Head of Music
Shelter Film, Kyiv
From Kyiv, Dasha Deriagina has become so highly regarded for her work on UK-commissioned music videos that she has been nominated for the Best Producer award at the UKMVAs for the past two years. Born and raised in the Ukrainian capital, she’s a 29-year-old graduate of Chinese Language and Literature and Translation, who lived and worked in Hong Kong and mainland China for over two years before returning to work in film production in her hometown.
At that point, Kyiv was ramping up its reputation as a place for outstanding, cost-effective service production, and it’s been non-stop for Dasha ever since. In the past three years, she has worked with the cream of the new generation of music video directors, including Matilda Finn, Zhang & Knight, Joao Retorta, Hector Dockrill, and Taz Tron Delix – and British producers.
