Life & Work with George Masin

Today we’d like to introduce you to George Masin.

Hi George, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
My story is about finding a way to express myself, to be able to live to create any kind of Art. I’ve always just needed this. Since I was a child, I realized that I wanted to be an actor and strongly followed this plan. I graduated High school and went to the International Slavic Institute in Moscow when I was 16 for a for year acting program. I was able to participate a big theater in Moscow as an actor for a full-time position. Also worked with separate contracts at two more theaters. Once visiting the United States, I met one person and after one year and a half, I moved to Los Angeles to live with that person and my life changed drastically. I couldn’t find myself as a full-time actor here for many reasons. But I couldn’t be a host for a long time because I wanted to be a creator of something and I started looking for my other hobbies which could possibly help me to build my new career. And I created a small website/portfolio with the stuff I was filming and photographing before. I found one place as an intern (Fashion Film Editor) at 838 Media Group and started working as hard as I could continuing working as a host and doing background jobs on sets to prove that I’m worthy. Eventually, I started filming by myself not only editing. For today I’ve worked with fashion magazines and clothing brands, producing Fashion Films, commercials, BTS, etc. I’m happy to be at this place. I feel like I already succeeded for me personally because I do it for living and that means I do it enough to love my daily work.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
No, it wasn’t smooth at all. But that’s how the whole world works. Being not a fan of any kind of competition, I had to keep going. Also, especially at the beginning, my biggest problem was English. I had to go to ESL three times a week and after to work. I used to feel like I was a three years old child not being to experience my feelings and explain my thoughts. And changing careers was a little stressful thing. But now I know we all are bigger in this case than we think of ourselves. We can do more than we planned.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I do fashion videos. I make content mostly for social media and magazines. And I love this feeling of creating things. I’m proud of being able to enjoy doing my job.

Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us?
My work is choppy. I like fast videos. I love glitches and crazy stuff. Glitches are our demons which are hidden inside. I get inspired by trance music, controversial emotions and thoughts. In my work, I want to show vulnerability of the models and strong sides of their personalities. I want to show naughty glam, I want to show beauty in the chaos. I called my style “Dirty Fashion”. And in the end, I want the audience to reflect, even for a little would be enough, what just happened and what was hidden in that small story. Because there’s no fashion without double meaning.
