Put it Back Down

Michiel ten Horn

director

Michiel’s combination of art direction, pace, sense of humor, and his love for the long shot and visual effects make him a one-of-a-kind director. Besides this Michiel has a wide experience on working with actors and creating believable dialogue scenes.

Michiel ten Horn (1983) graduated in 2007 from the HKU, the University of the arts Utrecht, where he studied animation. As a student he already focused on live-action, but his animation background stayed active, in his storytelling and use of form.

After his successful debut movie The Deflowering of Eva van End (De Ontmaagding van Eva van End), with its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, the prestigious American film magazine Variety listed Ten Horn as one of ‘Ten European directors to watch’.

He also directed the short movies Arie, Alex in Amsterdam and Fingers (Vingers), which was nominated for a ‘Gouden Kalf’ (the Dutch film awards).

His last movie Aanmodderfakker was nominated for Best Director and won three awards for Best Film, Best Scenario and Best Actor.
