Diede is an editor. You can tell. But that wasn’t always the case… Once he thought he was a director.

The thing I enjoy the most in editing is the many directions it can take you. I like to search of the heart of a story, reshaping and redefining it, and finally perfecting the edit. Creativity to me, is the power to surprise yourself and your audience. Rather that may be in a fictional film, documentary, installations or any other format.
Lately I worked on installations and projections for museums like Naturalis, Fries Museum, Tropenmuseum and Rijksmuseum Boerhaave. In the commercial space it seems that I really like beverages. I worked for Heineken, Fanta, Sol, Stongbow, Nada Juice, Desperados. I could go for a burger now.
