Jan Kat (production assistant)
After his career as a school teacher Jan started in 2015 as an extra in the Dutch movie “The Admiral” and in “Blood, Sweat and Tears”, a film based on the life of the famous Dutch singer André Hazes.
He’s been an extra for a long time. Over the years he was often casted for small roles in professional films as well in student short movies.
Almost 6+ years Jan acted in over ninety tv-series, movies and commercials. Producer Ulrica met Jan on numerous filmsets and was impressed by his communicative qualities and kindness.So she asked him two years ago if he wants to participate in a 48hour film project. Not as a supporting actor but as 3rd assistant director. Happily he said yes. Throughout the film day he kept the extras motivated and he stayed very good organized.
His great skills being an extra ánd experience on a film set will be very helpful to the producer.
