Why the name?

  • “Beyond” — because we want this project to be constantly evolving. This project is more than our “livelihood”, it’s our lifestyle, and we want our lives to evolve, to become better, not just professionally, but personally. We want to learn from our mistakes in order to improve tomorrow.
  • “Creative” — because creativity is our best ally in taking this project forward and always bringing you good ideas, good projects and good surprises!
  • “20” — As the name suggests, it was a project that was born in 2020, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, and for us it was an important milestone in our history and in the creation of this project.


The Founders & CEOs


Fundadores da produtora Beyond Creative 20, Mariya Shupenya e Ricardo Silva


Photographer | Director | Video Editor | Motion designer

I was born in Portugal, in the municipality of Caldas da Rainha. 

I studied multimedia and graduated in sound and image. 

I was always interested in computerised effects for films and decided to direct my training towards this area. I soon realised that this was a very wide world. It was always an area that captivated me, because I knew I could create new worlds and tell new stories! 

I’ve had over 8 years' experience in photography, cinema, documentary filmmaking, interviews, promotional and institutional films, music videos, etc. 

I’ve had the opportunity to do work of national and international importance with companies such as the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, where I gained a lot of practice and knowledge in the area.


Professional Photographer | Professional High-End Photo Retoucher

I was born in Ukraine, in the city of Chernivtsi. 

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a special taste for the world of art, music and aesthetics. 

When I came to Portugal, I discovered a new world and new opportunities. 

I met Ricardo, who had already graduated in cinema, and together we set up our company Beyond Creative 20. 

I trained in photography and high-level professional photographic retouching.
