Недавно я участвовала в фантастических съёмках рекламы, режиссёром которой является Никита Самусев. Я была впечатлена объёму проделанной работы для реализации его идеи. На площадке Было безумно приятно наблюдать за его тонким творческим подходом к каждому кадру, за его желанием отобразить через эти кадры любовь и нежность. Очень ценные воспоминания и опыт!!!  Спасибо большое Ане, которая заботилась о нас и создавала всем нам уют и порядок!!! Никита, спасибо большое, что дал мне возможность быть в этом добром и трепетном проекте!!!
