From 2008 till today I’ve been working as a director and editor within the TV industry. Mostly working as a promo director for tv shows on all Dutch TV channels and as a director for more commercial/corporate projects within my own production company VLA Films. Next to that I like to direct more unique projects like short films, documentaries and music videos.
As a director I always try to create something that grabs you by the balls and doesn’t let go. It doesn’t matter in which genre, I like to make something different. In the whole process I’m a teamplayer and I rely on the professionalism of the people I work with. I believe that by motivating their spirits you will get the best results.
