    A graduate from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Dorota Kobiela was awarded the Minister of Culture Scholarship for special achievements in painting and graphics for four consecutive years. Thanks to some friends, she discovered animation and film, and later majored in Directing at the Warsaw Film School. Her film "Little Postman" was the world's first stereoscopic painting animation film and was named Best Short Film at the LA 3D Film Festival.

His graduation film, "Crow Stone", won the Cinefoundation Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, and he was awarded the Sam Mendes Shakespeare Prize. In 2008, he was awarded an Oscar for BreakThru's first major production, Suzie Templeton's "Peter and the Wolf", which won many other top prizes such as the Cristal and Audience Award at Annecy 2007.
