My name is Michael John Gerard Shatravka, fluent Russian speaker, born & raised in NYC, now based out of Bayonne, NJ. I am a full stack guerilla style media producer. What that means is, I am your one point of contact, that will get the entire job done, no middle man BS. I don’t fuss over paperwork and storyboards. I show up and create fire with whatever I got. Firm believer in fix it in post. At this point, I have worked on over 750+ projects, across multiple industries with well over a thousand people. I am so confident in what I do, I can back every project with a money-back satisfaction guarantee, you will not be disappointed!
“The Idle Mind is the Devil’s Workshop”
My mom got me into web design and making videos as kid. Took many years hobbying around, but in 2013 after a traumatic motorcycle accident, that’s when I realized life was too short. I got involved in the film/acting world for a few years, had some roles playing Russian mobsters, eventually in 2016 I met the love of my life, Mamacita, and got married.
I realized quick acting wasn’t gonna support a family, that when I switched to the other side of the camera, figuring sh*t out fast, and working on every job I could get. Some call me a jack of all trades, at the end of the day I’m just really f*cking good at what I do.
For fun I like going on extreme adventure with my mamacita. Long hikes, rollerblading, 50mi bike rides, I may have gotten fat but I still got it in me. If I’m not working on any paid stuff, I like doing gritty mini documentaries and getting my hands dirty.
Some ending words, feels like I been around for a while but I am still young. Very grateful for finding my career early in life and HIGHLY appreciate all the people that helped me get to where I am today, especially the haters, love you guys, you helped fuel the fire!
