Around 1999 i started filming with an hi8 camera and mostly filming my friends skateboarding and life in the city. Being a cameraman is an advantage for my editing and directing , actually learn all the crafts as much as u can!
I started editing my material and learned from dynamic visual non-linear editing to create continuity with shots and keep a viewer more and more engaged.
Later on i started to shoot and cut in events to create narrative and tell stories.
Making mistakes it became clear to me that writing a proper script is the very beginning of your Film.
Doing a couple of documentary style shorts on subjects such as sneakers , art expo.s and road movies i started working on my first fiction Film with friends acting and helping producing.
The Farm my first Film took me 3 years to complete. https://vimeo.com/96680174
Living in the Netherlands is a great opportunity to shoot guerilla style no-budget Films.
The French new wave movement gave me great inspiration and the way Films can be made with no budget. The internet is a great opportunity to distribute and broadcast your Films.
I am looking forward to work with a trustworthy production company in the near future.
