Hi there! I'm Dima Otvertchenko and I grew up as an 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 before earning my MFA in Film Production at the USC School of Cinematic Arts.
I currently work freelance, coming off 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, the New Jersey Devils, & the Vegas Golden Knights.
I'm fluent in English, Russian, and Simpsons.
