On a drab winter day, a lonely girl finds a bouquet of balloons and transforms her city into a more colorful place.



Freelance production specialist. Growing up in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Takanaev entered the television industry at age 15 when she hosted a pop culture show for teens, going on to direct and produce shows and live television when she was 20. She can produce, manage, and assist a production of any scope whether it’s a film or commercial (maybe not a Michael Bay movie). She also loves directing and is pursuing that dream one film at a time.
