Kasper and the Christmas Angels

AVRO TROS will broadcast the new adventure series Kasper and the Christmas Angels starting daily from the 6th of November on NPO Zapp. I have done the editing of this 20 x 10 minute episodes.

Between Santa Claus and Christmas it will be shown daily for the whole family. Among others Horace Cohen, Wendell Jaspers, Rene van ‘t Hof, Juul Friday and Marc-Marie Huijbregts play a role in Kasper and the Christmas Angels.

Kasper and the Christmas Angels is about Kasper (Sem Hulsmann) who wants to be an astronaut to make deep space travel. But, before the time is up, he must still practice a lot and of course grow up. What especially bothers him now is that he had to move from the city to a mill in the countryside.

While the rest of the family begins with great enthusiasm to their new lives, Kasper finds it all just stupid. It is for him a lot more fun when he meets two odd types: Ava (Demian Henkes) and Zazu (Noah de Nooij). It soon becomes apparent that it is not just oddities; they are angels! The two are lost and crashed on earth. Despite their magical powers they need help to be able to return home. Kasper will be delighted to help!

Director: Anielle Webster

Monkey Business (3D)

In the fall of 2014, I will be busy with the first Dutch family feature in 3D entitled Monkey business. Together with Bas Icke  I will edit this film.


The nine year old Wim dreams of going to school. But he lives in the orphanage. Together with the other children of the orphanage he is exploited and has to work hard every day in an illegal broom factory in the basement of the orphanage. The children eagerly await the introduction of the Education Act that children aged six to twelve years required to go to school. If Wim escapes, Jet makes sure he can hide on their farm. It is the start of a race against the clock full of exciting adventures, mischief and new friendships, with Wim especially when he must try to stay out of the hands of the director of the orphanage.

In the summer of 2015, this film will be shown in Dutch cinemas in 2D and 3D.
