Martin’s first video clips and short films arise in 2005, when he starts to dedicate his life to filming.
„I created the first video only for my friends only. It was carefree period of my life in high school. I have been watching music videos of my favorite bands over and over again, so I wanted to create something similar by myself. I started with camera borrowed from my parents on which they mostly filmed our holidays,“ recalls his beginnings Martin.
