He made his own tv documentary called „Music above the city” and music videos for such artists as Damian Syjonfam or Taraban. In 2017 he was a finalist of Papaya Young Directors contest and his project was awarded for the best cinematography. He is an author of two feature films about skateboarding: „Jego Śmiertnik” and „Pogo – odrzut”, while making and planning new projects he’s always searching for an inspiration in the life of the street.

In his films he is always seeking the truth, and tries to capture what’s most humane, honest and real. Oftentimes does he use material shot stealthily, while the character didn’t know they were filmed. The day of the shooting is like a holiday for him, so the good atmosphere on set is of a great value for him. He sees a film as a collective work and each production is a common project of everyone involved.
