About Joeri Pruys

I’m a writer, filmmaker and communication professional, fascinated by stories about remarkable people and places.

Born in 1977, I started writing at age ten (a crime novel) and made my first comic strip at age eleven. After an education at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, I worked as an artist for several years, but realized my narrative ideas couldn’t be expressed properly in paintings. So I decided to stop painting and become a filmmaker instead.

In 2007, I wrote, produced and directed my first film, a short, darkly comic horror film. I proceeded to experiment with form and story in several short films, and started writing corporate films. In addition, I began supporting younger filmmakers by giving screenwriting advice and freelancing as a film lecturer (screenwriting, film analysis and film history, up to BA level). With Ewoud Bon I founded independent film production company Naked Pictures. I have written about film for Cineville.nl, AFFR.nl, and ArchiNed.nl, among others.

I am currently working on:

Managing the release and distribution for short film De Blauwe Maagd (The Blue Virgin).
