Tom Van Avermaet
Born in 1982. Enchanted from an early age by the celluloid dreamscape of film, he always aspired to be an audio-visual storyteller. Inspiration was found in the great surrealists of cinematic past & present, as in a love for the fantastic and imaginative. DEATH OF A SHADOW, his first professional short after the thesis film DREAMTIME (2006), has garnered nominations from both the European Film Awards & the US Academy Awards (Oscars).
