About me

During my study I discovered that I really enjoy working in the art departement.

I learned a lot from the proces of buying props, building the film sets and matching the decors with the back story of the characters.  But what I liked even more was being there on set working as a set dresser with the whole crew around you and making last minute choices in the look of what the camera is pointing at.

Besides working at the Art Department I'm writing a lot so hopefully soon I can be the director of my own project again.

As a filmmaker myself I hope to arouse curiosity, make you doubt, laugh and confuse.

Leave enough room for own interpretations. 

And the way I tell my story is mainly in the whole design concept and less in the literalness of the underlying thoughts.

Investigate large-scale themes through small-scale everyday struggles. 

Since everyone is 'just human' this involves the necessary daily struggles, particularities and inconveniences. 

I like to give the raw realisme a absurdist twist.
