Lourens Lente

Filmmaker and Artist


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.

I work as a freelance director, cameraman and editor in Amsterdam and depending on the project I either work alone or in a team.

About me

I am a self-taught filmmaker. These days it’s not hard to get your information and learn on your own. Do you have an idea? Just do it. And so I did. I made 4 short fiction films and surrounded myself with enthusiastic people. People who want to learn and get inspired.

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.


If you’re interested in me as a filmmaker or just as a creative human being you can send me a digital letter:
