Giovani Rana

Pleasant Italian time …
It was very nice to work with a team of Giovanni Rana. Only two ladies from Verona perfectly prepared Italian tortellini for shoot. I love close encounters with food … mostly in extreme camera close-ups…

I have a feeling that any moment when an accident happens, this moment is something incredible … something that takes a long time. Something like a FREEZ.

Dagadana "List do Ciebie"

A visit to Tokyo is like a trip to the moon… „List do ciebie” („A letter to you”) directed by Piotr Onopa is indeed like a walk in a cosmic amusement park. Janusz Różewicz’s subtle poetry clashes with the reality of a Japanese metropolis – full of flashing neon, vivid colors and fast-paced city life. This reality, well-known from Sophia Coppola’s movie „Lost in translation”, is presented from the point of view of young Japanese citizens.

"The First Day of Summer"

„The First Day of Summer”

I have started shooting new feature film. That is sensual, multi-dimensional story.

The title refers to the famous Konwicki’s work „Last Day of Summer”, the one who had establish the Polish Film School.

Characters are lost, they attract and repel each other, trying to find a way out of this vicious place where they find themselves suddenely.

They want, and at the same time, they do not want to come back to their reality.

Long and good quiet time for me — in progress…

What Is The Word?

I was finish a shooting for director’s debiut of Mariusz Marszal.

The story of film is related to the drama „Das wundervolle Zwischendig” German playwright Martin Heckmanns. It is story about the fate of Anne and Johan, who wants to rescue their relationship. They starts autobiographical film about himself…

Slowly, and many mastershots takes, gives this story theatrical atmosphere. No one here is not in a hurry: narrative of this story, the acting, and specialy camera movement.
