While some enter the wonderful world of filmmaking through photography, Konstantin Mazov’s winding path commenced with his passion for the yo-yo. And he was serious about it too: taking part in the all-Russia championships, he would film his adventures with a handy-cam. With time, the filming process took over his attention leading Konstantin further away from a soaring yo-yo career. Mazov can’t imagine his life without an endless source of information and inspiration - he likes to keep his mind thoroughly entertained. Konstantin values commercials for not pretending to be what they aren't and expects cinema to stand up to Paul Thomas Anderson’s standards. Apart from bearing essential skills any brilliant DOP should have, Mazov also mastered the artistry of card tricks and he can touch his nose with his tongue.
