VODAFONE - Tomas Kaan


‘Charisma, that’s the soul of this tiny tale’

A young event planner is working frantically on his upcoming event while his wife is about to give birth. Hectic! But the Internet of Things saves the day. 

Packaging cutting edge innovation in a warm human story within half the required shooting days… What is the secret? Director Tomas Kaan: ‘Turning a storyboard-character into a real colleague and partner by making room for the one thing that is real: his charisma.”

Producer Marty Keizer: ‘A tough production. It reminds you that you’re nowhere without a team of highly skilled professionals. But such challenges are also the highlights. These are the films that I show my friends when they ask me what I’m doing.’

Tomas Kaan

Tomas Kaan studied history in Amsterdam and Berlin before embarking upon filmmaking. His work is characterized by an outspoken visual style that walks the line between documentary and fiction. To him, filmmaking is a way to preserve the time we live in, not unlike the preservation of things in a laboratory. He has a soft spot for experimental films and his all time favourite book is J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye. His films have been shown at film festivals all over the world and have won multiple awards.
