Reinhout Nechelput (°1978) started his career producing a number of high end music videos, and non scripted entertainment shows. Since 2008 Reinhout is mainly active in drama. First as production manager and later as head of production, he produced children series & films for Studio 100, such as The House of Anubis (remakes in US & Germany), Mega Mindy, Amika,…
Later Reinhout became a freelance line producer for feature films “Kampioen zijn blijft plezant” (director Eric Wirix, 765K visitors, n°5 alltime box office in Belgium), “Violet” (director Bas Devos, DOP Nicolas Karakatsanis, award Generation 14plus in Berlin 2014, award sound design Film Fest Ghent 2014), for series for the Belgian public broadcaster VRT with “Voor wat, Hoort wat” (director Christophe Van Rompaey). He has been consulting for award-winning series “Bevergem” of director Gilles Coulier, and feature film “King of the Belgians” by Peter Brosens & Jessica Woodworth.
From 2015 to 2018, Reinhout has been producer of the Flemish continuous drama “Familie”. Via change & innovation management, a new shooting schedule & internal structure, investments in quality control & creative departments, online & second screen efforts, this production got a major boost during season 26 & 27.
During the summer of 2018, Reinhout started his own production company Kapitein Rein. He is currently developing 3 drama series and 1 documentary.
Kapitein Rein wants to develop high quality drama and documentaries that travel around Europe, next to smaller projects for the local (Flemish) market. We are currently developing 3 drama series: 1 historical drama (6 eps of 50 minutes), 1 midweek drama, and 1 coma (comedy-drama) series (13 eps of 30 minutes), and 1 documentary.
Next to the development of those productions I am Senior Consultant for www.dzjintonik.eu, an online production management tool. I am responsible for their international sales and implementation.
