Professional Profile

Hi and welcome to my website! My name is Willem Bartelings, a 21 year old concept developer and film maker. I recently graduated from the study International Media & Entertainment Management.

My vision on the world is slightly different. To me it is very important that everything I create takes people into a story, that it inspires people and let them escape their daily lives. I see myself as a creative mind. who, starts working on a concept, with eye for detail, from the core of an idea in order to set the proper context.

In different areas of the media world I work with as much enthusiasm and effort as possible. From film till television & from the online industry to theater. Media isn't my job, it's my passion.
