Marek Skorupski - a film editor by vocation!
Currently one of the most experienced commercials, music videos and documentary films editors; respected by many directors. Projects edited by Marek won dozens of prizes both at Polish and international competitions and festivals. But where did his success start?
Early 90s. The after school club. Television and music videos were first shown on MTV! It was a love at first sight and he started dreaming of doing these kind of things in the future. To make clips and films that move people’s hearts.
Half way through the 90s the dream started becoming reality. Marek started working as a film editor at Polish National Television (TVP) where he was systematically improving his professional qualifications.
Everything started with „Stokrotka”
His first clip edited in 1998 called „Stokrotka” for the band T.Love (directed by Mariusz Palej) – wins the silver Grand Prix at the Yach Film Festival and with this prize the editor gained momentum to further his professional development. Only a year later, the video clip based on Cezary Pazura’s song „Przystojny jestem” wins the gold Grand Prix at the same festival. From this point on Marek sees that the dreams are coming true. This mindset helps in reaching his next goals.
Years of experience in charity, art and commercial projects
Marek is a member of the Polish Film Editor Association (Polskie Stowarzyszenie Montażystów) – an organization bringing together the best film editors in Poland, since its origins in 2005. As a freelancer, Marek works for most of the recognized directors, artists and brands, both in Poland and internationally. He edits films, music videos and commercials, including promos for big social campaigns. The best examples of the quality of his work are gold prizes for film editing of the commercial „Pond” (directed by Maciek Kowalczuk) for Simplus and „Piotr” (directed by Joanna Rechnio) for VW Bank – awarded KTR prize in 2009.
An advertising spot he edited „I’m not asking to be a firefighter” (directed by Maciek Kowalczuk) is an important part of social campaign for people with disabilities, and has won many prices including the Golden Drum and Silver Drum 2016. Marek has recently finalized a documentary film „Love and Empty words”, directed by Małgorzata Imielska. He’s planning to debut in the feature films arena in the near future.
