Screenwriter and translator in Warsaw, Poland

About Marcin

A graduate of Applied Linguistics at Warsaw University and Screenwriting at Warsaw Film School, combining his knowledge of languages and film in translation and writing. As a writer I've worked on a comedy TV series and a scripted docu-drama. My debut feature film screenplay, "Bitter Violet", was selected for the finals (top 9) of the most prestigious screenwriting competition in Poland - Script Pro 2016. Currently, I'm developing "Bitter Violet" with a producer and a film director. I've recently sold a concept for a documentary TV series, which will be aired on Canal+ Discovery in Poland and I'm developing an international TV series "1989" as a co-creator.
