In 2005 Sil van der Woerd finished his study of fine arts at the Academy of Art and Design in Arnhem, the Netherlands. At the Academy Sil started using film and mixed new media, live action video and dominant soundtracks to express his fictitious, atmospheric worlds. In 2004 his short film Duet started to gain public attention and had a series of successful festival plays. Then his film Swim went global and played at some of the worlds biggest festivals, bringing home several awards and nominations.
Sil's first music video for the track Worms, by singer Lolly Jane Blue, introduced his new skills in directing, and showcased some high-profile visual effects techniques that Sil learned during his studies at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects, in Hollywood.
Recently, Sil started working on his latest film project: White Swan, which is another music video for singer Lolly Jane Blue.
