As writer-director-to-be, I’m a storyteller who didn’t want to choose between visuals and text. I studied 2D animation at the University of the Arts Utrecht and took a minor in creative writing at Fontys University of Journalism. In 2020 I graduated together with Thirza van der Zee with our film Tidy Town, which I directed, wrote, and produced. I brought together a team of eighteen people for this. Tidy Town has been screened at various festivals such as the Netherlands Film Festival and the Giffonni Film Festival in Italy. Tidy Town was nominated for best animation at Cinekid (2020) and Shortcutz (2021) and won the Noorderkroon award for best student film at the Noordelijk Film Festival. My new film concept Pupatinea was selected in 2020 for the Netherlands Film Festival talent days and script & score. I like to explore realistic themes such as the conflict between the self and the mind by using atmosphere and symbolism and by placing these themes in surreal fantasy worlds.
I would love to hear from you if you!
