Real name – Egor Vladimirovich Kotelnikov. Born in Almaty, Kazakhstan in 1990; moved to Denver, Colorado 11 years later and became interested in the art of filmmaking soon after. The ability to communicate ideas and emotions through body language and facial expression on film particularly fascinates him. He specializes in purposeful composition, camera movement and visual dynamics, which is why he is pursuing a career as a Director of Photography. His ultimate goal is producing an exceptional product while remaining open minded during the process. George is privileged to lead the very talented Perplexity Pictures team alongside his partner, Sinjin Jones.
His favorite films use dialogue sparingly and inspire deep thought.

Writer. Director. Teacher.
From a young age, writing and acting out stories for the neighborhood with his siblings, Sinjin knew that storytelling was the thing he wanted to spend his life doing. Through high school it was using writing, performance poetry, and theatre and through college film added into the mix. But the main focus has always been on trying to tell unique and interesting stories through multiple mediums. Sinjin thrives on creating under any circumstance and enjoys the challenge an independent production company offers. He looks forward to creating with his partner, George Kotelnikov, and the astonishingly talented group of people Perplexity boasts as members and he cannot wait to see the next creation.
His favorite films are those engaged deep in psychology, dwelling in the dark corners of the human mind

Bryan wasn’t always an artist. As a kid he was a tinkerer. Dismantling remote controls, lighting things on fire, and testing physics were his forte. During high school his love of prose and journalism began and it carried into college. Currently he is a Film and Video Production major and Digital Design minor at CU Denver. His specialty is lighting design, creating motion in the lens with lighting. Bryan’s experience in graphic design includes traditional print (newspaper/magazine layout), brand identity/logo design and expressive typography with his latest venture being motion graphics. He’s always trying to find a way to connect the dots between his passions—something says he just might find a way.
