Biography

George Agadjanean was born in 1986 in the city of Chisinau, Moldova.

At the age of 15 he was offered his first job at Moldova Film as stage assistant on the shooting stage. However, his first big project was Bucharest Express, a co-production of Moldova and USA, where George worked as lighter assistant, griper and dolly assistant. After this three months project he was frequently invited on the shooting stage for video clips or ads. In 2002 he enters the Academy of Music and Fine Arts, the faculty of TV Directing.
