An engaged documentary filmmaker looking for the personal story within the bigger picture.
Everyone has a story worth telling. Whether it is volunteering at a community centre or ideas revolving around restoring bio-diversity. Small stories that do something for the bigger picture intrigue me.
Some are characterized by a special history, others precisely by their vision for the future. Portraying these personal stories and placing them in a bigger picture is the most fun there is. This is what I do with film.
What can I do for you?
Production / Direction / Camera / Montage
As an all-round filmmaker, I am involved in the entire process. In consultation, I write a script and planning of the production. On set, I stand alone as camera journalist, director or operate a camera in a bigger crew. Afterwards, I then crawl behind my edit set to edit the film.
I am involved from the first letter on paper to the last line of the credits.
People I’ve worked with
Johan Kaspers Veluwe op 1
"The cooperation with Wijnand not only had a good result but was also very pleasant. We are very happy with the beautiful video he made for us."
Anke van Houten Unie van Waterschappen
"Wijnand understands almost immediately what the intention is, contributing exactly the right suggestions. The result is that complex technical material is conveyed clearly and appealingly. His way of filming is fresh and neat at the same time. Working with Wijnand is also an absolute pleasure on a personal level. Highly recommended!"
Matteo SalvaiEuropese Commissie (Road Trip Project)
"He showed a remarkable adaption capacity in a very demeaning setting of the project. His solid communication and interpersonal skills, his remarkable commitment to the project, and his outstanding sense for video storytelling proved essential for the succes of the road trip."
Geesje KramerDOCK (Dichtbij Op Afstand)
"Wijnand's strength as a filmmaker lies in bringing out the best in people through your present attitude and the way you connect with them. He does this by empathising well and asking the right questions that get to the heart of the matter. Wijnand allowed me to experience that the real story came to the surface and he gave me complete confidence that I was in good hands with you. This allowed me to be myself and tell my story."
Anne de ZeeuwNationale DenkTank
"Working with Wijnand was very relaxed and easy. He understood with few words what I wanted to achieve with the video. He is excellent at improvising, has a keen eye for detail and the people in front of the camera, clear language and delivers targeted work. Wijnand is the first person I would call if I needed a film again."
