Poëzie is kinderspel

over het krakende ei
dwaalt een hemelse bode
op zoek naar zijn antipode
en dat zijt gij

mogelijk dat men op zulk kleine schaal
niet denken kan het maakt nijdig
of men is verveeld dus veel te veilig
dan is men verloren voor de poëzie

u rest slechts een troost ligt gij op sterven
gij verveelt u dan ook niet
en plotseling kan dan pop en bal
laat herinnerd u laten weten
dit was ik en dat was het heelal

About

Since I graduated in 2000 I have been working as a director and animator on a variety of projects. My work is mostly very personal in visual style and has a subtle and gentle quality. I like to tell character driven stories with an educational message. Stories that convey an appreciation of nature and are based on optimistic values. I like working with people who are passionate about their work. I think it is important to create a positive working environment where everybody can flourish and help each other create the best possible film.
