This mini-doc shares the story of Władysław Tomczyk, a gentleman we unexpectedly met in Katowice, Poland after wrapping a month-long commercial project throughout Europe. His hopeful message of creating life-work by honing one's natural ability is one we value to the core at Variable. What began as an insightful conversation, motivated us to extend our trip by 3 days so we could capture this inspiring man's life.
With no pre-developed story or shot-list, we let our curiosity & conversations with Wladyslaw guide the film. As a result, his outlook on life furthered our belief that contentment through self-acceptance trumps societal approval.
Free your mind.

Go to one spot, don't move the tripod but you can pan, tilt, zoom camera. Hit record and don't button off for ten minutes and try and get as many varied shots as possible. This is what I did and you can see my results below...
A bit of fun and designed to show off the power of a camera with a nice big fixed zoom lens!
