Director Biography - Maurice Verburgh

i started filming with an hi8 camera and mostly filming my friends skateboarding and life in the city. I immediately started editing my films and learned from dynamic visual non linear editing to create continuity with shots.
Later on i started to tell stories to shoot and cut in events to create narrative. Being a cameraman is an advantage for my editing and directing.
Doing many shorts on subjects such as sneakers , art expo.s and road movies i started working on my first fiction Film with friends acting and helping producing.
The Farm my first Film took me 3 years to complete.

Director Statement

Living in the Netherlands is a great opportunity to shoot guerilla style no budget Films. The French new wave movement gave me great inspiration and the way Films can be made with no budget.
Curious for my next script? i am looking forward to work with a trustworthy production company in the near future , but first see if "The Farm" is accepted. Enjoy!
