Hi! My name is Bram Ruiter and I am a filmmaker based in The Netherlands. With my films, I examine the creative process and observe social, textural, and narrative structures. I tend to take a collage-like approach to production and form.

I have just finished up A Weave of Light, a short experimental work inspired by an undeveloped roll of super8.

I've done a couple of machinima mood pieces. Perpetual Spawning is experimentation with time-based systems, while Endless Sea and Infinite Skies are concerned with purgatory.

There's also a duo of travelogues: No Service and Die Labirint. With them I tried to express the hardships of a long distance relationship.

And back in 2014, I co-created the documentary series Super Game Jam. This project inspired me to make many more documentaries such as Beyond the Usual (about modern dance choreographers) and Small and Personal and Tranquil (about a media arts festival).

For more information, glance at my resume (PDF).

Other work

I teach a filmmaking course (BA and MA) at ArtEZ University of the Arts in Zwolle.

Occasionally, I write for the online film publication Frameland which I've also designed and helped set up.

There's also a weekly screenwriting podcast called The Screenplay So Far that I co-host.

And then there's the music I've released as Cloack, Meszahline and myself.
