As perviously mentioned, I worked as a foley mixer and sound editor on the Russian DAU project at Phenomen UK over the past few years. After a successful world premiere at Berlinale earlier this year, some of the films are now available to view online (with more to be released later).

DAU. Natasha & DAU. Degeneratsiya Reviews
As mentioned on my previous post, I worked on the Russian DAU project as an in-house Foley Mixer and Sound Editor. Two of the feature films produced from the unique arts project received a world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival last month.
DAU. Natasha was rewarded 5 stars from the Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw, and the film also got a “Critic’s Pick” B+ rating from IndieWire’s Eric Kohn.
DAU. Degeneratsiya also received high critical acclaim, with the film scoring an overall 2nd place rating with the critics out of all of the Berlinale 2020 entries.
There were also favourable reviews of both films by The New York Times’ A.J. Goldman, and MUBI’s Ela Bittencourt.
More info on future DAU releases can be viewed on the project’s official website.
DAU Berlinale Premiere
Between 2016 to 2019 I worked on the Russian DAU project as an in-house Foley Mixer and Sound Editor at Phenomen Films in London. After a Paris release event last year, two of the film projects Dau. Natashsa and Dau. Degeneratsia have been selected for a world premiere at the Berlin film festival.
*UPDATE* An official website is now live at https://dau.com/
This is an independent feature film set in the Basque country about a young couple who have trouble consummating their fledgling relationship in their parents’ homes. I helped out with the dialogue edit as well as doing the sound edit for the teaser video embedded below:
