Govert Janse BIO
Govert Janse began his career at 16 when he moved to L.A. to study film and went on to become a multiple award-winning editor in his homeland The Netherlands. At first focusing on documentaries, he later broadened his horizon with commercials, which continues to be his primary focus and passion. Govert has collaborated with directors such as David LaChapelle, David Wilson, Billy Pols, Bram van Alphen, Gregg Brunkalla, Roger Guàrdia, and Talal Derki on brands including Nike, Diesel, and Johnnie Walker. “Word on the street has it that I am a visual interpreter, a collaborator, an idea translator, a committed hard working gentleman, and that I, because of a documentary background, have a different way of looking at images and am good at problem solving,” he said. “Well... that might be true, but above all I'm a dedicated editor. I truly love editing.”
