Originally from Belgium, I was raised in French by an civil engineer and architect father and an art historian mother. I guess that’s how my fascination for art in general, both old and new, started. It was only natural that I decided pretty early on to study civil engineering and architecture. I loved the idea of balancing the beauty of an intricate design with the steadiness asked of an engineer. However, I soon realised that I love to use that in service of a story. As films had always been my favourite form of storytelling, I then went on to study Production Design, the film equivalent of architecture.
Now in my fourth year at The Netherlands Film Academy in Amsterdam, I’ll be graduating soon. I’ve just finished filming my graduation film, which will be released in June, 2019 at the Eye Film Festival. Last summer I did an internship at 87seconds, in Brussels, where I learned the excitement that comes with making creative content in super short films (hence the name) with rich storytelling and visuals.
As those who know me would tell you, my strength resides most prominently in research. I’m like a dog with a bone. No matter what it is you’re looking for: locations, specific props, informations about how people used to live, ideas about how people might live in the future. I’ll search and find it for you.
