CHRIS VAN KAMP
Chris started out as a radio DJ but soon moved into the entertainment business. He worked as a lighting and set designer, production manager and show coordinator for international tours. He quickly managed to combine the development of content with a virtuoso application of modern stage technology. With PREMIUM PROJECTS Chris is responsible for the conception and staging of event and show content. He compiles the creative integration of the most modern technology available by cooperating with PREMIUM PROJECTS’ vast network of specialized technical experts.
“I think of pictures and my work makes those pictures reality. I love to combine traditional elements of local culture with modern technology to create an internationally understandable arc of suspense. This merging of philosophy and aesthetic produces a new, timeless visual. Only by leaving the crowd stunned with sparkling eyes and jaws dropped after a show with this mixture of information and big theatre, this is when the picture finally measures up to my expectations.“
Christoph started his career in the music business as an artist manager and booker and toured the world as a tour manager and accountant. This was how his valuable network of contacts rose, which today enables us to get direct access to innumerable international acts. In PREMIUM PROJECTS Christoph consults for clients from all sectors in relation to artists and productions, he is responsible for client relations and art purchasing and develops show- and festival programs. Additionally he oversees budgeting and marketing.
“It’s this mixture of permanent impression and transience that fascinates me. It creates a uniqueness, which requires absolute precision and big thinking. We always have to keep the client’s wish in mind and still must focus on the spectator, who is always our center of attention. Especially at the cultural events it is this bringing together of all different tastes, opinions and notions, which leads to an irresistible atmosphere. This is what makes our work so magnificent."
