Frank de Ruiter

MMW 11: Nov 2011

I am an anthropologist and work as a freelance photographer based in Amsterdam. I do assignments (mainly portraiture) for Dutch daily newspaper De Telegraaf and commercial magazines that I combine with work for international non-profit organizations as a documentary photographer. My experience at Mediastorm will help me to combine multimedia storytelling with anthropology in independent projects.


Frank participated in the November 2011 MediaStorm Storytelling Workshop. He had the following to say about his experience:


The workshop was a great experience. I had been trying to figure multimedia out for myself but if multimedia storytelling is what you want, this is the way to go!

At MediaStorm you find an amazing amount of knowhow of the producers who share all their insights into storytelling and give great coaching in the field. It feels very rewarding to put a complete piece together in a week after having completed all the steps that it takes, from finding a story to putting together a final cut.

There is long hours until 2am but the enthusiasm of teammates and producers and plenty of humor will easily keep you going.
