‘Watch what the masses are doing and then do the exact opposite.’
A principle you’ll see appear many times when getting to know CHAR.
Charlotte Verminck is a filmmaker and founder of CHAR'Z Productions, born and raised in Belgium.
Ever since Charlotte was a little girl, she has held a camera in her hand and carries an intense excitement for visual and written storytelling. Discovering her love for the film editing process and its moving power when she was 10 years old, she has never stopped since. Her Shih Tzu dog, whom CHAR considers her muse, got the starring role in the first few videos she has ever shot and edited.
The aesthetic of Charlotte's projects is based on the exploration of human psychology, usually topped off with a poetic undertone. She often combines the contrast of naturalism and a touch of flamboyance. Through her projects, CHAR aims to create an atmosphere of connection and introspection.
Charlotte owns a Bachelor's Degree in International Communication and Media. While she completed these studies, Charlotte worked as a video artist and creative director for renowned Belgian musician and artist Ozark Henry with whom she had created a creative arthouse SOH.
CHAR discovered her deep passion for film during her stay in Los Angeles interning at a high-end production company located in Hollywood. After she graduated, CHAR immediately started to deepen herself in the world of cinema making her debut with the award-winning “Pathless”. She believes that anyone can do anything if one just follows their curiosity while continuing the act of never giving up.
This vision got extended by founding a creative production company, CHAR'Z Productions, which is built on the need to have a place where people can go where they feel valued and respected and allows them to be involved in projects that are truly labored with love. Charlotte puts her full energy behind creating a thoughtful, warm, and kindhearted environment that gives people with a passion the opportunity to work, collaborate, learn, and grow.
Charlotte is a big supporter of connection, equality, and persistence. In her eyes being yourself is the prettiest thing a human being can be and can lead to boundary-breaking results. Life has a lot of bumps in the road but also a lot of high mountains. CHAR believes that together we are able to focus on these last.
