About me
Hi! I make films and videos independently and for clients.
    This documentary (56') sets out on a creative exploration of science in Ghana resulting in an audio-visual collage reflecting ambition and uncoventional skill. Developing yourself is the only option. Low tech the future. Ghana is the pilot country for MULTIVERSE the series (in development).

  • Inspirations
    Promotional mini doc for Winter in Holland - a textile design company. We are taken into the mindspace of designer Anouk to hear about her inspirations for the second collection.
  • Winter In Holland
    I generate videos for textile design brand WINTER IN HOLLAND. The first short reflects her process running the fashion brand as a start-up. The second short meditates on 'inspiration' when designing the latest collection. They are displayed on her website to generate a personal connection with her customers; they see how the products are made and know where they come from.
  • Rising CO2: No sweat!
    This is a science video I created about how plants respond very directly to their environment. This is important to keep in mind if you want to know more about the implications of rising CO2 on our planet. In a lab in Utrecht a researcher recreates both past, present and future to study this. It ranges from the past Glacial to the year 2100.
