My name is Edwin Nikkels. I am a film director, currently working out of Amsterdam. I direct engaging high-end content for production houses, ad agencies, interactive studios and other media related companies, both national and international.

My work is characterized by the use of iconic imagery and implementing the latest creative insights and technology during the production process. With a style of directing, someone once described as ‘epic yet intimate’ and ‘never losing focus of the concept’, my work has covered commercials, virals, interactive- and branded content.

Being privileged to have worked for clients like Coca-Cola, Nike, Nissan, Philips, Sony and Volvo, my work meets the highest of standards, making you stand out in the vast ocean of premium content out there.
