Arjan Brentjes


Arjan Brentjes started his professional life as a painter, and in 2008 he switched to moving images. Since 2010 he is dedicated to making short film, the last years mostly animation.

Arjan often takes the viewer back to a movie style from the past, to look at our future from there. Thereby wittily commenting on the development of our technological society and the haughtiness of man.
