Co-founder and head of the Russian division of Blitz Films, Sergey is the Chairman of the Board of Directors and majority owner of the leading Russian insurance company – RESO, which he started in 1991 with Avtobank and Chupa-Chups.
After 24 years of leading RESO to continued success, in 2015 Sergey decided to follow in his son's footsteps by pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. With this objective in mind, he returned to school to obtain a Masters degree in Scriptwriting and Directing from the Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography in Moscow.
Sergey depicted this career change in his directorial debut short film, "Who Am I?".
The following year, Sergey's short film "Floating" premiered at the Russian Pavililion at the Cannes Film Festival. Months later, he produced the feature film, "Krasny", his son Nikolai's directorial debut before going on to direct his first film "To Paris", which is currently in post-production.
Using his keen business sense and knowledge of building a leading business from the ground up combined with his passion for entertainment and love for his family – Sergey created Blitz Films with his son Nickolay with the intent to bring story-driven scripts to life.
After acquiring the rights to "The Fixies", an animated series that has over a billion views online and has aired on Russian televisions for over 10 years, they produced the animated feature which was the top grossing animated feature at the box office during its run.
Sergey is currently developing films and TV series with academy award winning writers, directors and actors including Al Pacino.
