Joost de Vries
Producer Joost de Vries has been CEO and producer of Amsterdam-based renowned production company Lemming Film for over 20 years, establishing a considerable international track record. In 2016 he decided to (once more) become an independent producer. With his new company An Original Picture, he is working closely with exceptional filmmakers on international productions.
Besides being a producer, he is the managing director of Amsterdam Post Lab organizing international workshops for producers and post-production supervisors to improve their post-production management skills under the slogan: ‘Post before you shoot’ and he works for the Dutch insurance company No Risk On Set, providing risk assessment and monitoring film productions of a certain scale and complexity for their completion bond product.
Joost de Vries and Dana Linssen were asked to jointly write a strategic plan for a new talent and skills development institute for working professionals in the Dutch film and audiovisual sector. From 2020 until 2022 they have been working together as quartermasters on the pilot phase of network organization FilmForward.
