Filmproductioncompany Johan Nijenhuis & Co
and televisionproducer JOCO Media

produce films and TV series for adults and children which are anchored in the Dutch culture. We focus on subjects that a wide audience can identify with, and subjects which have a high entertainment value.

We share office with Bing Film & TV and work closely with them. The three respective producers – Johan Nijenhuis, Ingmar Menning and Jan Albert de Weerd – are well attuned to one another and form a solid and professional team.

Vision

At Nijenhuis & Co, we have built a creative environment where every film and TV maker is challenged to bring out the best in him/herself. We like to develop ideas at a fast pace so that the energy in projects stays upbeat and adventurous. This is clearly visible in our films and series: They jump off the screen. It makes us proud to see that our productions are wildly popular in the Netherlands.

The addition of ‘& Co’ to our company name is characteristic: we collaborate intensively with our filmmakers. Producers Johan Nijenhuis and Ingmar Menning also contribute substantively to the development of concepts and ideas. In our vision, collaborating in a spirit of mutual trust with the creators is essential.

Would you like to present or pitch your idea? You can, provided that you have any experience within the film and/or TV sector and that the idea matches our vision. Ideas for Nijenhuis & Co can be sent to: info@nijenhuisenco.nl
