Creative director and art director by trade. Marysia blends together perfectly art directed images with a focus on cultural relevance. Bold colors, unusual camera work and attention to detail are the pillars of her style. Marysia started directing short narrative and documentary pieces while working as an art director and later as a creative director at advertising agencies all over Manhattan. Her work quickly and naturally branched into commercials as well. The tipping point that led to her career switch from advertising to directing occurred when she received recognition and awards for her film work at multiple film festivals (Brooklyn Film Festival, Montreal Film Festival, Sao Paulo International Short Film Festival, among many others).
