Behind the blue door - an adventure beyond your wildest dreams. No other bestselling Polish childrens' book been adapted for the screen quite like Behind the Blue Door. Behind the Blue Door is the first Polish film to be made with such momentum and epic special effects and it is sure to appeal to the people of all ages. One of the main themes of the film is the great power of parental love.

Working on this movie was a great challenge and a wonderful experience that helped me shape my musical signature. I was working closely with the director and sound department on the otherworldly and dark fantasy sound of the music. The music was mixed in surround in the Dreamsound Studio in Warsaw by an experienced sound engineer Tadeusz Mieczkowski. The sound and the music was received very positively and the film itself gathered a lot of awards at international festivals.
