Igor Myakotin is a documentary filmmaker from the Russian Far East who searches for cinematic authenticity and character-driven stories.

Igor's recent short documentary "Swan Song" was invited to premiere at Big Sky Documentary Film Festival and received an award for Outstanding Documentary Filmmaking at the 38th FINE CUTS at The New School in New York City. He worked as a cinematographer on Melody Gilbert's upcoming feature documentary "Silicone Soul" and as a second camera and a PA on Melody's previous film called "The Summer Help" about international student workers - mainly from Eastern Europe - in America's summer resorts. In the past Igor has worked at Bolster in Minneapolis editing videos for clients like Feeding America and RedBrick Health. Igor was also an outreach assistant working on “The Starfish Throwers” a documentary by Jesse Roesler, an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker.
