about ocvlvs.film

Watch some of our work below to get a feel of who we are.

SHOW — DON'T TELL

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 Oculus has other associations, too.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

We are always looking for the goal behind the question. More often than not, a film fits in a larger picture. Within a communication stategy 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 suits our way of working.

OUR BACKGROUND IN ARCHITECTURE

We have a background in architectural design. Designing buildings and designing strategies, campaigns and films have a lot in common. There are always formal and functional requirements and there is always a component of art.

The background in architecture also informed our name. Rome's best preserved building, the pantheon, has an Oculus. It lets light in- becoming the building's source of illumination - but also rain, and on Pentecost even rose petals! Without the Oculus the pinnacle of Roman architecture would not be so impressive.

OUR STYLE

Everyone has a style. A style that is represented in the result, but also a style of working.

Our ambition is to get the most out of every job. We don't go the easy way.  We also have a preferred visual style: expressive where it counts - a touch dramatic, timeless, quite slick and based on the conventions of cinema. 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, few distracting colours and located in a beautiful example of industrial heritage in a lively area of Rotterdam. Be sure to pass by for a cup of coffee!
