Short film - 2017 - 12 min.
The movie tells the story of 14-year-old Elise and a party that got out of hand. The content she posts on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube starts leading a life of its own. She loses control of her online life and her phone changes from her best friend to her worst enemy. The iPhone screen fills the centre of the screen; the surroundings are only visible via the telephone - and only if it is switched on.

When two sisters play a game of hangman late at night, they unwittingly call down evil upon themselves. What if 'hangman' starts leading its own life? Tribute to 1980s horror classics.
Stop-motion animation about the role of transience in our lives. A playing boy disrupts the social group order in a room with dining people. The consequences are explosive.
A Death in the Family
Stylish, short and dystopic film about a perfect looking, yet artificial family in times of hyper-personalised media. The warm family life changes into something robot-like and impassive.
Cartoon-box 2: The Traffic Light
A blind man arrives at a traffic light... You can fill in the rest. Or not, because the equally witty and macabre life lessons of Cartoon-box always have precisely the odd twist you did not see coming.
De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig - Makkelijk (Voor ons)

Cartoon-box 58: The Wedding
Catching the bridal bouquet is not quite without risk, this philosophic cartoon warns.
