Alexander Goekijan loves to create a compelling story out of raw footage. For directors Alex is amazing to work with. He completely commits himself to a project until the essence is translated in the right narrative.
He also has technical knowledge on image processing software and techniques. Alex edited numerous TV and cinema documentaries, commercials and online branded content.
Alex is the editor of choice for Story Collective’s productions. He edited the PostNL E-Commerce film and A.Vogel’s Fresh Herbs video. In both projects film and animation come together, and Alex had to work closely with animator Jurriaan Hos.
Alex also makes the international versions of Story Collective video’s, replacing the package shots of certain products. Alex is a fluent speaker of Dutch, English, French, German, Italian and Serbo Croatian, which comes in handy for the international assignments of Story Collective.
