I am Maarten Roos, all-round independent filmmaker and planetary scientist. On the filmmaking side, I am passionate about and specialized in factual films on science & technology, music, art and human interest. On the science side, I do planetary atmospheres, small bodies and have interest in the use of space resources.
I have a strong background in science and science communication, which makes me the perfect person to address any science & technology related topics on film. At the same time, I have great passion for music and art.
Being a filmmaker is not a 9to5 job. I feel a constant drive to create and be creative and I seek to expand my horizons and how-know at all times, both through developing independent projects & ideas and by collaborating with a wide variety of fellow creatives and clients.
When on assignment for you as my client, my mission is to deliver a final result that is beyond your expectations, always aiming to produce a fresh new look and sound.
I am available for all work related to the film production process including research, production, directing, camera work, editing, and post production (colour grading, sound mixing).
I have also been teaching documentary film and editing workshops for the Oxford Academy of Documentary Film, and at Oxford Brookes University.
