Ava Ismaiylova is one of the most perspective female producers under 30 based in Los Angeles, CA, an active supporter of the increased presence of female filmmakers in the industry.
Ava is a fashion journalist and photographer in the past, so transforming into the film producer was a very natural process for her – storytelling but just in the other form – visual.
Ava got the trial job as an assistant producer on the commercial for a production company in London. A crew of more than 100 people, more than 200 extras, acres of lands as a location. She only had 5 hours – while they were traveling from London to the location, to understand what is in her responsibilities and how films get done. Everything was great apart from the Walkie-Talkies…She was so scared to say anything out loud into the microphone that she was running around to get the tasks done herself without asking for help. By the end of the day, she literally could not walk. Next day she decided to overcome her fear. Lesson – don’t be afraid and speak up!
She always says that she recommends her colleagues in the industry to take control, and actively manage their time, “give” to others, as she believes it makes you feel good, even the tiniest act of kindness. She also believes that you don’t have to be successful to help others. Ava supports female filmmakers, “Radio From The American Sector” is a short film that is now being developed into a TV Series, is led by two female filmmakers. Its writer/director was Karyn Barnett-Day, and the producer was Kaitlyn Brown. Ava saw the Indiegogo campaign and loved the story so much that she offered a collaboration. She is currently producing a documentary regarding a very important, global environmental issue in California.
Her favorite quote is “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” by George Bernard Shaw. “I never wanted to find myself, I believe anything is possible you just have to take care of it.” – says Ava – “You have to become your own dream no matter what.”

ALL WRITTEN TEXT IS BELOW
My name is Super Manny Creative Director at Disrupt.
What I wanted to share today is the power of networking. and I know networking has been mentioned many times when it comes to networking and building businesses and things like that but i still don’t think that people understand the power of leveraging. So one of the things I want to explain about is actually a topic that’s very close to me. and it is about networking within the creative community. just in your area or your town or even in your state.
A lot of times many people don’t understand the power of networking and leveraging other peoples resources and other peoples time. So let’s put this into perspective so you as a Photographer , you have your certain strength, your certain niche, your forte. Whether You are a product photographer, portrait photographer or wedding photographer., maybe you do events. You have a certain brand that you are building and certain clientele that you work with. However, being in that brand there are many other clients who also reach out to you for different types of work.
So if you create a network of different types of photographers, then you guys are able to collaborate with each other. When an event comes up, then I know a certain event Photographer, I can link them two together. Same, Let’s say an event photographer that knows a product photography client that needs help then he will call me and vice-versa. So when you leverage each others strengths, not only are you doing the work that you love but also you are doing it correctly and growing Your business properly.
However if you try to do it Yourself, let’s say I do an event but i’m not fully equipped for events. I try to do maybe portrait photography but your are not familiar with studio lighting or even natural lighting when it comes to human subjects. Instead build a network of different photographers with there different strengths and collaborate with each other that way you can feed off of each others creativity, and then the work can continue to flow and go around.
What I see a lot of times especially in the industry that i’m in and the state that I am in, New Jersey there’s a lot of competition. “ I wanna be the best and I don’t want to see you grow” however, we need to break that, and we need to build a community where we all help each other and then in that way we will all grow. Because Imagine how powerful it will be, working together, leveraging everybody’s networks and everybody’s strengths to bring out the best of us for our clients. So I want you to take that into consideration. then, let me know what industry are you in and what are the ways you think you can connect with other creatives or not only just creatives but also other professionals in Your industry and how you guys can work together or maybe a story that You already have, where You had an amazing collaboration come through by using each others strengths. Alright guys thanks again. This is Super Manny with Disrupt and Can’t wait to see you guys in the next video.
