Thijs Schreuder-Rinnooy Kan
The minute Thijs Schreuder Rinnooy Kan was born, he was overwhelmed with a strong desire to be a knight. However, as he grew older, Thijs learnt that becoming a knight can be a rather difficult endeavour and hence decided he was best off learning the tools on how to create and meet his heroes in stories.
In 2009 Thijs successfully graduated as a documentary director from the Film Academy in Amsterdam. His graduation film ‘Roar Of The Lion’ won him the Wildcard of the Dutch Film Fund, which enabled him to finance ‘When The War Ends’, a documentary that in turn won the prize for the best directing debut at The Netherlands Film Festival in 2011 and ran successfully at several international film festivals.
Thijs’ main interest and focus is to capture human heroes on their recognizable, but unique emotional journey. In his documentary work, Thijs combines realism with visual beauty. In his fictional work he aims to create magical and realistic experiences.
Thijs Schreuder-Rinnooy Kan joined the Halal family in 2014 and, together with us, is working on human driven, and visually interesting and appealing campaigns, films and documentaries.
