“Masha Rachko provides an honest, reliable and efficient production service, ensuring that the process from visa applications right through to post-shoot reconciliation runs as smoothly as possible. Masha understands the need for professional English-speaking technicians and makes every effort to source them.”

Allon Wechsler (Line Producer)

“I just wanted to say a very big thank you for all the time, effort and understanding you brought to the Nokia shoot. It wasn't easy, the demands of the job snowballed and the resources stayed exactly the same. The cut wouldn't have looked anything at all if you and your team(s) hadn't made such an amazing effort and managed to be charming and good natured all the while.”

Junket Productions for Paramount Pictures «Transformers 3» premier at Moscow film festival
June 2012

“Fantastic crew and equipment you assembled it was such an wonderful experience to work at such a distant frontier with so much history and have everything we wanted to work and go as smoothly as it did. In my life's journey I do wish I would have the opportunity to return, if not I will always put in a good word for you to handle anything for any future productions.”

Kevin Mulvey
Junket Productions Inc.

“A big Russian THANK YOU to all of you for your contribution in Moscow at the TF3 “global junket”. The movie opened today with the biggest box office opening of 2011. So I feel like we all did our job helping to get the TF3 word out there. It was a lot of hard work but I think overall a great success.
Thanks for making it a great show!”

Jody Pritchard (Producer)
Junket Productions Inc.


“Masha, In my opinion, from the moment I contacted you I have experienced a very professional yet flexible attitude and insight regarding my request . I must also compliment the selection of crew, and the crew themselves which were very hard-working experienced people with a pleasant way of interacting. Cameraman was very resourceful in providing me just the right footage, when my insight at the end of the day was not as sharp anymore. I would like to emphasise the equipment selection was exactly I am used working with, a high end industrial ENG set which completed the production completely in matter of image quality. Thank you again for your professionalism, your quick response and involvement. I’m looking forward to us meeting and cooperating again soon!”

I have never worked with a more competent, reliable person than Masha. Masha was great, very professional, took care of everything and got us out of some very tough jams. She worked on the series "MonsterQuest" for me, got us out of many troubles, worked hard, extremely resourceful, pleasant to work with. What can I say? Hire her. You're lucky you found her."

Viktoria Barrett
The Edge Picture Co. Ltd


"Just a few words about Masha. She was head of TV Production at Ogilvy Moscow while I was ECD of that agency.
I was impressed by her no-nonsense approach, her forward thinking and her realistic frame of mind when she handled projects. All of which comes from the fact that she has many years of experience.
Quite what is the nature of what you may be asking her to do I have no idea but whatever it is I'm sure she will handle it well, given her attention to detail.
As a final testament I have since started my own agency here in Moscow - Umbrella - and it is to Masha that I turn when we have a TV commercial to produce."

Kind regards,
Loz Simpson
