about

company
what we do
company

We are an integrated production company, creatively driven to make exciting experiences that engage real people. Working across four key disciplines of digital, film, animation & visual fx and experiential, we combine all of our expertise and variety of skills to deliver something special for each of our clients. And we love doing it.

Digital

When it comes to good old digital we love a great website, app or experience, and get over-excited about beautiful design, smart UX and brainy tech solutions.  

We are passionate about new technologies and are always looking at ways to keep ahead of the game so we try our best to shoe-horn dedicated R&D time in around our client projects – just so we’re ready for the next one.   

Our digital chops start with creative and design and go all the way through to development, build and testing.  

We can apply this to everything from websites, widgets and mobile apps to games, banners and social apps.

Film

In terms of Live Action, with a hand-picked network of directors to call upon and an experienced team of producers we can cover a wide variety of styles and treatments.  

Together with our fully-equipped post-production facility we can do practically everything under one roof (end-to-end, as they say).   

The type of films we produce range from commercials to internet-only interactive movies and ‘viral films’ as well as branded content in all sorts of shapes and sizes.  

In addition to direction, we offer online and offline editing in-house as well as grading and sound/music through our network.

Animation & VFX

To sweeten the pot, our experience in animation and VFX means that we can broaden the range of what we produce even further, not only in linear content but also in digital and experiential projects, all without losing the ‘under-one-roof’ bit.  

Huddled together under this roof you can find skills like 2D special effects and compositing, 3D modeling and character animation, titling and motion graphics.  

The type of films we produce range from commercials to internet-only interactive movies and ‘viral films’ as well as branded content in all sorts of shapes and sizes.  

Experiential

Our experiential work – sounds a bit like experimental and often is – covers the projects that don’t just live on the internetz or on our tv’s but often in the ‘real world’ as things we can touch, see, hear, smell and physically interact with.  

Examples range from 3D projections, touch-sensitive graphics, real-time rendering, audio responsive experiences, gesture-based displays, virtual reality and integrated installations that mix any or all of the things we’ve covered above.

Maarten’s surname is pronounced ‘bone’ but actually means beanAs a youngster growing up near Amsterdam, he aspired to becoming a carpenter but that changed as soon as he realised computers left behind less sawdust to tidy up and he headed to film school to study Visual Effects instead. It was there, during his graduation year, that he got the opportunity to work with one of his heroes – Paul Verhoeven, on his movie ‘Blackbook’. This almost sparked an early-onset midlife crisis due to fulfilling his dreams too early, but thankfully he managed to hold it together and graduate. He went on to have a successful career as a CG supervisor and visual effects director before eventually founding Minivegas Amsterdam where he has directed and co-directed a whole host of award-winning live action, animated and interactive projects. All this experience means that Maarten possesses a uniquely integrated approach to his work but, sadly, remains a very average carpenter.

Damien comes from a small medieval village in the south west of France. Not medieval in terms of the standard of living you understand, but it’s heritage. Apparently it was the perfect playground for kids, with towers, ruins, moats, underground passages everywhere, so Damien could prepare for his preferred future career: being Indiana Jones. As it transpired, he eventually followed a slightly different path – studying art history in Bordeaux, followed by a second helping of art studies in Lyon and then a naughty desert of 3D animation in Valenciennes. After all that, it’s hardly surprising that he graduated with honors and won a bunch of awards for his graduation film: Overtime. As a grown-up, just like his childhood hero: Indy, Damien is never happier than when he’s travelling through wild places and eating monkey brains. But in his spare time he makes amazing animated films, and that’s the main reason we love him.

Derby is an English town, famous for being the birthplace of the industrial revolution. Despite being neither industrious or revolutionary in his formative years, this is also the birthplace of Will Innes Smith. While we think that Will’s early ambitions of becoming a sniffer-dog could actually have been pretty revolutionary indeed, it wasn’t until a chance encounter with Terrence Malick’s Days of Heaven that his passion for film was born. Nowadays, Will is one of the most industrious folks we know. Whether shooting the latest spot for Sony Playstation or making food do beautiful things in slow-mo, he is always at the creative heart of a production, unraveling the seed of an idea into something watched by millions. He may tell you that, had he not become a director, he could have been playing central midfield for Derby County or furthering his degree in Psychogeography… we don’t even know what the second one means but we are just glad he chose to make great films instead.

Claas swears he has never drunk any alcohol or experimented with drugs
Claas swears he has never drunk any alcohol or experimented with drugs which is surprising given that A. he grew up in ‘a boring shit hole’ on the outskirts of Hamburg and B. that he is always the first one dancing on the table. As a young man, he harbored ambitions of becoming a comic book artist and a womanizer but he was swayed in at least one of those pursuits by the work of Jonze, Glazer and Gondry on MTV. These role models turned him onto movies and he fled for Munich and the famous HFF film school. He picked-up a Cannes Young Director’s Award on the way out and everything went from there. Claas’ sense of humour is right up our strasse and we’d love to help him in his quest to build a reel like his idol Tom Kuntz. In the mean time, we promise to keep him supplied with Nutella, Cheeseburgers and Ginger Beer in return for the secret to his indefatigable optimism.
