About me

Cynthia Schild

BA Digital Media Design

In 2002 I graduated from Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht (HKU, bachelor of arts) in the field of Digital Media Design. Since then I have worked mainly as an Online and Web Designer, Video editor/producer and Marketing & Communications specialist for Dutch and international clients, organizations and companies, such as Statistics Netherlands (CBS), HCO, BCC, municipal Wassenaar, Heemstede, Bloemendaal and KPN. I have gained experience with web design, social media, graphic design, storytelling, video editing, shooting footage, motion graphics, online assets, e-mailings, photography, writing, coaching, teaching and project management.
Currently I'm focussing on developing myself (further) in the direction of creating videos and journalism. Next to my job as senior webmaster and trainer/coach at Servicecenter Drechtsteden (municipal Dordrecht, Papendrecht, Zwijndrecht, Sliedrecht, Alblasserdam, Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht and several other municipalities in this area). Eventhough I'm very busy, you can always contact me about interesting film, video and photo projects.
In my spare time I'm currently working on 3 documentaries (about a band, a historical figure and one about my journey to my roots in Indonesia). Before, I’ve been part of the film-crew of the movie “Goeie Mie recomposed”, which premièred at the Leiden International Film Festival in October 2016. Also I was part of the (on- and offline) promotional team. Furthermore, in a small team with friends, we’ve created the local music TV show “4themusic” inspired by “Later… with Jools Holland”. This show is broadcast twice a month on a local TV station (Unity TV). Some years ago with other friends, we've setup and run a biological eating café. Another hobby is traveling and I’ve visited many places in the world.
