Karen Vanderborght




Trained as a film director, I worked as a technical director for art galleries and multimedia festivals and as event programmer (electronic music concerts, audiovisual performances) and lived even more at night while playing as a DJ. Now, returning back to my first love, film and video production, my artsy background gives me a colorful and multifaceted joker in my cultural back pocket to come up with IDEAS that make a difference.

GENRE: Fiction, Documentary, Corporate, Commercial, Visual Arts.
Or any other hybrid genre mix or maybe we can invent a new one together.

As a DOP and CAMERA OPERATOR I have worked with different sorts of equipment, from Betacam, to HD camera's, dslr to super-8 and 16mm (Canon, Panasonic, Sony). Have my own dslr HD rig (Lumix GH1).
I sometimes go about as a camera assistant because I am never to old to learn from more experienced people.

As an EDITOR I work with Final Cut Pro, Color, Motion, Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Avid. Besides editing I enjoy doing some motion and title design.

As a DIRECTOR I have done corporate video's and I have a career as an independent filmmaker of experimental shorts.

WEB - I have used it professionally since 1990. Made websites in HTML and CSS.
