Maurits Malschaert
Creative Director
Intermission Film

AMSTERDAM // Maurits is Creative Director at Europe’s foremost film and entertainment creative agency, Intermission Film. As a proud European, he has extensive experience working on award-winning campaigns across the continent for major clients including: Pathé, Netflix, Charades, Dogwoof, Scanbox, Talpa, Snowglobe, Warner Brothers Intl. and StudioCanal.

Maurits began his career editing long and short-form documentaries, but a desire to show the world the Netherlands had talent beyond Paul Verhoeven pushed him to begin cutting trailers. He co-founded Spark Trailers, one of the first Dutch agencies dedicated to creating campaigns for the Benelux Film and TV Industry.

In 2016, Spark merged with Intermission Film becoming the European arm of the company, Maurits has since gone on to help build and lead a multi-talented and disciplined team and cut campaigns for acclaimed titles including: Netflix’s ‘Dark’ and ‘The Witcher’ franchises, Gustav Möller’s ‘The Guilty’, Steve Loveridge’s ‘MATANGI, MAYA, M.I.A.’, Jan- Ole Gerster’s ‘Lara’ and Carice van Houten and Halina Reijn’s ‘Red Light’.

Outside of work, you’ll find Maurits mostly on a bike – in the spirit of the old French randonneurs. Exploring the Netherlands and beyond, together with his young family.
