Screamread is the moniker of Rotterdam based Filmmaker Margarita Kouvatsou.
The name, intended initially as mere wordplay, came to reflect my affinity for mixing and matching, blending different media and disciplines in the quest for something new. Text and image, the analogue and the digital, documentary and fiction are thrown into the mix to create new, aesthetic, rhythmic combinations.
I create moving image
I portray culture > Art, music, design and fashion
I direct and produce web content, promos, teasers, music videos, short documentary and fiction.
I work alone as a one (wo)man band as well as part of a team and collaborate whenever possible with experts from other fields, such as animators, colorists graphic, motion and sound designers.
It all starts with communicating the right intention.
My priority is to come up with the best concept that tackles the challenge at hand. With that in mind I create content that best serves the conceptual narrative while at the same time challenges the given form standards.
