My name is Lourens Lente. My ambition as a filmmaker is to combine convincing storytelling with engaging visuals.
Here I show my film portfolio, my commissioned and my non-commissioned work from the last 5 years.

In 2014 I finished my bachelor degree in Communication & Multimedia Design at the HVA in Amsterdam (CMDA) and since then I’m working as a freelancer. During my studies, I’ve learned to work together in groups and I’ve passed through the different stages of a creative project.
As a freelancer, or creative entrepreneur as I’d like to call myself, I’ve put my skills to a professional level but most importantly, I’ve learned to teach myself. Being an autodidact creator requires curiosity, motivation and the power to keep on after failing. Being an entrepreneur requires commitment, discipline, and creativity.
