Welcome to our new director – Hugo Keijzer
CZAR – Amsterdam welcomes a new, Amsterdam-based director Hugo Keijzer to their roster.
Hugo’s career began as a DOP and Editor at the famous music channel MTV, although he soon realized his heart was more in the directing side of the industry.
After he directed various music videos for international artists, Hugo soon flourished into a versatile filmmaker with an array of short films and campaigns for global brands. Over the years he earned multiple awards for his brand stories, including Cannes Corporate.
“We’re thrilled to work with Hugo. He has so much talent and is an exciting new addition to our creative community. ” – Karlijn Paardekooper and Willem Bos, EP at Czar Amsterdam.
Hugo’s style can be best described as an intimate and melancholic character. His creative strength lies in combining gripping narrative with stunning aesthetics and whose reel shows an extraordinary level of detail.
“I believe in an approach of storytelling that invests in the power of collaboration and I take pride in my close relationship with talented writers, actors, visual artists and – most of all – my clients.” – Hugo Keijzer
Recently, alongside his commercial work, he is developing on two feature films and a television series.
