Katia: ‘I am really looking forward to making Chuck Studios grow. First and foremost we expand our offering of European quality food film & photography. Now that famous European consumer brands recognize the potential of the Culinary Identity tool, I am convinced Russian food brands will follow soon. My job is to bring Chuck Studios to a new level here. To boost our operations and make Chuck the most desired destination to make food related productions.
