Werner Damen

BIO

WERNER ORIGINALLY GRADUATED AS A MASS PSYCHOLOGIST AT THE UNIVERSITY OF AMSTERDAM WHERE HE SPECIALIZED IN OPINION DYNAMICS AND MASS PSYCHOLOGY. HIS SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH INTO THE FIELD OF MODERN DAY PROPAGANDA LED HIM TO COMMERCIAL FILMING WHERE HE QUICKLY REALISED THAT ALL HIS YEARS OF DRAWING, PHOTOGRAPHY AND WATCHING MOVIES SUDDENLY CAME IN HANDY. OVER THE YEARS HE LEARNED TO DEVELOP HIS INSTINCTIVE VISIONS IN AN UNHIBITED WAY TO PERFECTLY COMBINE THEM WITH THE MAINLY COMMERCIAL GOALS OF HIS CLIENTS. MANY NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL AWARDS LATER HIS STYLE IS BEST DESCRIBED AS LYRICAL REALISM, VERY CONTEMPORARY AND BEAUTIFULLY SHOT, WITH A STRONG FOCUS ON VISUAL STORYTELLING. WITHIN THAT REALM THE STRONG NARRATIVE AND ATMOSPHERICAL CONTENT OF HIS WORK, TOGETHER WITH ITS HUMANITY, BEAUTY AND IN SOME SPOTS A LOVELY TOUCH OF GREAT SUBTLE HUMOUR, ARE OFTEN MENTIONED AS SEVERAL OF HIS QUALITIES WHICH DISTINGUISH HIM FROM HIS COMPETITORS.
WERNER IS DUTCH AND LIVES IN AMSTERDAM.
