Film & Production studio WeMakeMovies huddles years of experience of a visual artist, sound designer, anthropologist, director and producer in a small versatile team. We specialize in making well-crafted video content for the web. We will help you to capture the essence of your story, and wrap it up nicely. A “you are the sandwich, we are the butter” kind of thing. It’s magic!
If you are looking for a team to help you get your message across, you have come to the right place and we would love to meet you. Send us a message with a short introduction about yourself and how you think we can help you. After reading your message, we’ll send you a reply with the next step.
Then we meet. We want to know what you are excited to share with others and why you think they will be too. We want to get to know your topic, issue or business. At this point, we will gather as much information as we can to be able to translate it to video.
What happens next is we’ll sit down with the team and turn your story into a video idea. We will then get back to you with the concept, and what resources we will need to achieve it.
On average it will take us about 4 to 6 weeks to make a video, from the birth of the idea to the finished product. The price of a video depends on a few things, such as the creative concept and the resources available to you. We work transparently and we'll find the right fit. Let's do it!
Short impression from a very special weekend for everybody who wants to take the next step towards a loving and sustainable relationship.
WeMakeMovies was founded by Jo Lamers (producer) and Przemek Siemion (filmmaker), who joined forces with the cream of the crop to make short movies and documentaries. We work for a large variety of clients such as artists, entrepreneurs, organizations, advertising agencies and municipalities.
For as long as he can remember, Przemek has been interested in visual storytelling. Przemek launched his career with a stills camera. He is a visual multidisciplinary with a drive to create credible and touching stories with innovative ideas. In the past years, Przemek’s interest developed further towards moving image. He has since then worked extensively within postproduction and has advanced into making his own movies.
In their work Jo combines a background in anthropology with experience in TV and documentary production in search for the story behind the image. Jo's motto is "Everybody has a story" and their mission is to bring out these narratives and transform them into interesting video content. Jo's strong points are concept development, guiding and supervising creative processes, editing assistance and coordinating.
For a period of 10 years Chris worked as a 3D animator and a VFX artist. After graduating from the Audio Visual Department at the Rietveld Art Acadamy Chris moved to Japan, which greatly influenced his visual style. It moved him away from a solely Western way of thinking about visual storytelling. Back in Amsterdam he is now working as a director and DOP. His fascination for simple forms and clean shots has made him an award winning director.

"Nobody ever died from speaking in public, but many people would rather die than speak in public. And so it is better to tell your story on camera, especially with working with the trustful and authentic people behind WeMakeMovies. Together we created a phenomenal video course!"
We are inspired by great stories. And we want others to get inspired too. Whether it is a product, a group, your business or an action, if you are convinced it's great we would like to help you capture it. Leave a comment here or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
