My Work

Corporate movies were the one-time core business of my company Carillon, which itself originated from the film department of the Royal Dutch Airlines in 1948. (Here's a link in case you're interested in some vintage footage).


I've done corporate films for oil companies, (NAM, Shell, Aramco), energy companies (ENW, Tennet, EZH, Gasunie), banks and accountancy firms (NautaDutilh, Ernst & Young), large multinationals (AKZO, HBG, Pakhoed, Philips, Danone, Heineken, Rotterdam Port) and for numerous smaller enterprises.

Some of those were directed at general audiences, others for internal communication, motivational or educational.

For the Dutch company NAM (A Shell and Esso company) we produced the first Dutch IMAX Dome® film "Picture Holland". After watching hour and hours of Imax films in various festivals to find out the do's and don't's we produced what I still think is one of the best IMAX shorts ever.

Some other corporate productions also edged on entertainment, such as the ride movies for Mannesmann Rexroth and the Heineken Experience, and 3D movies such as for Gasunie.


National and local government agencies have asked my company to produce films to inform or entertain a broad audience or both. Some memorable productions were venues for World Exhibits like the Floriade 1992 and 2002. I developed Aart's Paradise (Paradise on Earth), a large pavilion with a fully automated show that drew well over half a million viewers within half a year.

A 3D experience, produced for several ministries also drew large crowds at the World Flower Exhibit as did Wonderwaterland, an experience pavilion for Dutch national water management, for which I also did the 3D animation sequences..

Governmental commissions also came for conference and congress openers. "Troubled Water" was produced for an international ICID conference. It was a huge success beyond the conference itself, as it was translated into eight languages, and played for years on HBO. It got the Grand Award at the New York festivals for the best Non-Broadcast production.

A recent production commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs was "4 all of Us", for the World Gas Conference, which portrayed people working in the international energy business from Iran and Saudi Arabia to Norway. For most of these congress openers we also developed full 'curtain raiser' experiences, with live music and visual effects.

Another production that stands out was a documentary about the Dutch Queen's role in the Netherlands' democracy: "Signature". Intended for an international audience, it nevertheless played for years on Dutch national tv.

We've also produced governmental films on international trade, on innovative infrastructure, on IT.

For the non-governmntal organization NOVIB/Oxfam I wrote and directed the 360 degrees travelling exhibit "Into Africa" about the economic role of African women.


Museums, visitor centers and theme parks are wonderful clients. They draw large audiences for long periods.

In a lot of cases my videos are used to add background context to the museum's exhibits (Wereldmuseum Rotterdam). And sometimes the production turns into a venue by itself with 3D exhibits, multi channel sound, robotics and light shows. (Marinemuseum, Natuurmuseum Fryslan, Natuurmuseum Brabant, Gemeentemuseum Harlingen)

Jaded audiences demand ever more unique experiences. And that's where the fun comes in at developing new approaches to audio visual techniques.

Stereo 3D, holographics, Pepper's Ghosts (Heineken) and ride movies. Or all combined as in Holland Experience 3D. And exciting shows such as Madhouses for Six Flags and a Dark Ride in Mexico City. (La Llorona).

Some productions were years in the making. Others just a few days. Some had near impossible deadlines to meet. So far I'm proud to say that they all worked out.
If you come up with a new challenge that involves using sound, vision and any other imaginable medium to create a new experience, I'm ready to meet it.
