Mirek Stanlej Stanek




Director and DoP with many years of experience in film, commercials and music video production. In 2017 he became a finalist of Papaya Young Directors contest and his project was awarded for the best cinematography. He made commercials for companies such as YOPE, BP2, Acuvue and Wiśniowski, as well as many original documentary projects focusing on extreme sports, skateboarding and independent music. He made his own TV documentary called „Music Above The City” and music videos for artists like Damian Syjonfam or Taraban. He is an author of two feature films about skateboarding: „Jego Śmiertnik” and „Pogo – Odrzut” – he’s always searching for an inspiration in the street life, while making and planning new projects. 

 Mirek is always seeking the truth in his films and tries to capture what’s most humane, honest and real. He often uses material shot stealthily, while the character does not realise he is being filmed. The day of the shoot is like a holiday for him, so he values good atmosphere on set. He perceives a film as a collective work and each production is a common project of everyone involved.
