As a Dutch filmmaker I love to be on the road to collect stories and bring them home as film. My portfolio consists of documentaries, expositions and installations for television, museums, cinema and (online) media. 20 years of experience and (knowledge of) all the gear needed to make stunning 4K(+) films.
