His parents running a campsite there, DAAN lived a year in France. After moving back to the Netherlands, he got into skateboarding. And in retrospect one can say that’s where it all started. Working his ass off at a garden centre, he could buy his first camera at the 13 and began to make skateboarding films straight away. Plants on the other hand, he didn’t touch anymore ever since graduating from the Netherlands Film Academy in 2016. He doesn’t want to get his hands dirty again, you see. Even the one single plant he has at home, a bonsai, needs to be taken care of by his girlfriend. What he does love however, is making films which surprise.
