Based in Amsterdam, Maurice has been active as a producer and director for over a decade in television and live broadcasts. His lifelong passion for film finally got the better of him and he decided to switch things up in 2016. The festival favorite short The Invisible Man, the animated prologue for Space Beers and the refugee-documentary Home in Between followed soon after and set the pace for things to come. He has several other movies on his slate; the next being the horror-comedy Kill Me First! and the the psychological thriller The Occupant.
Fun fact: Maurice is (jokingly) known for demanding budget for a helicopter because, to quote him: "helicopters make everything better".
Sometimes gets his wish.
