My name is Marek Frankiewicz. I am an engineer, many years occupied with marketing, but only when I founded Kaktus.studio I realized, that I finally do what I love! I have started meeting new people, visiting interesting places and researching previously unknown subjects. Simultaneously I was accompanied by the constant drive for self development, achieved first by film school classes and later by many workshops, which resulted, among other things, in obtaining a DaVinci Resolve Certified Trainer title. I have also learned a lot from my own experience, gathered during a number of accomplished projects. However, I realize that only constant searching for inspiration and knowledge may help me realize more and more ambitious plans! And so day by day, either with a camera or a drone controller in hands, alone or with my crew, on set, during live stream or training, I am always trying to evoke positive emotions by customers and viewers. Kaktus.studio means for me passion and adventure, openness for new projects and finally joy after each positive feedback!

OFFER

In the offer there are film productions, live streams, DaVinci Resolve trainigs and drone services. More details, including a list of owned gear and portfolio you can find on the following pages.

POSTPRODUCTION STUDIO

Although the footage is recorded externally, the postproduction process is fully conducted in an own studio. And there, except the necessary knowledge and experience of course, the proper hardware and software are also required to reach the aimed goals. So, the PC with the high processing capacity is a must. Another very important element is, or rather are monitors. I work on three BenQ models – the main one is SW271, offering 27” 4K display with 99% coverage of the Adobe RGB gamut and hardware calibration. During work with video files it is connected via Blackmagic Design DeckLink Mini Monitor 4K card and calibrated as a reference monitor for full size view. The second one is PD2700U, also with 27” 4K display and 100% coverage of SRGB gamut, and finally the third one is PD2500Q, 25” 2K with 100% coverage of SRGB. All are calibrated with X-Rite i1Display Pro on a regular basis, securing full control over view during work, and no unexpected surprises after. Another piece of gear are Presonus Eris 4.5 monitors, accurate speakers designed for audio postproduction. Finally I also use graphic tablet Wacom Intuos Pro M, Loupedeck Live console and Blackmagic Design Mico Panel, which significantly improve my efficiency.

In terms of the software I relay on absolutely fantastic DaVinci Resolve Studio from Blackmagic Design. It is worth to mention, that meny Oscar prize winners were at least color graded within it. Many workshops and gathered own experience let my initially pass the exams and obtain certificates of Certified End User in versions 15 & 16, and then Certified Trainer in version 17 (Introduction to DaVinci Resolve, Color Grading and Fusion Effects).

Finally I have a optical fibre internet connection, so fast sending and receiving of huge files is not a problem.

DATA SECURITY

They say, that the world is devided between these, who already take care of the data backup, and these, who certainly will. How does it look by Kaktus.studio? The cameras I use enable recording on two high quality cards simultainuosly, so this stage seems to be reasonably covered. Then the files are copied to the local PC disc, as well as on Synology DS920+ file server, which offers a number of security functions, including snaphots replication and cloud synchronization. Your files will really be safe!

WHY IT IS WORTH TO CHOOSE KAKTUS.STUDIO?

“…All run profesionally, on time and for reasonable price. Highly recommend it!”

This is the quote from the opinion shared by one of the customers, which is for me very satisfying, as it fully meets my goals as a service provider. The level of professionalism driven by own ambitions I am trying to increase by another trainigs and gear investments. The reliability and responsibility by any serious company shall always be taken for granted. And finally the money? Whenever I can, I work alone, when necessary, I take the crew, each project has individual approach. Sounds reasonable?

I kindly encourage you the learn other opinions on facebook and google. Within the satisfied customers group there are among the others MAN Trucks, Krakowska Szkoła Biznesu UEK, Krakowskie Centrum Innowacyjnych Technologii INNOAGH, Your Roots in Poland or the owner of Beautyshop.pl brand. So, look through blogposts, check social media, but most of all I kindly envite you to contact and cooperate with Kaktus.studio!
