 I applied for the first time. However, my documents were never reviewed, because of not sufficient English level and I was always rejected. I have tried different private English teachers, passed once TOEFL exam and 4 times IELTS exam till I got what I need. in 2015 I was passing IELTS two times and got 6.5 point twice, instead of 7.0 which I needed to get through. Then I got tired of trying and did a break which continued for two years and a half keeping me busy with other things. Thanks God 2017 was a year of waking up (especially a project in Tian Shan mountains), and in December I hired a private teacher, buried myself completely into the books and passed IELTS for the 7.0, which allowed me to be reviewed. After submitting the documents I flied to LA for the interview and here I am!
Soon I will be figuring out a financial plan and believe me I will need to use your help! I am here till August so please use me for some work!
Thanks to everybody who supported me all these years and kept believing in my big dreams!
After receiving the offer to film the documentary in Tian Shan mountains in Kyrgyzstan I was in doubt. I only had skiing experience, but never tried climbing. The summit of 4350m seemed a bit scary. The more I thought about it, the more I felt the need to accept this challenge. The preparation for the shoot was intense and I had to learn using mountaineering equipment and prepare my body. I was climbing trees, jogging and running up the stairs with heavy backpack. Preparation included learning about solar panels, weighing film equipment, thinking how to transfer material, trying contact lenses and etc. It was not easy, but worth every effort. It was a great adventure and a source of inspiration. Here are some pics from behind the scenes. A huge thanks for the team.
