Erik creates films and television shows, using different animation techniques as well as live action and documentary style filming. Projects are often produced entirely in house; idea development, screenplay, storyboarding and animatics, animation, music etc. When needed collaborations are established with companies in Holland or abroad. Have a look at some of the current projects.
