In 2002, together with Kamil Polak, we founded an independent group of filmmakers (students and graduates of the Polish National Film School in Lodz), called Ploi. During the following months we created 2 shorts (my “Penguin” and Kamil’s “In”) and did a dozen of jobs (mostly commercials).
The Ploi group broke apart in 2003. I was offered a job in Digital Domain studio in Los Angeles and Kamil began the production of his amazing short film “The Lost Town of Switez”.
We kept knocking at Agencies’ and Production Houses’ doors equipped with the Ploi group showreel recorded on VHS tapes.
