Rogier van der Zwaag

director

Like the scientists of old, Rogier starts with nothing but a hypothesis – and a camera. As his experiments gather speed they take over his studio, his house and his life. Rogier is known for locking himself up to orchestrate his creations; each a new step in his search for synergy between sound and image, reality and imagination. Whether its mind-bending animated graphics for his CNN-applauded Instagram feed or uniquely crafted worlds as playing the conductor to an imaginary orchestra of smoke for a music video, his work is nothing but mesmerising.
