Michael Middelkoop (Rotterdam, 1986) is an Amsterdam based director/creative artist. Raised by a Dutch mom and Congo dad, he grew up with Motown soul, MTV, Cartoon Network and Eddie Murphy's Coming to America.
At age 11, Michael sleepwalks and falls 9 meters from a balcony. He breaks both wrists and shatters a knee. Stuck at home, his brother rents him 10 movies a week. Three months and 120 movies later, Michael is brainwashed and only wants one thing in life: make movies.
