About Richard

Richard de Maaré was born in Schoorl, North Holland, Netherlands 1972. At a young age he already knew what he wanted to do: act and sing. But in the early 80's it all seemed like a far away dream.

Although music and theatre was part of his roots (his grandfather worked at the theatre 'Stadsschouwburg Utrecht' and his great-grandfather as a orchestra music director at the 'Philharmonisch orchestra Rotterdam') Richard was stimulated to learn a 'real' profession, and so he turned his other hobby into a job: he became a car mechanic. But before finishing his education he dropped out. He did his military service and had many different jobs afterwards, ranging from café, business to fashion.

Acting kept attracting and he decided to follow his heart. From 1995 he followed various acting educations, workshops and master classes. He became a freelance actor and gained a broad experience in many different acting jobs. He also gained experience behind the camera, doing grip, camera-assistance, lighting, directing and producing.

Richard is founder and owner of a platform which create a bridge between actors and directors,

  • Carnivore

    Carnivore (2012)
    Film (Short and Crime) Actor The Heyl brothers are back with their familiar stylistic approach to filmmaking and their unique method of storytelling. Carnivore delves into the dark fantasy world of a fragile son fearful of his father. With epic slowmotion shots, stylish pans and larger than life characters they once again prove that the time has come for bigger, more ambitious projects in The Netherlands. Carnivore starts off in a small contemporary waiting room. The young son has injured his arm, but his father threatens not to tell the truth behind the incident. When the child starts drawing, he envisions a twisted recount of the affaires and we see the events unfold through a childlike distortion. Carnivore covers violence, vegetarianism, cannibalism and fear of authority through the eyes of a child. Exaggerated, hyperbolic, dreamlike and definitely unique. Carnivore is the one short you do not want to miss. Written by Justin Heyl
