Maxmilian Turek

Profession: DirectorWriter
Country: Czech Republic

I grew up on the streets of New York where through being chased by bodyguards off of marble pavements making skateboarding videos, I realised that my future lied in film making. Film sets seemed to be a safer option so from a young age I started dreaming up ideas, which with minimal equipment I began turning into reality. In the late teens I moved back to Europe and attended the University of Westminster in London studying film. At the same time, I began filming with boogie films juggling my time between London and Prague allowing me to evolve as a filmmaker working on projects in the professional industry, which introduced a whole new world of working under pressure. I love working on visual projects that push the boundaries of our everyday stereotypes.
