I met Kamil Polak in 2001 during the exams at the Polish National Film School in Łódź. I was presenting my graduation movie “Mouse” and Kamil his first student short “Birth of the Nation”. That year we were the only two students from the School who didn’t use 35mm camera and created movies with CGI.
In the next years we kept helping each other with our films. Kamil did some work for my shorts “Penguin” and “Splinter“. I animated some scenes for Kamil’s “In” and “The Lost Town of Switez”. In the meantime we provided services for commercial purposes, inside our artistic group “Ploi Studio“, that we founded.
In 2011 I joined Warsaw-based Human Ark studio. Kamil was already there. In march 2011 we directed our first commercial.
