Alona Tarka fell in love with film-making in her early twenties and once she enrolled in St. Petersburg Film School, Alona immediately began working with various independent film production companies in this vibrant and creative city. She continued embracing every aspect of the film-making process after moving to Scotland – gaining experience in every department, from Costumes to Camera, while directing her own short films on the side. Having developed a fascination for story-telling through connected images, her focus has remained in post-production – gaining an excessive knowledge about the unlimited possibilities of film-making and editing over the last 10 years.

Presently, Alona is an Offline Editor with a reputation for picking specific points of a narrative, transforming it into solid and engaging content. She has been praised for her music choices fitting the tone of the scene, creating rhythm, pace and tension whilst telling an extraordinary story. Her skills in the Post-Production process and long-established experience with Avid has allowed her to cover all genres from drama and documentaries to corporate and web promotions. This experience has helped her to grow stylistically and technically in parallel with the industry as well as develop a strong level of expertise in her profession.

Alona’s qualities has allowed her to work for several renowned UK production companies and facilities including BBC, ITV/STV, Zigzag, 422.tv, IWC, Mentorn and Tern to fulfil the clientele of major broadcast channels such as BBC2 and BBC Scotland, ITV, Channel 4, SKY1, UKTV and Discovery. Read Less
