“I worked with Harrie to create an explainer video for our startup and had an absolutely superb experience. I was 10 out of 10 delighted not only with the final product, but with our collaboration process. It’s very rare to find someone who is so highly reliable, creatively talented, communicative, dedicated, and detail-focused. At every turn I felt like Harrie worked on our video as if it was his own. I’d work with Harrie again in a heartbeat.”

“Whilst tutoring I first met Hendrikus at the New Zealand Film and Television School where he showed an above average understanding of film making and commitment to the craft. I’ve watched Hendrikus over the past few years grow personally and push himself in film making, particularly Stop Motion where I think his excellent film “Disappear” shows his dedication, creativity, vision, skill and talent plus his ability to work around and solve problems where many would give up. Hendrikus is hard working, has a vision and would be an asset to any company.”

“Working with Harrie on my “Be My Lady” music video was nothing short of an EPIC experience. Harrie really made the whole experience stress free and a lot of fun. He has had some pretty big success in the film industry and that was evident in the way that he had everything planned to a tee. He also helped me feel more relaxed in front of the camera which was a huge thing for an uptight dude like me.

Since the release, I have been featured in MOOD magazine and landed various gigs around the country including playing for Sofar sounds in Wellington.”

“Hendrikus De Vaan is fantastic to work with. He’s very intuitive with clients and very creative. He’s demonstrated himself as a skilled problem solver and very patient. We work with a high volume of freelancers, but he stands out for his prompt delivery. He’s a talented individual and lovely to work with.”
