Have a look at small selection of our work. Feel free to contact us for more examples.
We can help design and develop your brand, product, or project on a strategic level. From name to website. We bring the best professionals to the table to make it happen.
We use cinematic techniques to craft the documentary, (short) fiction film, or commercial to help showcase your project, launch your product, boost your sales, or raise awareness for an idealistic cause.
We offer our cinematography skills to other agencies, projects, or causes.
Oculus Film is a creative agency specialised in film. Oculus is Latin for eye. Of course, you can't see or make a film, or any other visual content without your eyes, but our name has other associations, too.
The dome of the pantheon, Rome's best preserved ancient building, is crowned by an oculus. It lets light in - becoming the building's (only) source of illumination. But it also interfaces with the outside world in other ways: when it rains outside the pantheon's floor will be wet, and on Pentecost you can observe rose petals whirling down. Without the oculus the experience wouldn't be the same!
Our name is also a hint to our background in architecture. Designing buildings and designing strategies, campaigns, and films have a lot in common. The two have their formal and functional requirements and there is a component of art to both of them.
We are always looking for the goal behind the question. More often than not, a film fits in a larger picture. Within a communication strategy for example. And it should fit in, otherwise you may as well not throw time, effort, and money to it. Finding this out is often a collaboration. 'Your wish is our command' is not a phrase that generally fits our way of working.
Our ambition is to get the most out of every job. We don't often go the easy way.
While we will adapt to our style to match to the content we are making, we are not completely style agnostic. We love to be a touch dramatic when it counts. We like to show - not tell. Our work is based on cinematic conventions that work, though there's always room for experimentation.
We aim to deliver expressive and timeless results. You will not see overly frivolous clips from us that are based on the latest and hippest trends.
Our studio reflects our love for aesthetics. The office is light, with a big window overlooking the Delfshavense Schie, with few distracting colours to make content shine, and located in a beautiful example of industrial heritage in a lively area of Rotterdam.
