Stan Mytkowski
Creative Director / Director (freelance)
London, United Kingdom
In a career spanning over fifteen years I’ve creatively led the production of high quality content and media, for a broad range of international clients. Across large-scale campaigns I lead all moving image related production, from concept through to completion, or on smaller scale projects I direct individual films, animations, or related digital media. I like to think outside the box, and ensure a distinctive flair & style is evident in all the work I create. 
My career has evolved into an integrated, media neutral approach. Allowing me to engage with the latest innovations without losing sight of my core vision and passion – storytelling, filmmaking, or creating experiences that engage and resonate with audiences.

Currently London-based but working internationally, I’m confident, amiable and highly organised. I’m comfortable working within a team, autonomously, or leading and managing. My main aims are always to ensure that work is produced on time, within budget and to a high creative standard.
