I am an editor/cameraman/director/producer/technical writer and started out in the camera shop of my father as a gofer. Eventually I learned to take photographs and to crop and print. With a borrowed Kodak Brownie ( 8 mm film camera) from my father's shop, a friend and I started making films. We wrote scripts so I could kiss the most beautiful girl in school who was invited to play the female lead. She accepted the role.
7 years later I graduated from the national broadcasters Media College and became a much asked for film editor. After 5 years I became a freelancer. For over 15 years I worked for all current affairs and sport programs on Dutch TV. Parallel to being an editor I became a cameraman too, both in video and film and I shot hundreds of sports video clips gradualy moving into producing industrial and institutional films world wide. In 1990 I was headhunted by Avid Technology Inc. to become one of their technical evangelists to promote non linear editing (virtual editing) which was just invented. Since 2003 I am freelance again. As a technical writer I currently watch the development of the large sensor cameras that get to the market. You are never to old to find new and better ways to work, is one of my credo's.
Research has learned that the video documentary (journalistic approach) is a good way to get a marketing message across.
This approach is what I do best. I like to shoot with large sensor camera's that give you a different look reffered to as Hollywood style opposed to the traditional video look. I am fully aware that it is not the tools I work with that brings me success but my ideas and my approach to the client and the story he wants.
I produce industrial as wel as sport related subjects
