Broadened by research and enriched by nuance.
De Lichtjagers create an equal playing field in which a good idea grows into a full-fledged film or video production that sparks dialogue. A dialogue that moves, clarifies or maybe even confuses and at the same time is relevant, connecting and surprising.
Together, we make stories that you share and remember.
Reliable, clear and surprising thinkers and (film - video) makers. Well..that's how our clients characterise us.
How to set up a film / video production to strengthening relationships?
We guide you to a refreshing and appealing transition. So that your (short) documentary or video enriches and connects to you audience.
In our approach, we involve you as much as possible in the basis of each production. You with your knowledge of your organisation and your goals in mind, we with our knowledge of beautiful productions for knowledge sharing or influencing behaviour. We like to ask questions and try to be even better listeners.
An equal relationship with our clients is the best basis for a good editorial and creative process. We feel at home among critical professionals who sometimes dare to leave the beaten track.
We are all under the spell of stories. Stories give life meaning. Literally, because without stories the world is a mass of unrelated details.'
