Besides film directing, I love camera operation and film editing as well. In filming, I focus on creating long, smooth movements. In editing, I give audio the same amount of attention that I give to video – to treat both eye and ear with harmony.
Joshua van ’t Hoff (1987) is an award-winning narrative & documentary filmmaker from Haarlem, the Netherlands.
Filmmaking was already in Van ’t Hoff’s life early on; bringing a video camera to high school to capture classes and situations, and making entertaining films with his siblings or friends. It became serious in the end of 2009, when he needed to make an informative video for his education in journalism at the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam. This project let him discover all stages of the creation of a film, making him realize that filmmaking is both his passion as well as his profession.
At the start of the year of 2011, Van ’t Hoff made his first short narrative film: ’Cinema Palace’, a non-fiction film about a film theater in his hometown Haarlem, the Netherlands. It marked the start of his life as a filmmaker and the launch of his film production company. Soon after, he started a 6-month internship as a camera operator at the Royal Theatre Carré in Amsterdam for short documentaries about artists, discovering the art of cinematography professionally under director Robert Weijs and guided by media consultant Eric van der Sluis. After finishing his internship, he continued working at the theatre for two years more. At the same time, he began working as a freelance filmmaker – thereby slowly finding a balance between his commercial and artistic side.
Van ’t Hoff finished his education in journalism in 2014 with his first documentary film ’Truth & Privacy in the National Archives of the Netherlands’, concerning relatives of Holocaust victims and their quest for truth in access restricted World War II files. After that, he decided to develop himself artistically by focusing more on producing narrative and documentary films. At the moment, he is writing the scripts for new narrative films, and he is working on two documentary films simultaneously: ’Hidden Heritage of the Sobibór Extermination Camp’, and ’Complete Portrait Wanted of Markéta Ledererová’. Next to his own film projects, he also works for other filmmakers.
