Cinematographer. Filmmaker. Storyteller.
Frits de Beer (1967)is a director with a poetic eye. His scenes are like cinematic pearls on a string strung together where the common thread of the story always remains visible. It is his way to bend time and storyline in such a subtle way for the brain to absorb and store it.His work is often recognizable by the unusual moment of the day that he picks
for filming as well as the photographic approach of composition and framing. During the edit, that he often does himself, he continuous directing the film which gives it a special touch and it distinguishes him from other commercial directors
The reason to work with Frits is often an emotional one, based on one’s feeling. Because that is precisely what characterizes Frits. If you are a film fanatic just like Frits, you’ll recognize in his work some of the great directors such as Tati, Tarkovsky, Pasolini and Fellini.
“What I’ve ever made I’ll never make for you, nor for anyone else
It’s already done, can’t and will not repeat myself
See what I once made and then forget it.
What I make for you is new and does not exist until we have had a coffee together, then there is the emergence of something new that will never be made or repeated after that.”
