After deciding not to become a clown or a psychologist Anne felt her choice to direct was somewhere in between the two. She graduated from the Dutch Film Academy as a DOP but decided soon after that directing was what she was best at. Her fascination with why people are who they are and doing what they do, gives her an empathy with her actors and inspires them to go to extremes. To Anne, humour and vulnerability are two elements that are inextricably linked and this shows in her strong visual signature as a director. As well as directing commercials, Anne’s first feature film, 'Jack Bestelt en Broertje’ was enthusiastically received by critics and she has also directed a number of series including the new comedy ‘Tessa’.
