Growing up as the son of a studio artist, Bram learned the value of art, of colours and composition, emotion and meaning, and the power a beautiful image carries. Living in the countryside of rural Missouri while being raised by a creative Dutch father taught him to feel comfortable and at home with the converging of disparate ideas, cultures, thoughts, and perspectives. Bram cut his teeth in the live performance music space, fell in love with directing, and began to explore other kinds of expressions through film. While he deeply enjoys collaborating with musicians, working with actors is his favourite thing to be doing on a film set. He especially enjoys tackling stories that engage with the world in a meditative and contemplative way.
