The founders of the company - producers Valery Todorovskiy, Anastasia Biryukova, and Maxim Koroptsov - consider the joint work on the film "Country of the Deaf" (1996), as a company’s founding point.

The studio has more than a hundred prestigious awards of both Russian and international film festivals.





Online cinema Okko, Originals Production Centre and Valery Todorovsky's Marmot-Film studio have started shooting a new 12-part detective thriller "Kidnapping".

The director of the project - Kirill Pletnev. The author of the script was Ksenia Kiyashko, and as a cameraman-director was invited Egor Kochubey.
The main roles in the series will play Marina Vasilyeva, Timofey Tribuntsev, Dmitry Kulichkov, Arthur Vaha, Rinal Mukhametov, Isabel Eidlen, Egor Kenzhametov and others.
The story will tell about the captain of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Aglaia Mezentseva (Marina Vasilyeva) and investigator Vsevolod Kosinskiy (Timofey Tribuntsev), one of the best specialists in the search for children, who unravel the case of the missing 5-year-old grandson of the world-famous conductor Mark Krechetov (Artur Vakha). The child mysteriously disappeared during a walk with his nanny, and the woman herself received a blow to the head and lost her memory. Literally all members of the Krechetov family come under suspicion and Kosinskiy spares no one for the sake of achieving results. Aglaia does not accept Kosinskiy's methods, but nevertheless becomes his best pupil. The more Aglaia unravels the tangle of complicated family relations and financial fraud in the Krechetov family, the more she must sacrifice - her peace of mind, career, lives and feelings of other people. And even put at risk her unborn child.

The series will be released exclusively in the online cinema KION from December 1.

Yulia Snigir, actress:
"For me, the role of Varya is special, as I have not played anything similar in the movie. In her, as in my other heroines, there is definitely drama, but the story itself is very witty and airy - and I couldn't ignore that. I was always very funny inside: the script is beautifully written, and I hope the audience will appreciate it too. I'd also like to mention the talented production designer Vladimir Gudilin. He fills the space with life in an incredible way, you get a full sense of its reality, and in this way the character of a person is formed: you enter the set, and everything about the hero is clear to you. Moreover, I took home a huge number of items from Varya's apartment, and now they not only remind me of these shootings, but also decorate my home.



"Made in Russia" is Snob's annual award. In 2023, it was held for the 12th time - the club members, readers of the site, experts and the editorial staff once again chose the best projects invented and realized by russians in Russia.

Originals Production Center and Valery Todorovsky's Marmot-Film studio started shooting a new drama for Okko "Grown-ups" - Ekaterina Todorovskaya's directorial debut.
"Grown-ups" is the story of three friends - Lisa, Sonya and Yana - who have been friends since childhood and grew up on the same dacha. Usually, a girl at 25 has already graduated from the institute, has work experience and several romances behind her back. Someone even manages to get married and give birth to a child. But our characters do not have everything according to plan. They do not yet know who they want to be and have not yet found the love of their lives. They grow up, strive for happiness, and each is looking for her own way.

Ekaterina Todorovskaya, director: "I wrote a story about me and my girlfriends. About our friendship and our growing up. It often happens that at 25 you don't know yet what you want to be and you haven't found the love of your life. You suffer, you agonize, you wait for advice from your friend. You're searching for yourself. I think that should be close to everyone. My team is amazing. They are very talented and professional people. And what wonderful actors we have! Of course, I'm nervous before shooting, it's my debut anyway. But I feel a lot of support and I really hope that everything will work out.

"The script of the detective series "Bison: The Case of the Mannequin Girl" we wrote more than 5 years, and I am very pleased with how exciting it turned out. We will see the Soviet, as they say now, glamor, which was hidden and inaccessible to ordinary Soviet people, but this world was, and it was in its own way dangerous, fascinating, and the world of models - especially interesting and attractive. The artists recreated the atmosphere, scenery, costumes of Moscow in the 70s, and it was the most difficult in the realization of such a plan. And who knows, perhaps "Bison: The Case of the Mannequin Girl" will be the beginning of a great detective saga, which will have a continuation".

The shooting of series “Death of a Fashion Model” has ended

The post-production of the retro-detective series “Death of a Fashion Model”. The series is produced for channel One. The shooting mainly took place in Moscow and the last days the crew spent in Chelyabinsk Oblast.
The project was very challenging: the script took 5 years to write and the shooting lasted for half a year. The artists did a phenomenal job of recreating the costumes and decorations of the 70-s in order to dive into the atmosphere of the time. We congratulate everyone who took part in the project with this step!

Actor, Sergey Bezrukov: – It is sad to part with Bessonov, but all projects end at some point. I often get asked whether it is easy to get out of the role after the shooting. Not always. Sometimes it’s hard and this is the case here. Half a year in this role while being in the 70-s atmosphere - it feels like another lifetime.
