Wouter studied political science and graphic design at the notorious Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, all the while failing to make it as a rock star. The closest he got to a hedonistic life in the music biz though was directing promos. And after some amazing experiences doing this, he realized nothing beats being a director.
He launched his commercial career at CZAR and continued at BONKERS United. His work evolved into visual strong films with lots of humanity and more than a nod to his conceptual background. He loves technique and emotion.
Wouter still passionately directs commercials and music videos, but also started working on short films and longer formats. Rock’n’roll still courses through his veins though as seen in the promo for De Staat – Kitty Kitty, who won an UKMVA award for ‘best international rock video’.
