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, several municipalities, BCC 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.
Next to my job as senior webmaster and trainer/coach at Servicecenter Drechtsteden (municipal Dordrecht, Papendrecht, Zwijndrecht, Sliedrecht, Alblasserdam, Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, Hardinxveld-Giessendam), I'm focussing on developing myself (further) in the direction of journalism and visual storytelling by creating short documentaries and videos. Feel free to contact me about interesting film, video and photo projects.
Before, in my spare time, 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.
