Nils Vleugels


Nils is a writer/director with an inclination towards deadpan humour. He loves directing commercials with a comical twist, or ones that tell a self-contained story.

Hellingproef, his debut short film, was selected for the Netherlands Film Festival in the Gouden Kalf competition. He wrote the scripts for Rotor & Arrêt Pipi, both awarded with a Short Of The Week selection with the latter becoming a Vimeo Staff Pick.

He recently finished his second short: Weeën, commissioned by broadcaster BNN-VARA & 3LAB. Weeën is about a father-to-be who is overcome with with anxiety and doubt as his girlfriend is going into labour, a story loosely based on his own experiences of becoming a father.
