Maarten Roos (1970) holds a PhD in astrophysics and worked as a research scientist for a total of 16 years. In 2005 he discovered his heart is in fact with filmmaking. In 2007 he definitely made the change and he is building on a carreer as a filmmaker ever since. In 2008, together with his wife, he created a production company, Lightcurve Films. The films they produce have been mostly on technical / scientifical topics and with an educational angle. In these films science is brought in a different way, with more attention to correct and deeper content and by letting the scientists themselves tell the stories and participate actively. At the same time, there is a constant search for beauty of image and sound. In the educational films different forms of art are explored to clarify abstract concepts.
