ERIC OOSTHOEK (Born 1948, Bilthoven – The Netherlands)

all FICTION: Personalised services in film and televisiondrama: direction, writing, coaching and casting... 

In 1972 Eric Oosthoek was one of the first generation of graduates in stage and television direction at the Amsterdamse Toneelschool. During his studies Oosthoek was assistant director to English and German directors both in the theatre and for television. He then worked for several years as a stage director. In that period he completed the NOS course Televisieregie at Studio Santbergen in Hilversum. As a supplemental study he attended various masterclasses in the United States in stage direction, screen acting, and film editing. Apart from creating a number of documentaries he has been, since 1977, responsible for numerous drama productions, single plays, and television films as well as longer running series for IKON Televisie and other public broadcasting organisations in the Netherlands.
Oosthoek regularly sits on international juries, such as the Prix d’Italia and the Geneva-Europe Grand Prize for TV Scenarios. Since 1990 he has published books and articles on film making; he regularly writes his own scenarios. In 2000 his first televisionfilm based on his own scenario, SAINT AMOUR, was premiered at the Nederlands Film Festival; his short film MORGEN GA IK ZELF was shown at this festival in 2001. Commissioned by the Intendant of the Nederlands Fonds voor de Film, he recently he wrote the scenario for the feature film VLUCHT! In 2006 his TV film GEBROKEN ROOD was broadcast by the French-German cultural channel ARTE while his TV film KILKENNY CROSS was sold to Swedish television. In the same year he collaborated for IKON Televisie with co-authors Oscar van den Boogaard and Steven van Watermeulen on his latest TV film ANNA. His most recent project (in collaboration with co-author Hedda Archbold) is a scenario based on Bernlef’s novel BUITEN IS HET MAANDAG, for producer René Huybrechtse of Dutch Mountain Movies.
