Nikita Staritsky

Hello! My name is Nikita Staritsky.

I have great skills in every step of video production — from idea to implementation. Currently I’m making creative ads constantly searching for new approaches to work and ideas. I have experience in managing a creative team of up to 7 people. I know where and how to look for the necessary information and resources to implement an idea.

My current goals:

  • Working with professionals
  • Implementation of projects to be proud of
  • Developing professional skills and abilities in the team
