— Was it difficult to find a common language with the hero? Did he manage to relax himself in front of the camera right away?
— Surprisingly, I found a common language with Igor Yuryevich right away. We agreed in advance, even before the interview, about the meeting to get to know each other better, discuss the issues and see the location. And so it happened that at the meeting from the whole team I came alone. And I think it was for the best. When we first saw each other, I immediately felt something native in him, probably
because he reminded me outwardly and in the nature of my grandfather, just as simple, open and very friendly person. He showed me a workshop, products, for tea he told about himself, about the collection and at the same time showed his old gramophone and records. Watching the love with which he turns him on, with what enthusiasm he listens to barely distinguishable old melodies, he also sings along, I saw in him not only the master of knife products, not only the worker, but also the delicate, sensitive soul. Then the whole image was formed.
