BRAM SCHOUW LANDS AT BLINK

Blink have signed Dutch director Bram Schouw to their roster for UK commercial representation. Schouw studied film in Utrecht, gaining recognition early on when his graduation film was selected to open the Curta Cinema Festival in Rio. Since then his career has gone from strength to strength, picking up a number of awards along the way.

Schouw has become well known for his polished, cinematic style and honest approach to storytelling.

His recent ad for Fonds GehandicaptenSport showed off both these sides of his talent to great effect. Giving the audience an intimate insight into the daily struggles facing a disabled athlete, the film was well received and won a Bronze Lion at Cannes 2017.



Schouw shows off an innate ability to create human, touching narratives in a short space of time in his critically acclaimed commercial for health insurers Menzis.

Another award-winner (there are plenty of these on his reel), the film shows people from all walks of life and examines the things which make them different... and the same. It's a familiar concept, but the deft execution makes things feel fresh and compelling.


Most recently, Schouw's debut feature film 'Broers' (released May 2017) has been making the rounds on the international film festival circuit.

Following two brothers on a spontaneous road trip to France, the atmospheric film shows Schouw embracing the 'inborn scepticism' of Dutch cinema.



Bram Schouw's reel is now available over at Blink, so take a look at some more great work. For more information, get in touch with Sarah Waters at sarah@blinkprods.com or give the team a ring at 020 7494 0747.
