Let’s make something awesome!



I am a multidisciplinary and highly imaginative filmmaker with a versatile skill set, also a visual explorer inspired by a cinematic eye and a passion to always push the creative boundaries of my work.





I am an Editor, Colorist & Motion Designer with many years of global experience. With a keen eye for detail and urge for innovation. Mixing bold artistic vision with high technical expertise.



I am a Graphic designer, Photographer and retoucher with more than 6 years experience, based in Poland. Always looking for agencies, creative partners or freelancer jobs around the world. 

A reflection of the moment captured, a moment that can never be repeated.


Photography has become one of many ways to reveal my soul and show my feelings and it has been my passion for a few years. My work probably says more about me than anything I could, photography and Film connect me and they are my voice.

Ser humano é entender a fragilidade de cada movimento que pode sempre ser o ultimo, e perceber o quanto isso pode ser crucial para definir cada passo dado durante a vida, seis diferentes relações de pessoas completamente diferentes sobre o que é ser humano.



To be a Human being is to understand the fragility of every movement that can always be the last and realize how crucial it can be to define each step taken during life, six different relationships of completely different people about what it is to be human.


Director’s Statement from Alan Alves, Director of Being.

I am a curious person, all the time trying to see the magic of the storytelling that is the real life day by day minute after minute of our lives. By all forms of media such as audio, visual, storytelling I can create the more powerful piece of art creating and recreating ideas, stories, concepts and feelings. I am completely passionate about the art of expressing myself as a filmmaker by the importance of saying what I have inside me, the image in movement rules my life.
I want to create videos that have a strong connection with life, I want to say what I think about life.
The last film that I produce and directed, called Being is a documentary that argues about the meaning and of the importance of to being human, I questioned persons about their self-relationships with the world around them.
The life, literature and philosophy move my thoughts, and the films that I do are the result of all that affects me.

I finished my latest documentary in a few months ago, titled "Being" is a Documentary where I discuss the main questions about the personal relationship, that we, human being have with ourselves. The interviewees had to face questions as What is its value? What would you miss if you do not exist? The answers are amazing and unexpected.

I am a book addicted.
