Introducing the RADICALS15.10.2018
Papaya.Films is always on the lookout for new faces in the cinematic arts whose entry into the world of advertising always brings a breath of fresh air and a spirit of innovation. It is with great pleasure that we’d like to introduce the RADICALS, a group of young, promising directors and camera operators. Each member of the group has extensive experience working in film – aside from ads and short films, the RADICALS have been involved with producing music videos and visuals for live music performances. Our artists, however, transcend pure filmmaking – they’re simultaneously developing additional journalistic, editing, photographic, and animation skills. We believe that they will be the vanguard that will create the media of tomorrow.
A part of the RADICALS team is already busy working on new advertising content for Papaya.Rocks, mostly on PZU and Mastercard campaigns.
