As a dancer myself, I find capturing the human body in motion a natural relationship. The nature of real-time live performance in the ever-changing environment of moving bodies and light changes has forced me to develop an instinctual approach behind the camera as well as fast problem solving skills. Over the past years I have been researching the very relationship between the moving body and the camera operator. I researched ways in which particular movement can/should be captured to enable the viewer behind the lens to experience the feeling of immersing with the dancers and/or performance. I continue to search for new approached and I suspect that it will be an on-going investigation.
Me and the Gimbal. Capturing moving bodies has introduced me to the handheld Gimbal stabilisers such as DJI Ronin, an obvious choice to enable smooth filming, but I have found that my background as a dancer has given me skills to operate a gimbal well. I have been nicknamed 'the dancing cameraman'.
Over the past decade I have freelanced as a digital content creator for performances, theatres, installations and exhibitions within the rich cultural sector in Belgium and beyond. I create engaging trailers, performance captures for distribution, collaborating with artist in multi-disciplined creations and all post production services.
