Documentary Maker Swanhilde de Jong from NHL
Swanhilde de Jong made a staff exchange last week to TAMK School of Art and Media. The students of our MA in Screenwriting Programme work with a course on genres, and Swanhilde brought the expertise of documentary scriptwriting to this course. She said she enjoyed her work very much, the students showed a very professional attitude.
Swanhilde came from Noordelijke Hogeschool Leeuwarden, the Netherlands. She is Senior Lecturer in Multimedia Design at NHL. The university is one of our five partners in the Netherlands.
Swanhilde has been project manager for documentary film projects in Uganda and Namibia. She also directs documentaries for her own company, Swanhilde de Jong Produkties, and for Omrop Fryslân.
She also had some time to participate in the MindTrek Conference during her visit.
