Nico burst on the commercial scene freshly graduated from the Netherlands Film Academy in 2014. His Polaroid commercial ‘Tableau Vivant’ has since done well at picking up accolades, amongst which a second prize Young Director Award in Cannes and a Silver Cube for Direction at the ADC 94th Annual Awards in Miami. Furthermore the film was shortlisted for the 2014 Porsche International Advertising Film Award and received finalist status at the New York Festivals International Advertising Awards. His Kit Kat spec commercial ‘Still Alive’ was shortlisted for the Young Director Award the previous year.
Before entering film school Nico studied film at the University of Amsterdam, making him a well-oriented and versatile director. Nico basically knows what he’s talking about. He has a preference for deadpan comedy with a sharp edge, doesn’t shy away from dark humor preferably executed in unique offbeat storytelling. His work shows great visual artistry and a keen eye for detail making him a great promise and we are proud to represent him.
