BEN is a minimalist. Therefore he doesn’t like to own stuff. Okay, he has camera stuff but that doesn’t count since he makes an exception for stuff he really needs and camera stuff of course you really need being a DP. Talking about needs, would one for a new building arise, Ben could actually build it. As he is very handy with computers, camera’s and other technical devices. But making films, he began his career with filming snowboard movies when he lived in Austria, is still his absolute favourite. It even comes before pizza, which means a lot considering he thinks of pizza as life. Dark, moody and open to everyone’s personal interpretation is how he likes them best. Making films that is. Cause for pizza it would be Margaritha, just simple no adds on it please.

&COR BOOY · CINEMATOGRAPHER
COR is someone who is basically capable of everything. Like building mini fun fairs with real merry-go-rounds, haunted houses and cable cars in his backyard, as he used to do when small. Or play tunes for his friends in their mobile hang out. Even figure skating does not have any secrets for him, since he almost – no kidding! – became a professional in it at the age of 13. (Ask him to show you if you want proof.) Still, film making is what he likes to do best. After an education in which he learned everything about television, he realized he wanted to add more story telling to his cinematography. That’s why he did an internship with director Dick Maas and went to the Netherlands Film Academy. Graduating in 2017, now it’s his goal to make films that have some kind of social aspect to them and as such help to create a better world. But let’s not get too serious. Cause making people to forget daily life, if only for a moment, is something he just as much loves to achieve.

&VICTOR HORSTINK · CINEMATOGRAPHER
VICTOR was actually more of a musician, always playing in bands, before he enrolled at the Netherlands Film Academy. Still, next thing he knew, he graduated twice. First in 2006, in sound. But after working several years as a sound technician, the camera started to draw his interest. So in 2018 he graduated again, this time as a cinematographer. What he would love to make are art house films, although a genre film he also wouldn’t mind at all. Born and raised in Amsterdam, it took his girlfriend to show him the local restaurants which serve healthy and freshly made food. Cause, even though he is a, let’s say, 95% vegetarian, ask him for his favourite dish and he will still say hamburger. He holds himself in check, keeping up being veg, but otherwise he would eat the damn things every day.
