About me
Hello I’m Pim, I am a gaffer/light technician and digital operator. I have over 8 years of on-set experience working on still and film productions. I love being on set and contributing to productions from start to finish. I see myself as creative, yet I am also a pragmatist with a wide range of organisation and technical skills across camera, light, and software systems. I would love to meet you and see how we can help each other!
