Youri Dingemans (Waalwijk, 1988) grew up in the Dutch province of Noord-Brabant. After graduating as cameraman and editor at De Eindhovense School, Youri moved to Utrecht to continue his education at the University of the Arts Utrecht. Here, Youri mainly focused on ‘One shot cinema’.
Youri likes to show the awkwardness of and stay close to the experiences of his time in Brabant. For the sake of realism Youri works with non-actors when possible. This resulted in the short film “Het Goeie Leven” (“The Good Life”) . A film, solely shot in wide angle long shots, depicting the social interactions of a fictive village.
“Het Goeie Leven” premiered on the Dutch Film Festival Student Competition 2015.
At the moment Youri is working on a new production, which will be shot in a style similar to “Het Goeie Leven”.
