Trained in photography, he combines technological and artistic ingenuity with a passion for surpassing the boundaries of new media art.
Sakchin leads Moment Factory’s creative team of creative directors, multimedia directors, artistic directors, designers, concept artists, animators, editors, directors of photography and managers. Altogether, Moment Factory comprises more than 250 in-house employees plus dozens of project-based freelancers and subcontractors.
