Not unlike many other filmmakers I started out making short films with my friends (and Lego’s) when I was a kid. At the age of fifteen I landed my first job at a media company after I won a competition. From that moment on I started to develop my skills, buy professional equipment and eventually build a company. I graduated with my first thirty minute short film Anathema after a successful crowdfunding campaign. My goal is to achieve a unique style by combining different kinds of visual and cultural art. Personally, I value honesty, trustworthiness and perseverance.

WHAT THEY SAID
Superb. Only 35mm and a better score would have made this (Anathema) any more authentically cinema for me. I wish I had your skills.
Ids Aalbers wrote, directed, operated the camera, did the post-production and singlehandedly delivered a fitting soundtrack. Technically, this post-apocalyptic Purgatory is outstanding; hopefully his next film will really be Heavenly.
What do you need?
I primarily shoot on a dedicated 4K digital cinema-camera with Zeiss lenses, to ensure the highest possible image quality with a nice filmic character. Be sure to check out my latest work!
For the past 13 years I've directed films, studied visual storytelling, read up on the latest technology and worked out new ideas to create and visualise my films. Being able to think in images doesn't hurt either.
Supported by my network of fellow creative professionals I'm able to produce many kinds of films from start (concept) to finish (film). Contact me with your ideas and I'll help you work out a solid plan.
I have the necessary means to add the finishing touches to your film project. This includes offline/online editing, audio mixing, music, color grading and post-production for social media, national television and cinema.
