About the Crew
Director - Writer : Robin De Cock
Robin is a Masters student at RITCS school of arts in Brussels.
In his school carreer he made several shortfilms where suspense and tension stood centre stage.
Other than a filmmaker Robin loves to travel. Before filmschool he traveled to Russia, Siberia, Mongolia, China, Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. After this he hitchiked once from Paris to Scotland and once from Belgium to Sweden.
Robin is an overwhelming extravert who tries to make a connection with everyone he meets. This is a trope he explores in his writing and directing. Looking for meaning in the small things while telling stories that are bigger than they seem at first.
Director Of Photography : Idan Datauker
Idan graduated from RITCS as a DOP in 2020.
His final project he shot together with Robin. After graduating he went to work immediatly as a DOP or camera assistant on various professional filmsets, as well as shooting shortfilms.
Idans expertise is combining a broad knowledge of the technicalities that comes with filming as wel as having an own style in cinematography.
Idan will take care of the visual aspects of the film. Cinema is a language in which Idan is fluent and poetic in. As wel as a talented DOP he has become a good friend of the director over the years.
A duo that works well together and can have a beer afterwards as well.
Assistent Director : Jonathan Van Hemelrijck
Jonathan 'Johnnie' Van Hemelrijck will be assisting the director Robin in his endeavers to make Vilse come to life.
As a master graduate in directing himself and producer, manager and cameraman of his own filmcompany Johnnie is a force to be reckoned with. His insights in the workings of film and production are unmissable in any production Robin tries to set up.
As wel as a productionbeast Jonathan is a traveller as well. There are not many places he has not visited and he has some experience in hitchhiking as wel. A lot actually.
It's not a suprise that Robin and him became good friends in the beginning of filmschool and are now going as a team to Sweden. I could not tell you a better person to help me make this production come to a finished product. Johnnie will take care of the practicalities of the filming as well as being a second pait of eyes for the tone of the film.
Chef Audio: Mathieu Van Den Driessche
Mathieu is a graduate in Audio for Film at RITCS, a musician and a good friend of Robin.
He worked on several projects with Robin as well as multiple other shortfilms and on professional filmsets. His knowledge reaches from crisp audio recording to elaborate audio post-production.
And to no suprise he is a traveller as wel. He travelled together with Robin before filmschool and has been a dear friend of him since they were in high-school.
He will be overseeing the entire audio production of Vilse. From the audio-mixing on set to the post-production process afterwards.
An experienced, passionate guy with a good insight and creativity in everything audio.
Boom Operator: Yannis Van Den Ecker
Yannis is a graduate in documentary film at RITCS, musician and our creative soundguy.
Yannis writes music, plays in different bands and is at the verge of starting his own audio postproduction company. His love for every kind of sound and intricate knowledge in the creative aspects of sound in film makes him the ultimate addition the the filmcrew.
Yannis and Robin have known eachother for over 20 years. Meeting eachother in the scouts, going to the same highschool and attending the same filmschool. It's clear to say Yannis can not get rid of Robin even if he wanted to.
Together with Mathieu Yannis will record every sound that we will need to make Vilse.
His creativity in what a sound can mean, or the ephasis it can bring to a story will give Vilse that extra touch.
Key Grip : Maximilien Van Den Abeele
Maximilien is also a student director at RITCS. He started in the same year as Robin and they have been helping eachother on their projects early on.
Over the last year Max has been working as an assistent grip on various professional filmsets. On Vilse he wil be the key grip, which means he will make sure everything from lights to camera are secured and ready for the road.
A very passionate guy with a heart of gold who will make sure every crazy shot that Robin thinks of can be rigged.
