We are Een van de jongens, the documentary production company of producer Hasse van Nunen and director-producer Renko Douze. A young company, founded in 2011. In collaboration with quirky filmmakers with a strong vision, we produce meaningful and artistic documentaries and television programs. We believe that television is about more than just the broadcast, film more than only the cinema. We value what goes before and comes after. We always look for a second life of the films we make. This way we reach new audiences and enhance the life of our films.
