Biography Karel Doing (Canberra, Australia, 1965)
Karel Doing (b. Canberra, 1965) studied at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Arnhem [Arnhem Academy for the Arts]. Immediately after graduation he established Studio één, a low-budget workshop for experimental and independent filmmakers. Here he produced his first Super 8 and 16mm film experiments and collaborated with many filmmakers and artists from the Netherlands and abroad. In the 1990s he traveled extensively throughout Europe with programs of short films. He produced two episode films (Vitaal Filmen on Super 8 and Rainbow Stories on 16mm) and collaborated with performance groups such as Loophole Cinema (UK) and Metamkine (France). He produced performances as well as films with the sound artist Pierre Bastien. Since 1999 his attention has shifted towards documentary film, without forgetting his experimental background.
