VISUALISING PERSONAL STORIES
We are Pauline and Wim Opmeer. We have been working together as Opmeer Reports since 2010. We specialise in videography and photography about sustainable development, micro-finance and social entrepreneurs, by visualising the personal stories of small scale farmers, entrepreneurs and other beneficiaries in developing countries.
when you hire Opmeer Reports YOU GET
9 years of experience working in developing countries, visualising the impact of sustainable development. + Dynamic reports shot from various angles with DSLR camera’s, drone, 3-axis stabilised handheld camera, professional sound equipment, reflection screens and lights. + Personal care: we take the wishes and deadlines of our clients very serious. + You don’t need to send us to far away places: we are already there: in our 4x4 mobile home in Latin-America and Africa or combining assignments of different clients in Asia. Efficient, ecological sustainable & affordable. + Short social media videos, corporate videos & extensive in depth documentary videos.
The advantages of a compact film and photo crew
Organising a film or photoshoot is relatively easy. + Thanks to our approach we are able to gain the trust of the people featuring in our videos and photos in a short span of time. + We get physically and mentally close to people, which shows in our videos and photos. Extremely important if you want to to involve your audience. + Direct communication lines from the client to the producer, director, camera crew, editor, screenwriter, sound technician: us. + No divided responsibilities: we will make sure the photos and videos will meet your demands. + Affordable rates and a satisfactory experience (see video).
We have worked in 50 countries in Africa, Eastern Europe, Asia and Latin America where we visualised over 400 sustainable development projects and over thousand personal stories. Right now we are working in Africa, in 2020 we’ll work in Asia again.
