Born in St. Petersburg Russia, Yaroslav Altunin moved to Seattle at a young age where he began his career in film. His first project was 'Son of Terror' where he introduced himself to the independent film community as a 2nd Assistant Director. Although his short film directorial debut in Seattle was initially unsuccessful, subsequent projects in Arizona were well received. Yaroslav's films won several awards in local film festivals, such as The A3F Film Festival. In late 2011, Altunin moved to Los Angeles where he produced the short 'Laughter on The Sly' and began developing an independent production company that would specialize in narrative series for online distribution.
