Johan Nijenhuis’s track record lists over 40 feature films and TV series. Halfway through high school, Nijenhuis travelled to LA as an exchange student, where he received training in journalism and film technique at the Birmingham High School.
Nijenhuis has all the right intuition and talent for the stories and themes we all love to see. After the Amsterdam Filmacadamie, he directed, among others, Good Times, Bad Times, West Wind and ZOOP. His debut film was Costa! which was followed by Full Moon, Bennie Brat, Fuchsia the Mini Witch and Monkey Business. His feature films Loving Ibiza and Tuscan Wedding are among the greatest Dutch film hits of the recent years.
After having studied Economics, Ingmar learned the trade on set of Baantjer, Spangen and Good Times, Bad Times. He launched a new era with the children’s series ZOOP. Ingmar designed a production method which made it possible to produce affordable daily youth television. This method was used in 4 seasons of Van Jonge Leu en Oale Groond and in over 600 episodes of the successful youth series SpangaS. He created in foreign countries Zoop in Africa, Zoop in South America and SpangaS on Survival. During these productions, Ingmar had the overall responsibility from development of the script to the editing, as well as budgetary. Television series like Malaika, The Lion’s Den, Detective Ria, Trollie and The Swell and the feature films Skirt Day, Boys will be boys, Lucky in Love, Men from Mars and Cuban Love were produced under his responsibility in the recent years.
