More than just a man with a movie camera.
Człowiek Kamera isn’t a proper name – it’s just Polish for camera man. The director decided to adopt the moniker while he was studying film at the University of Lodz. His inspiration was Soviet director and operator Dziga Vertov and his avant-garde film Man With a Movie Camera.
While the Camera Man’s initial experimentations with cinematography started off documenting live music, his filmmaking soon diversified into more created music videos.
Almost ten years since he first picked up a camera, Człowiek Kamera has worked with some interesting artists from around the world, has had his work featured at several festivals around Europe and was nominated for a UKMVA in 2013.
