    About me

    Belgium, November 1977. On an overcast Sunday afternoon a nine year old boy proclaims his boredom. His mother suggests he'd go to the movies, by himself, for the very first time. Check this coupon from the newspaper she said: first hundred ticket holders receive free action figure. As such the choice was made: a toy for the price of a ticket. The movie in question now of secondary importance was Star Wars, A New Hope. Took my seat, without any notion whatsoever. Paradigm shift -- A journey of unbound wonder ensued, pulling me into a universe governed by myth and magic. Overwhelmingly convincing and fully engaging. What could bring about such elaborate illusions and tantalise this young mind to the brink of sanity? A force to behold. So my fate was set. The art and science of movie magic. To uncover its secrets and to inspire in turn.

    Additional Information

    I started experimenting with film at age 12 and went on to become an amateur filmmaker. Landed my first job shooting and editing for a Belgian production company at age 16 before entering photography school. Moved to the US for additional film studies at UCLA, followed by 16 years of freelancing in the Hollywood film circuit working mostly as a shooting cameraman (features) and director/cameraman (music videos & commercials). Relocated to Belgium in 2007 to start a production company which I'm running to this day. Been at it for 34 years and kinda getting the hang of it ;)
