This story origins in 1992 when Fyodor Bondarchuk with Stepan Mikhalkov realized the necessity of their own resource for the video content production and created “Art Pictures” company. At first, “Art Pictures” specialized exclusively in the production of videos and commercials. For its 20-year history “Art Pictures” has screened about 140 commercials. The company’s clients include such well known brands as: HEINZ, PHILIPS, Sony, Zikr (Colgate total), Kommersant, World Class, Pepsi (MTV), SladKo, the Tyumen Oil and Gas Company (TNK), Euroset, Hit FM, “107.4”, Mosenergo, Vnukovo Airlines.

Since 2002 a film production period has begun. During these times “Art Pictures” has released “Moving”, “Golden Eagle”, “Diary of a Kamikaze” and “The 9th Company” films. In 2006 “Art Pictures” acquired the status of a film company and became “Art Pictures Studio”. “The Heat” film was the first picture of an updated studio.

Cinema is a very high-tech form of art, that’s why Gars Telecom has decided to remove all the telecom-headaches from the “Art Pictures Studio”. After all, everyone must mind his own business: let the filmmakers make movies, and let us, telekommakers, provide them with seamless connection to the world and each other.
