VERTIGO is an independent production and film service company founded by Rafael Lewandowski in 2007 and based in Warsaw. His team is flexible, creative and multilingual. It offers the possibility of cooperation and funding assistance in Poland from location scouting, casting, budgeting and production planning.

At the beginning of 2020, Rafael Lewandowski decided to give his company new life by joining forces with two experienced partners: production manager Małgorzata Brzeczkowska and former Canal Plus Polska general director Jakub Brzeczkowski. Their common goal is to develop co-production projects between two countries with which they are all particularly familiar: France and Poland.
