We are delighted to welcome our newest team member – Dawid Poniatowski!
We sat down with Dawid to find out more about the newest member of our team!
So Dawid, Tell us a little bit about yourself!
Hi! My name is Dawid Poniatowski and I am a Polish Cinematographer/Editor. During my years of studying film in Australia, I have worked in the world of freelancing. Through the years I had the opportunity to work on some big-name projects, travel for work as well as meet some incredible people, which allowed me to gain some memories and experiences which I will never forget! I am absolutely ecstatic to begin this new/exciting new journey working at Eon Visual Media and I hope to gain more experience, make new fun memories as well as meet some more awesome people!
After having the first initial conversation with me you will quickly learn that I am a huge tech/movie/music/cooking nerd. I love getting out of the house, going on long walks, and listening to live music. I am an old soul who loves his red wine, healthy but good food! And “slightly” obsessed with the 1960s. Anything from music to fashion to style makes me want to go back in time. I am also a cat dad! Dogs are cool and all, but cats are magnificent creatures that were put on earth for us to love them.
What do you like to get up to outside the workplace?
Any chance I get, I love to invite friends over and cook for everyone!
Music is something I cannot live without! In my free time you will always see me either with earphones in my own world or sitting at my computer chilling to some oldies (but goodies!)
I also love to go exploring small villages around our local area with my friend. I always bring my camera as you never know when you might get that one in a million snap! Wherever I go my camera goes.
What three words would you use to describe yourself?
Weird, funny, Dad jokes
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
Definitely my iced cappuccino and the excitement of a new project! As of recently, also my cat being too needy early in the morning!
What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever seen?
The view of Hong Kong all lit up at night with the moonlight piercing through the clouds.
What’s the strangest thing in your refrigerator?
Some people don’t agree with me putting ketchup in the refrigerator, I like my sauce cold on a hot pizza!
What’s your favourite movie?
Do not have one favourite one, it’s like asking which is your favourite child. But I really enjoyed Interstellar (I’m a space geek!)
What’s your favourite pizza topping?
Cheese! Cheese and more Cheese! initially, a Margarita if done properly. It’s all about the dough!
When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried?
When my friend fell into a pile of mud as we walked home through a field at night. Very mean but funny!
What are you most looking forward to post-lockdown?
Traveling! One thing I definitely miss is seeing other countries, meeting different cultures, and trying new food. It helps to expand my mind!
What is your motto or personal mantra?
Live today as if it’s the last and always find a way to talk to a human, no matter their background show respect and you’ll gain their respect!
What is on your wish list for over the next three years?
I want to be able to help to shoot/organize and manage some bigger projects, help the company and help new employees grow and progress wherever possible. Expand and add more to my equipment library. I would also love to travel abroad for shoots and represent the company as the Covid restrictions start to ease off.
As you can see, we are delighted to have Dawid on board with our team!
