Razvan Crisan is co-founder of ShortsUP, founder of the ORICUM Association and a very proud promoter of creative industries in Romania. For over 6 years he has been working with youth, national/ international authorities, companies and media with the goal of spreading the spirit of a young generation willing to rethink the current status-quo. Besides ShortsUP, he was been involved in projects like: Filter Design, GoMentorship – e professional network that created a link between young people and potential professional mentors, Indygen – a telecom product dedicated to the needs of a digital-enabled generation.
Alina Chirvase is co-founder and Project Manager at ShortsUP. She coordinates the project development and makes sure that all the creative ideas come to life. For the past 4 years, she has been the Communication Manager of ShortsUP; she is passionate about branding, stories and creative industries management. She graduated the Faculty of Letters at the Bucharest University and holds a Masters Degree in business studies at the National School of Political and Administrative Studies in Bucharest. Alina has a seven years experience in television as editor, producer and New Media Project Manager. For six years, she has worked for ORICUM, the creative industries NGO that generated the short film project ShortsUP.
Alexandra Safriuc is the heart and soul of ShortsUP, being our Artistic Director.
Daniela Stefanescu is the Communication Officer. She is the voice of ShortsUP on the digital platform, social network or during the events, being in charge with content management, media relations and marketing strategies. With a Bachelor in Communication Studies and a Masters Degree in Visual Studies, Daniela developed a great attachment to stories as she likes to handle words in different forms and mediums.
Gabriel Juduc is the Sponsorship Manager of ShortsUP. He has a solid experience in marketing gained through 8 years of work in a multinational company, along with a great passion for film. In 2013 he made 10 advertising videos as a director, scriptwriter and producer. He is not only responsible for ShortsUP financial strategy but also in charge with spreading daily positive energy around the office.
George Popa is probably the most rational member of the team, as his office is always packed with contracts, budgets and invoices. He is the Chief Operations Officer – or as we like to say, the one who puts the ideas into practice. George graduated the National Economic Studies Academy in Bucharest and a Masters Degree in International Affairs. He also likes movies and biking.
Alex Lungu is sometimes the most quiet member of the team, especially during our film screenings. He is the video editor, the witty mind behind every ShortsUP trailer or video ad. Alex is also in charge with the quality and flow of films screenings and he graduated from the National University of Theater and Film “I.L. Caragiale”.
Roxana Luca is our Production Manager since 2011. She really knows how to bring the events to life, as she was a staff member of the biggest concerts and festivals in Romania and abroad (B’ESTFEST, Shakira, Sting, Madona). Along with George, she is in charge with making things happen.
ShortsUP would probably be just a nice idea without the help of a great team of volunteers. If you want to be one of the, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and don’t forget to include a few words about your motivation. We’ll get back to you right away. Thank you!
