Lucas graduated in 2011 from the Netherlands Film Academy in Amsterdam. Since then he made several award winning Dutch short films like "Green", "Glimp" and "Deadwood". Then he went on to direct 50 episodes of the popular Dutch youth series "Spangas".
During the lockdown for the coronavirus in 2020, the shoot for his newest film “Wall #4” was delayed and Lucas had the chance to make another short film “No Dog in Amsterdam”, which went viral on the internet and won the audience award at Shortcutz Amsterdam.
By making films which transcend from reality, Lucas wants to distinguish himself and reflect on our society in new ways.
