DAVA FILM

about

Something about me. 

First of all, I love to shoot stories.  

For me It’s all about getting the wright frame, the right light and theright feeling that the story needs. 
A good story has to have te right framing. It’s great to create a story through the lens.

After studies at the graphic school of Art (Eindhoven) and the filmacademy (Brussels) I start working for television. The focus, timespeed and dealing with unforseen situations is something I love and this expertise is very useful for both drama and television productions.

Also the adventure of getting on the road, see a lot of different people and travelling all over the world is a great feature of working as a DOP/cameraman. It’s great to discover all the beauty around us…. 

And with these famous words of Dr. Emmet L. Brown I quote:

Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need… roads!
