The short film Monkey Business (original Dutch title: Voor Aap) tells the poignant story of Nila, the only girl of color in her class. When her classmate Rein suggests that Nila play the role of the monkey in the school musical, their teacher jumps to conclusions – but is it justified?
Monkey Business, produced by Kennard Bos and Indra Baars and directed by actor/director Everon Jackson Hooi, is also selected for this month’s Independent Film Festival in Paris and the New York Shorts Film Festival, having already earned an award of excellence, special mention at the Best Shorts Festival.
As of November 1st, Vincent TV Fiction has appointed Lisa May Visser to join the Amsterdam-based team in order to further develop the company’s scripted ambitions beyond quality drama for television and into feature films.
“We are delighted to welcome a creative producer of Lisa’s caliber to Vincent TV,” stated Vincent ter Voert, co-founder of Vincent TV. “Together with fiction producer Kennard Bos, we are confident that they are a powerhouse in the scripted world and will bring great stories to life for audiences in the Netherlands and beyond.”
Lisa May Visser added, “I’m thrilled to join the Vincent TV team and continue building a strong and successful fiction department, where we can tell stories that will be loved by audiences and are rooted in today’s society. I look forward to working with the greatest talents in our industry to create meaningful and unforgettable scripted content.”
Over the past seven years, Lisa May Visser headed the scripted department of Dutch production company NewBe and produced scripted series and films for Netflix, Amazon, Videoland and cinema. She also created the hit-film series “Misfit” with remakes across Europe, Latin America and Africa, as well as the award-winning comedy series “TOON”, released as a Netflix Original worldwide.
