About you

May be you like to hire me …

Are you in need of a professional for camerawork and/or editing? Do you share my love for intimate, delicate stories captured beautifully? I might be able to help. What I need is your unyielding heartbeat for the assignment too. I will help you liberate the story and translate that into a lucid, well thought out film. My attitude in life and thus in filming is that if I can imagine it, I am going to be able to do it. Even if that means going to places I haven’t been before. In this respect my heartbeat is a strong sign of my involvement.

Before you say yes: WAIT

Sometimes doing business is similar to dating. So this is where I stand: I will truly tell you if I feel a sparkle for your project or not. If I feel hesitation I’m honouring that. And I suggest you do the same! Because before you say yes there might be a very good reason to say no. Even though creative work can be an unlimited source of joy, synergy and inspiration I learned over the years that we need to create certain conditions to ensure perfect outcomes. Quality is never a coincidence. Let me say that again: quality is never a coincidence. Succes is 90% preparation and this page is my way of taking responsibility for the quality of my work.

If you like to hire me, we could be a PERFECT fit for each other IF:

1) You are in need of a camerawoman who knows how to make professional film (or item) that tells a true story;
2) You like and trust me + you are familiar with my work;
3) You know what you need and you are able to communicate that concretely (or if you don’t know you are willing to surrender to my creativity and expertise);
4) You’ve clearly decided upfront about the amount of control you want over the outcome of the film (how many rounds of notes).

You and I will not be a fit IF:

1) We will not be a fit if you are unclear what you need from me;
2) We will not be a fit if you want to have a professional (= high quality) film for a ‘student price’.
3) And of course we will not be a fit if you are not ready to see yourself on film.
