Hi! I’m Anne Posthuma. I’m a documentary filmmaker, video-editor and photographer. I’m based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
I’ve always looked at the world with wonder and, similarly, had an urge to share my observations. When I was a teenager, all that got channeled into a creatively designed blog. Now, I make imagery, still and moving.
I like to say that I take an in-depth approach to video making. I majored in politics at a liberal arts & sciences college, where I picked up a camera and took some photography courses. During my internship at a great documentary TV program I learned how to film & edit video, which is what made me do a master’s degree in visual ethnography (cultural anthropology). I combined my broad interest in culture and people with filmmaking. A perfect match if you ask me.
With moving images I’m looking for something still, a reflective quality. In my still images I’m looking to move something in you by giving you time to take a closer look.
I care about curiosity, authenticity, and kindness because it’s the perfect breeding ground for creativity. So that’s what I want working with me to feel like: an honest, no-stress, and joyful creative collaboration. Want that too? Let’s talk!
