“As a movie maker I love making commercials. Because then I can work with all elements of film: great cinematography, good and passionate acting, styling, grand sound design, music and editing. In commercials we have to tell our big story with a message . And to build that message in a touching, humorous and, uplifting, original film story. That is what makes directing commercials so exciting for me!” – Erik de Bruyn
Erik de Bruyn studied Film – & Communication sciences at the University of Amsterdam. He works as a commercial film- and movie director and was probably born a storyteller. Everything he does seems to be a hit. His first movie, “Wilde Mossels”, was the opening film at the Dutch Film Festival in 2000 and jump started his career. He moved on to directing music videos and commercials for brands like Heineken, Smiths, Campina, Unilever, Nederlandse Belastingen and KPN.
