Special Eyes

How it began

The year was 1998: a summer filled with a long joing trip through Latin America and the shaping of the desire to ‘do it differently’. It led us to settle temporarily in Mexico. There we founded our own media company Special Eyes Productions, which in those early Latin American years mainly focused on making radio programs (podcasts avant la lettre) and journalistic reports from that fascinating region with countries such as Cuba, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ecuador, but also Guyana and later the United States.

Experience

Then with Special Eyes Productions we started to specialize in shorter and especially long documentaries for television and companies, where special people, stories and initiatives are often central.
An approach in which we regularly follow a subject and/or person for a longer period of time leads to special portraits and productions from within, and to films that are regularly selected for film festivals and broadcasted on public television.
The fact that we speak many languages is often an extra tool to get ‘closer to the skin’.

Since 2000, the main office of Special Eyes Productions has been in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
