Sergey, tell us, this is the first family film in your directing career?

Feature – Yes. Once I was removed under the order short film for a children’s acting school. It was a children’s Comedy, I don’t know how much family. After this bitter experience, I promise that I will not never work with children… never say Never! (Laughs).

But I am very grateful that we had quite a long and large casting. Children we chose are just wonderful!

Why did you decide to work in this direction?

I was always attracted to Comedy, but the humor is walking on thin ice: you never know if it will be funny to the viewer, if he would understand the allusions and subtexts. But often the risk justifies the means, the more I wanted to add a little positivity and family values to bring to the discussion. It is not enough now.

To talk in comic form about the main thing, to make fun of problems, but still – talk about them, but spoken aloud it is amenable to meditation.

As searched for the main character? What lion are you surprised that he decided to give the role to him?

Surprised by his calmness and flexibility. At first I thought he was slow, but turns out he just accumulated energy!

Live was the casting of the two tasks. One of the scenes the guys were preparing home – made sonoprobe, which were samples that were more similar to how qualitatively behaved children, their parents and teachers. And the second scene they didn’t know text was a little, worked on the physics.

Here guys and showed who on what is capable. I realized almost immediately that it’s him. Yes, we decided, I thought, a focus group is attracted to, but it was more the fact that we once again convinced that this is like a lion.

Who was the hardest to find of the characters?

The main character, Maxim. Online casting I thought the trouble was gone. Sameproblem I saw the parents put the children up against the wall and forced them to teach the text and play. Severe sight, but necessary. Many dropped out. Pictures and videos all look different. But on mood I have exhaled, after 8 hours, in the evening, after the 4th coffee. Like I said, I knew immediately who the hero will be.

Tell us what the next film for you unique?

“Miy DDoS – Did Moroz” unique in its social overtones and irony that Eva (Eva Voerman – author) has invested in the dialogues and the characters. I always wrote scripts militants, where the comedic moments were dark and sarcastic. In this film it was hard to switch yourself, but this is the beauty of development work.

Where’s the shoot? It would be a movie in the Ukrainian language?

The shooting took place in Kiev and Kiev region. We have roads, gas stations – all the streets of Kiev. The House Of Maxim. There are a couple of places about which not yet tell, but will show later.

Only the Ukrainian language!

We will remind, earlier Znayu wrote about how the Hollywood star Eric Roberts was in the new Ukrainian Comedy “Date night in Vegas” where he played Olya Polyakova and Vladimir Ostapchuk.

It was also reported that the Ukrainian pet Netflix “Sniffer” in the new series, finally reveals the secret of the protagonist.

In addition, Znayu wrote about the first in the history of the Studio “Kvartal 95” pulp detective called “the Trap for the cat,” in which the actor Dmitry Surikov got the role of journalist Andrei Morozov.
