Raymond discovers the magical world of capturing motion pictures

by studying television journalism and years of experience

in the field after that.

He directs, shoots and edits many famous Dutch television shows.

In 2016 he finishes his first film, the documentary Closer to Maarten.

This story about a young man's search for his missing brother,

in the mountains of Northern India, was selected for eleven

film festivals worldwide and won a Golden Stone Award

In 2018 Raymond directed his first fiction film,

Brugklas: De tijd van m'n leven. This film is about a group of kids

in their first years at high school. It was a big success and it won a Golden Film Award for having more than 180K visitors.

Two years later he finished his second documentary, Destination Sobibor, about a young man's road trip to the remote former nazi camp Sobibor, in eastern Poland. On his way to the place where almost his entire family was murdered, this young man is trying to find an answer to all

the questions he has about the faith of his lost family members.

The film was an official selection for the Miami Jewish Film Festival in 2022.

Last year his second fiction film Lioness, a coming-of-age film after
