Dutch director Jeroen Houben is the son of a television and camera salesman and, when he was a child, he took full advantage of the toys at his disposal. His first film was made when he was just eight years old... though you'll be relieved to learn this isn't included in his current showreel.
He built on this precocious start with an appetite for non-stop experimentation across a broad range of skills including writing, animation and music as well as directing. This enables him to exercise full control over the creative process and has allowed him to create a distinctive style combining dark humour and striking art direction.
Despite his fascination with the technical aspects of film-making, he never allows this to overshadow the primary goal of telling a good story.http://www.youarehereuk.com/directors/jeroen-houben/
