Highly acclaimed film director and digital visionary Rogier Schalken is your go-to-guy when it comes to thinking out of the box. Whether it be an epic linear cinematic film or a cutting edge VR project, he loves making beautiful films with inspiring people.
Rogier was founder and creative lead of the film and post-production departments at MediaMonks and quickly became one of the driving forces behind their rapid international growth. Iconic projects like Geox 7 Days of Rain, Desperados’ Breakthrough Experience, Adidas Nitrocharge (FWA People's Choice Award 2013), Webber BBQ cultures, Ikea - Where Good Days Start, all carried out his vision. After 10 years of duty, he decided to follow his true passion and focus purely on directing.
Being the coolest and most likeable kind of geek, it is needless to say that VR has peaked his interest right from the start. His immersive and interactive projects - which by the way picked up an array of awards, such as Eurobest, 2 × Webby’s, 2 x Oneshow and Epica - are true testaments of where understanding new technologies such as VR and VFX can drive original ideas.
