I am a recent graduate of Kingston School of Art, where I was awarded with a First Class degree in Filmmaking.
During my time as an undergraduate, I gained professional experience on both documentary and fiction films, working with the production teams on a number of different projects. These have been broadcasted on TV and screened at film festivals around the globe.
I hold dual British-Polish nationality and in 2015 I decided to take a year out from University and move to Warsaw to gain further experience and knowledge of the Eastern European film industry.
Through my experiences studying and working, I became particularly interested in documentary films and photography. With a focus on the ideological side of film as opposed to the technical, I am particularly attracted to documentaries of a humanitarian nature. I would like to continue to work on professional productions as well as working on my own projects - with the aim to expand the views of my audience by bringing certain issues, injustices or untold stories to light, through exploration of the human condition.
For my graduation project, I directed and produced a short film about young artists in Palestine, and the restrictions and adversity they face. This documentary film, Rise Up, has been screened at a number of different festivals. A number of other University works I have self-made or collaborated on have also been screened at The British Film Institute.
In the future, I hope my work will continue to follow a similar pattern. I am currently learning Spanish, so I can work in and/or create film and photojournalistic material with the people of Central & South America - a culture and a part of the world that I find intriguing and fascinating.
I hope to screen and/or exhibit my work at various festivals, venues and classrooms across the globe and continue to present important themes and messages through the power of film and photography.
