Completed: ‘Disconnected’

During times when people are forced to ‘disconnect’ themselves from the outer world, Nard van Vrijaldenhoven asked me to score his latest short film ‘Disconnected’. An uttermost coincidental timing, whereas Nard’s original idea dates back to 2018. In this short drama film, you’ll get to know two young men living in two completely different worlds. As they both end up fighting themselves, they seem to have more in common than meets the eye.

It has been a true pleasure to be a part of this film and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the result. As the film is currently in the running for several major film festivals, you’ll have to be a little more patient before it hits the screens. If you don’t want to miss its official release date, be sure to follow me on Facebook and Instagram!

First Feature Film

Earlier this year, Dutch feature film ‘The Big Slime Movie’ was premiered. During my internship at Fons Merkies, I was asked to compose additional music for several scenes. I also helped with arrangements and score design for the recordings. Filled with joy and gratitude, I’m happy to share that my first film credit is a fact.

‘The Big Slime Movie’ (in Dutch: ‘De Grote Slijmfilm’) is an adventurous family movie about Indy and Olivia; two best friends who’re crazy about making slime. Dominicus Duff, owning the biggest toy factory in the country, has a sinister plan to ban slime in order to increase his own toy sales. Indy and Olivia are determined to stop him, but it won’t be without a fight.
