Internationally renowned commercial spot director Bart Timmer already attended the 5th Regielounge as an honorary guest. Back then his work left a lasting impression, as did the man himself – all the more reason to tempt him back to Düsseldorf for round 32.

Bart had already filmed funny little films with his older brother as a kid. He studied Film & Television Science at the University of Amsterdam from 92-96. He then studied at the Amsterdam Film School from 1996-2000 and already worked as an assistant director for commercials and feature films in Holland.

He produced his first own spot in time for his graduation in 2000. Bart is known for creating funny little stories in a 30 second time frame. So it comes as no surprise that clients including Amstel, Heineken, VW and Centraal Beheer are fans of his work.

Speaking of Heineken – Bart is in charge of the current sensational spot. Don’t know what we’re on about? Just take a look at the spot !

Awards include Silver and four Bronze at the Lion in Cannes, as well as several Eurobests, Clios both in Silver and Gold at the New York Festival, and several distinctions from the ADC Netherlands. And we know there’ll be more to come, at the very latest after the standing ovation of the impressed guests at the Regielounge.

Bart is represented by Czar Films, Amsterdam.
