Twan da Silva

Producer / Editor

Twan da Silva grew up during the heydays of flower power. So, it shouldn’t seem strange that during the Nineties, he got caught up in the House music movement and started organising raves. When the scene turned too commercial, he decided to move on and travel the world. After living an extensive period in Rio de Janeiro and Berlin, he came back to Holland and embarked on a successful career as video editor. In 2009 he felt that it was time to give his career yet another turn and attended the London Film School. In 2012 he graduated at the London Film School as a Producer/Director.

Currently he’s developing several projects and cutting documentary films.

Christoph Scherbaum

Christoph Scherbaum is a composer and performing musician specialising in music for theatre, dance and visual media. He grew up in Berlin, lived in Amsterdam and Arnhem (Netherlands) from 2004 – 2015 and currently lives in Switzerland. He studied jazz guitar performance at the ArtEZ conservatory in Arnhem (MA degree). He loves to figure out a director’s vision of a project and then create great music that makes their vision even better. 'It is like a magic puzzle to me, cracking the code until what I see and what I hear are a perfect match. I like my music to have a presence without getting in the way of the bigger picture.’
