Tom Sibma is a young director based in Amsterdam. He loves to represent the familiar as strange and unusual. Besides this visual storytelling, there is an art in making something commercial for him. With his background as a creative director, he loves the power of a simple idea and is always eager to find a striking visual execution. For him, these two worlds could learn a lot from each other, and his goal is to create a new language by merging them.
In and around his work, Tom loves to connect. Connecting the dots in a project to create originality, but also connecting people to make something together. Filmmaking is interesting to him because you bring together a team out of talented individuals. He finds a lot of joy in the process of making and looks for meaning, expression or beauty in every aspect of filmmaking. He is straightforward and hands-on, which makes him easy to work with.
