Spencer Bogaert
Director Bio : Spencer Bogaert (1997, Ghent BELGIUM) is currently finishing his Master degree in cinema at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent, Belgium. He started as a theatre actor at a very young age. During his teenage years he made the transition to movie acting, starring in a couple of films, both in Belgium and internationally. As a kid, he always wanted to become an architect because he hoped to find the perfect balance between rationality and esthetics. It was on a filmset however where he thought he recognised the same symbiosis he was looking for in architecture. During his studies, the audiovisual complexity - even in the simplest of stories - became an obsession. The combination of acting and directing is the research domain and starting point for his thesis, as he will also apply this in practice for his Master-film.
