About Pavel

Bio

Working in media since 1994. I am now involved with translations and directing of dubbing for a nation-wide television channel. I care a lot about language and precise interpreting (rather than translating) and participate in non-profit projects like a pronunciation dictionary (forvo.com) or the Czech language educational project (czechprimer.org). I also collaborate with the information society magazine ikaros.cz and a number of media organizations.

I graduated from new Media Studies at the Faculty of Arts of the Charles University in Prague. My undergraduate field is Media Studies. I am interested in Information and Interactive design, public transit systems and communication in public spaces. My other interests involve photography, architecture and things technical and industrial.

I work on a documentary film on an American marine artist, printmaker and a structuralist, Donald Stoltenberg (stoltenberg.info).
