In the first months of 2014 we have been working on building a recording room specially dedicated to recording foley. The new foley studio is the most complete foley studio in the Netherlands with different surfaces, dirtpits and an enormous amount of props. We already finished the recordings for the Greek movie ‘A Blast’ and the Dutch movie ‘Gooische Vrouwen 2’ and the new foley sounds great! Check out our foley page for more info.
The Dutch feature film ‘Afscheid van de Maan’ (Farewell to the Moon) by director Dick Tuinder is nominated for a Hivos Tiger Award at the Internation Film Festival Rotterdam 2014. I did the foley for this incredible movie that also will have it’s premiere at the festival. For more info see the website

We just finished the sound design for the tv movie Scooterdagen by director Leonie de Boer. The movie will be screened at the Dutch Film Festival 2013 (NFF) and is selected for the Debut Competition of the festival. Scooterdagen will air later this year on Dutch television and is one of the One Night Stands movies made in 2013. We did the audio post production, sound design and premix in 5.1. surround.
In the new Volkswagen commercial a dog thinks he’s a car. A great challenge for a sound designer: how do you make a dog sound like a car? I worked on the sound design for this commercial and designed the last sound: the car alarm! You can check it out: here
I just finished the 5.1. surround mix for the documentary My Amityville Horror, by Los Angeles based director Eric Walter. The documentary was a great success at the BFI London Film Festival which made it financially possible to redo the mix in 5.1. surround at the mixing stage at Cinemeta.
During the upcoming Dutch Film Festival (NFF) there are 7 productions I’ve worked on as a foley artist or sound designer. One of those productions, the documentary Stuff Everywhere, is nominated for the award for Best Debut Director. The feature film Bellicher Cel will have it’s official premiere at the festival.
I just finished the foley for the Dutch feature film ‘Alleen maar nette mensen’ at Studio Vermaas. The movie is a film adaptation of the book by Robert Vuijsje and will hit the cinemas in October 2012. Watch the trailer
