based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
David Eilander was born right here *points to the canal* in the heart of Amsterdam and grew up among the characters of city life, from kids on the soccer field to old beer drinkers at the local brown bars. Taking his curiosity for all kinds of people and the worlds they operate in, David brings these elements of reality into his own quirky filmic universes. He often blends this with new creative techniques resulting in a youthful, light hearted style imbued with pop culture and humour. His commercial films are filled with energy and an overall joie de vivre.
