Jaan & Michiel

As a directing duo, Jaan Stevens and Michiel Venmans continuously feed off each other’s strengths. Coming from different storytelling backgrounds, they always try to find the sweet spot between visually entertaining films and authentic human stories.

By embracing Jaan’s thoughtfulness and Michiel’s spontaneity, they approach each film from the very essence of the story. Using the best of ideas from both perspectives, they establish the style best suited to the project, ultimately leading to a well-thought-out and inspiring film.

They may only be at the very start of their journey, but they’ve already had the opportunity to work with recognised artists such as Mauro Pawlowski, blackwave, Eefje De Visser, Marble Sounds and many others. Both have also worked on successful documentary projects. Michiel’s South American passion project about Eduardo Rovira and Sonico was featured at the International Tango Festival and World Cup, and Jaan was awarded a 2019 VAF Wildcard for his documentary Voor Eunice.
