Hi there! I'm Dima Otvertchenko and I grew up as a Russian immigrant in New York, writing stories, drawing comic books, composing music, and doing any other kind of world-building I could afford.

After studying film at Vassar College, I moved to Los Angeles and worked for companies such as Sony Pictures, HGTV, & G4tv while simultaneously freelancing in photography.

Today I'm a recent graduate of the USC School of Cinematic Arts with an MFA in Film Production. In between work, I'm currently on the festival circuit with two films: the disability-rights drama "Guest Room" (SXSW, Palm Springs) and my pop-punk musical thesis “O-Star” (Palm Springs, CineGear Expo).

I love cats, Korean BBQ, and the New Jersey Devils.
