Cinematographer & Director

About me, Maxim Klujev

I graduated in 2017 with a Masters in Cinematography at the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava.
I began my carrier during my studies, shooting music videos for various artists, commercial videos and short films. I am known for talking intensely and visually about shots, using mostly hand-held camera to orchestrate the feeling of life in my shots.
My first documentary feature film was called „Tempos“ which I also co-directed. It showed the carrier path of Patrik „Rytmus“ Vrbovský, a famous hip hop artist. The film called for cinematic, yet authentic visuals. 
My second feature film, directed by Barbora Sliepková, will be an urban essay „The Lines“ which was shot black and white and using only natural lighting. We worked together on a critically acclaimed TV series „Ikons“ and several commercial works. 
I worked on various commercials with different production companies such as Toxpro, Protos, Filmaari, Hitchhiker etc. ____
My favourite works include commercials for clients such as Vagus, Tesco, Pilsner Urquell or Za slušné Slovensko.
Currently I´m in early development phase for a fiction film.
Further I am available for new film projects, commercials and music videos.
