I am Daan, film director and audio visual designer. I create commercials, short films and content for online media. Have a look at my portfolio. If you have any questions or want to know about my availability, don’t hesitate to contact me.

I direct commercials with the same passion as I direct my own short films. I’ll make your story my own and find the most effective way to tell it.

Maybe you know exactly what you want. You need a lean and pragmatic approach with an eye for detail to perfectly execute your concept.

Sometimes a story begs to be told as it is, sometimes it needs smart visual effects. I love to make the technically challenging into a visual reality. Be it through special effects and state of the art post production or clever and simple solutions.

Maybe a concept needs more love and attention. I will help you with the visual ideas and choices that allow your concept to grow into the film that tells your story the way you want it to be told.

After art school I landed my first job with renowned commercial director Thed Lenssen. A four year crash course in directing commercials. Since 2004 I was co-founder of commercial production company bäst. Together with my partners Menno Koop and Diederik Spaargaren I’ve worked for over ten years for many (inter)national clients like Dutch Railways, ABN Amro, Appelsientje, Grolsch, Heineken, VWS, Gamma, ING, Plus, Quaker and many others.

My work has won numerous awards: Gouden Effie, Zilveren Lamp ADCN cat: Commercials, Epica Gold, Eurobest Finalist, New York Festivals - Silver WorldMedal, Promo Lion and more.
