is a team work and one of the best things about making it is the cooperation with various talented people. Ordinarily I work with a team led by me and associated under the name of Katodelic Pictures.
It's a dynamic team made up of young Silesian artists with hearts full of passion. We are all very much on the same page and the diversity of our hard-working personalities enables us to cope with every challenge.
Our 1st work alone made under this name led to us receiving the award in New York.

ago when I was still but a child I started making films. Narrative films, music videos, promos, documentaries, commercials etc. Since then I have been working both as a director and cinematographer as well as shooting, editing, writing or producing films and their music. In short, I am in my 16th year of making my childhood dreams come true.
both in and external. A freedom to think, discover, exchange and choose are all important to me. Thanks to this virtue I am where I am right now and indeed this is also something that seeps through into my films, the way in which I share my outlook of life.
with Humanity, Art and Beauty as experienced through the emotions and senses. I want to discover how the world itself ticks along, which is, in fact, already present in chemistry, maths and physics. Indeed in many ways making a film is somewhat like a chemical reaction with narrative, feelings and artistic elements constituting its substrates that wondrously create a completely new substance, weaved from light and wave, which can truly move the soul.
is my film set. I live, learn and work in four languages, whilst still keeping my hand in two others.
life in which I do not like to limit myself to rigid frames, rather absorb from different sources. For example, I have graduated in MSc Nuclear Engineering at one of the oldest and best universities in the world; the University of Pisa, Italy, after graduating with a first in BSc Chemical Engineering and Technology (led in English) at the Silesian University of Technology in Poland.
are one of the most important ingredients in the art of film. Cooperation with passionate and dedicated artists is one of the things I love the most about cinema.
I made my most acclaimed film popping back to Poland one weekend, which was shot within 48 hours as part of the 48 Hour Film Project. We won and got through to the international finals in the USA.
We had made our 1st attempt at the 48 HFP a year previously but our comedy about Fortune had not been successful. However, people heard about us when we got the Best International Film Award at the film festival in New York which was a record case for any film made entirely in 48 hours.
On the 1st anniversary of David Bowie's death, we released a music video of a prog-rock song paying tribute to his work and life. Later we received, among others, the Best Music Award at the Freedom Film Festival in Malaysia with around 2,500 other films submitted.
The most wonderful job I was commissioned was spending a few summers at one of the best and largest summer camps in America. Having an impact on boys enjoying the time of their lives while learning the most important things in life, was a unique experience for my filmmaking career.
