Oscar Spierenburg (1981) is a painter, director and cinematographer. As a painter Oscar already established a name in The Netherlands and Belgium for over a decade with a serene palette, sense of form, simplicity and an impressionistic way of working. As a director he seeks the same atmosphere. His feature length film ‘Vantitas’ shows a dark side of the art-world. ‘The Spring of César’, a well received short film, was his film debute as independent director and cinematographer. The music for this (and other films) were composed by Oscar and his brother Tobias Spierenburg. Oscar is also the founder of the award winning Apertus – open source cinema camera project, an international platform for filmmakers creating open and affordable technology/means for independent filmmakers.
