I’m Anne Posthuma, a filmmaker, camera person, video-editor and photographer based in Amsterdam. Those are many things, and I love it. I apply different skills according to what’s needed for a production. 

It started with photography, I took up a camera when I was studying political science. And, to be honest, I don’t remember what came first: the camera, or a need to capture everyday absurdities that I noticed. My camera made me more aware of my surroundings, and I love to train my sense of wonder this way.

I also help others create their stories: individuals, cultural or social organisations, small businesses, broadcasting companies and production companies. For a while I worked at an online magazine and at a Dutch broadcaster (KRO-NCRV) as a video-editor for their YouTube channels, before deciding to become an independent maker. 

My background is in Visual Anthropology and documentary work. I see stories within a cultural context and am looking for connection across differences, without losing eye for the specific. My work is pleasing to look at, but more importantly, the visual language supports the narrative.

I'd love to meet you. Ask me your question, or just say hi!
