Meet Konstantin Frolov of Konstantin Frolov Cinematographer in South Bay

Today we’d like to introduce you to Konstantin Frolov.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Konstantin. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
My name is Konstantin Frolov and I am a Cinematographer and Creative head of PressPlay Media Production Company. I started to work in the film industry in Moscow around 2009, but technically I started many years ago, I used to be a video and sound engineer at school (between 2000-2003). Since that time I’ve participated in various productions of different kinds, worked as a camera operator, editor and sound editor. I also gained solid experience in troubleshooting and later began to work as an independent DP on short films and music videos.

I worked on Projects such as Q13: Zhalgyzym(TV Movie), The Demo (Feature Film), Nothing Can Stop Us (Feature Documentary), Yumna (Short film), The Millionaires (TV Series), Crime Cleaners (TV Series) and multiple award-winning. I have collaborated with list of famous Artists such as Domingo Zapata, Musicians such as Orgy, Ookay, Florian Picasso, YouTube artists such as Rudy Mancuso, Anwar Jibawi & Simon Rex, Inanna Sarkis, Hanna Stocking, Dom Zeglaitis, Big Nik with close to 60 Million total views on a videos that we worked together. Also, I create and shoot contents for commercials and music videos.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
There is never a smooth road. Especially in this field. I think the biggest challenge is to take control over your feelings and emotions and don’t let the bad ones take over you. If you’re staying positive you can pass every single obstacle. And the obstacles and struggles help you to understand that you took the right way.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I’ve found a good mix between art and business where one part doesn’t interfere with another. I don’t follow any one style or copy anyone. My experience and expertise give me the opportunity to professionally execute any types of projects and also give me space to try something new and something different.

Since I specialize in visuals, objects, colors and camera movements I can create a product that is unique and has the meaning, and then I can look from a different perspective so it adds that juice that makes it special. I think these are the reasons I had a chance to work with talents like Teyana Taylor, Domingo Zapata, Florian Picasso, Christian Meyer, Steve Wozniak and many more.

What were you like growing up?
I always loved new technology. All that film cameras, new computers appearing, then laptops, media. I’m so happy that I’ve seen the world changed while growing. And I will always be excited about that.
