morning sessions with studio HER
Studio HER is a creative collective and project agency of 44 creators, embracing the female energy in all things film, video and photography. As a collective, Studio HER creates more diversity both on camera and behind the scenes. The studio takes part in projects that align with the collective’s values, promote sharing and exchange of knowledge, and that build a community of creatives in visual storytelling.
The collective exists to create more diversity behind the scenes, together with like-minded creatives, partners and sponsors. In these Morning Sessions with Studio HER we’ll touch on the female gaze and look into the worlds of Noria Chaal & Colina van Bemmel, who will take you on a discovery through different examples in the music and audiovisual industry, with examples ranging from big brands to small artists.
Noria Chaal (1991) started her adventure as a filmmaker with hip-hop and jazz artists from the Berlin scene. This brought her to Morocco where she directed a music video clip for a German rap label. In the meantime she discovered how many untold stories they were to tell in her motherland and decided to stay a few years. She has been documenting the local music heritage and capturing the growth of the emerging local artists. Now she is based in the Netherlands, from where she focuses on the African diaspora, African heritage and creative motherhood.
Colina van Bemmel (1992) is an independent filmmaker and visual artist. Having a background in fine art, she has an experimental and artistic approach to filmmaking. From the beginning, Colina has been actively working with musicians and dancers, seeing film as a medium more close to music than literature. Even in her documentary ‘Waves of Burlesque’ she intertwines spoken word and performance with intimate scenes based on narrative and observation. Currently she is exploring how to bring live elements into screenings, connecting film to the reality we share outside of the screen.
