Pawel combines creativity, responsibility, discipline and mental toughness – resulting in innovative solutions and effective decision making under time pressure and highly stressful situations.

He never ceases to amaze me and the whole team with his bold ideas and will to fight. I strongly believe in his ability to stay positive and proactive under any circumstances and to grow from challenges

that he is presented with.

Polari uncovers the chequered history and sad necessities behind a fun language that was used by Britain’s gay community up until the late 1960s. Charting the rise and fall of its use, it also reveals Polari’s endurance into modern times, and its continued ability to offend.

United Kingdom, LFS, 2017.

Pawel is one of the most talented AND hard-working people I know.

He can pay extreme attention to the details, without losing sight of the big picture. Blend it with great communication skills and a fantastic sense of humor... and you get someone everyone wants on their team.

I cannot recommend him highly enough. He's a gem.

Hence, we didn’t really have a need to express any dissatisfaction, but we’re sure Pawel is open to receiving constructive criticism – since he is always trying to improve his skills. He enjoys new challenges, and we’re more than sure that he will be able to live up to the most demanding expectations.

Pawel Achtelik.jpeg

Some of my fondest memories are built around the filming and editing of family videos - and I developed a deep appreciation of the emotive power of film from an early age. Through my love of film I immersed myself in the craft of filmmaking, taking up voluntary positions in several music and film festivals in Poland. I learned first hand that filmmaking is a multi-faceted vocation, necessitating a deep understanding of each contributing profession in order to be done well. I studied film and television production and after graduating moved to London to practise filmmaking and explore my creative passion. Currently working in a prestigious postproduction house, I continue to learn every day and pursue a career in editing.
