ABOUT EZA DOORMTONT
Telling stories, that's what I love to do most. I am the best in telling them in a visual form. I work as a visual storyteller, documentary filmmaker, videographer, (visual) anthropologist, journalist/image editor and as analogue photographer. Stories are everywhere, and everyone has them. My productions often tell the tales of 'normal' people with 'normal' life stories and perspectives.
People, I find the most interesting. I love to dive into other people their worlds. So far into the deep end that I'm almost a real part of it. I have a special eye for narratives and a heart for personal stories. The tales of normal people are not always special at first sight, but I find wonder and magic in those stories. My productions are on the edge of bourgeois, but not less important. The stories I've told are all worlds I did not know or understand before, but I did want to know. Like my short documentary Sealegs , about the seafarer academy on the island of Terschelling and her students who really want to go to sea. Or the women from Women's Gold , who created a better life for themselves, by producing Shea Butter in a cooperative. But where they are also very aware of their position and that what is threatening them.
I am convinced that the world is filled with interesting stories, that deserve to be told. I love to show others perspective on life, seen through visual media.
For my different previous work look at film/video and photography.
I am working on different projects and films, but am also hirable for video, film, audio, photography of crossmedia-productions.
