Filmmaker & Visual storyteller

Documentary - Project film - Corporate - Explanation video & animation - Social video

As a Dutch filmmaker and visual storyteller with over 14 years of experience in producing documentaries, corporate films and other visual explanatory products for many Ghanaian and International clients. I am located in Accra and have been producing films in West Africa with a team of Ghanaian film making experts for the past 10 years. With my team I produce , highly professional content of International quality. Therefor there is no more need to fly in an expensive crew from abroad.

Award winning documentary films

As a documentary film maker I produce self funded film projects that are shown at Film Festivals all over the world, or aired on National and International Television. One example is the documentary 'the Cure', it won the Best Film Award in the Toronto Short Film Festival and was selected for screening at the Rome Independent Prisma Awards.

Cocoa farmers in Ghana

Do you know where your chocolate comes from and what the life of a cocoa farmer is like? That's what the Dutch TV program 'Achter de schermen van de chocolade fabriek' or in English 'Behind the scenes of the chocolate factory' wants to show the Dutch chocolate consumer. 
For Riga TV I made four reportages and several interviews on the topics: income of a farmer, child labour, deforestation and women in cocoa. Broadcasted on RTLZ in November and December 2020. 
A very special project, giving a spotlight to those who need it the most. Click the below links to watch the full episodes.
