Lieven van Baelen

Belgian native Lieven van Baelen began his career as a telecine operator before becoming one of Belgium’s leading colourists. He then stepped behind the lens to be an award-winning DP; but his desire to keep adding strings to his bow meant directing soon became important to him.

Renowned for his cutting-edge visual style and vast understanding of post production techniques, van Baelen nonetheless consistently ensures the story and feel of his films take top priority.

Sky Sports
"Pit Lane"
As the 2019 Formula One season careers into view, Sky Sports shift into reverse (so to speak) with this promo that condenses nearly seventy years of motorsport history into 40". Kicking off with a mechanic rolling a Dunlop tyre to a Ferrari forerunner, the ad subtly transitions into the respective eras of James Hunt, Damon Hill, and Sebastian Vettel.
