Eduard was born in Mariupol, Ukraine to Russian parents and immigrated to Seattle in 1995. Growing up, he discovered a penchant for shooting videos on his dad's old VHS camera. He made his first short film Return of the Chinook at age 11 (no relation to the Star Wars franchise) and waited until 18 to make his second. He moved to Los Angeles in 2015 to work full time in the industry, migrating between the AD department, visual effects, and camera operations. His favorite genre is Western; coincidentally, his favorite film is Once Upon a Time in the West. He goes by "Eddy" and spends a lot of his free time dabbling in film photography and disappearing on impromptu road trips into the desert.
