CHRIS FRIESWIJK, 30 yrs
The discoverer of Uncle Tahar en developer of UNCLE TAHAR'S HIDDEN TRAVEL AGENCY. Chris Frieswijk is director at Bureau Beeldtaal Filmmakers in Deventer, The Netherlands. Here, he develops creative filmconcepts, together with the clients. From stop motion animations to mini documentaries.
Currently he works there for 4,5 years. Before that, he studied Film- and Television sciences at the university of Amsterdam. He was born in the high north of The Netherlands, in Groningen. He lived in Amsterdam, before he came to Zutphen, where he lives at present.
He listens carefully, and is able to transform complex information to the right target audience. He sometimes sees an entire film story in his mind, beforehand. Next to making music, (google: Sahara Ripple!), he has a predilection for making documentaries and travelling, especially to the content of Africa. Ideally he combines both of them, of course. He went to a lot of African countries en made some short documentaries in Mozambique, South Africa and Uganda.
