There’s a reason why the biggest, brightest and best film, TV and animation directors and production managers entrust their most challenging, complex and creative projects to Laurens. Not just a safe pair of hands, he is the most talented ‘maker’ in the business. This, combined with his truly unique and winning personality, great sense of humour, can-do attitude (I don’t think he has the word ‘no’ in his vocabulary) and serious work ethic, make him such an inspiring and exceptional talent to be working with. What I admire most about Laurens is that he treats everyone with equanimity, be they the work experience trainee who he is seeking to imbue with his passion for creativity, or the Chief Executive who he is looking to get on board with his vision.
Working with Laurens has always been a pleasure and I would not hesitate to recommend doing business with him. He tackles every challenge with a deep knowledge and enthusiasm and brings to his work a level of care and execution which is becoming rare in this world of corner cutting and compromise. Laurens is easy to get on with, sensitive to the management of others, good at getting the best out of a team and quick to help when the need arises. In a short a true gentleman. And a talented one at that.
