After cooking up skateboardfilms and comedic sketches in high school, Bram started his professional career as a director at BNN. He went on to add theoretical depth to his practical skills through a Master’s in Film & Television Studies, after which he started directing commercials, music videos and short films.

Bram is an optimist, infused with a lust for life. He believes that in these hectic times, humour is a basic necessity. He wants to contribute with playful, surprising films, involving high concept ideas, absurdism or visual comedy, to show the world isn't such a bad place. A message he also carries out as a teacher at Capetown's Project I AM Township Film School.

In his personal life Bram can be found eating or thinking about Asian food, and counting down the days until he can get a dog.
