In 2006, he graduated with his film Krejča behind the Gate/Krejča za branou, a portrait of stage director Otomar Krejča. He is the producer of Robert Sedláček's feature debut Rules of Lies/Pravidla lži (2006) which received, among others, the Czech Critics Award and the Czech Lion Award for the Best Screenplay. He is the co-author of Sedláček's feature-length documentary trilogy Once upon a Time/Tenkrát (1999 – 2002) dealing with Czech recent history. He also produced Karel Vachek's latest documentary film Záviš - The Prince of Porn-Folk Under The Influence of Griffith's Intolerance and Monsieur Hulot's Holiday by Tati or: The Rise and Fall of Czechoslovakia, 1918 - 1992/ Záviš, kníže pornofolku pod vlivem Griffithovy Intolerance a Tatiho Prázdnin pana Hulota aneb Vznik a zánik Československa, 1918 – 1992 (2006). He is also the producer of Vachek's upcoming documentary Obscurantist and His Lineage/Tmář a jeho rod and is in charge of the DVD release of Vachek's complete filmography. In 2007, he made a film diorama Paper Attempt/Papírový atentát, an analysis of the transformation and subtexts of the Czech political scene after the “Sarajevo attempt” of Václav Klaus in 1997. Currently, he is working on the script for a docudrama (a feature film following real events) about the controversial minister Jiří Čunek.
