Driven by my endless curiosity for knowledge, ideas and compelling, authentic stories, my strength lies in capturing those stories and ideas, translate them into a film concept and bringing them to the screen.

Although I loved studying film and got my Masters degree Film Studies at the UvA, I really missed the creativity and fulfillment of actually making film; being able to tell a story, putting something into the world for others to enjoy or learn from. That’s when I bought my first film camera and started filming. I fell in love and never stopped.

Meanwhile, I have more than 10 years of experience as a cameraman and director, traveling the world, shooting documentaries and working with a wide variety of brands, clients and agencies to translate their stories to the screen. During these trips I met a lot of beautiful people, some of whom even became friends. Coming together and sharing stories is what people do since the dawn of time… and I’m all for it.

Sincerely,

Jelmar
