When studying Audiovisual Media – Directing, at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Utrecht I discovered my passion for telling stories. In my work I find it extremely important to show a realistic representation of reality through story-telling. My work is pure, taken from real-life, but with a cinematic touch. Through powerful and independent female protagonists I intentionally tell stories from a feminine perspective.
Unconsciously I also work with a lot of women on the set which creates a familiar and open atmosphere. A working atmosphere in which I feel at ease as a creator. I always spend a lot of time on the casting set, looking for someone who strongly resembles the main character. Through long rehearsal periods I try to focus on similarities, we talk a lot and bring up situations from the actors’ own lives, in order to create the richest possible character.
