Beer ten Kate (1986) is director and writer who graduated in 2009 from the Utrecht School of Arts with a bachelors degree in audiovisual media. He spent several years working as an assistent director while developing his own unique style of comedy. This came to fruition in 2015 when he co-created and directed TOON, a critically acclaimed comedy drama for KPN Presenteert: Its first exclusive fiction series. TOON ran for two seasons and was nominated for the prestigious Golden Nymph for Best International Comedy at the Monte Carlo Television Festival.
His debut commercial with Wefilm for Stivoro won Silver at the ADCN Awards. His focus is mainly on comedy projects, defined by hyperrealistic acting and a surreal edge. He loves to use humor to take viewers to an uncomfortable place and hopefully discover something new and true there.
