Roel Welling (1979) is director and co-founder of Wefilm. He likes to make credible and touching stories with new ideas.
After graduating from the Film Academy in 2003, Roel started directing films and commercials. The fun of making Max the Hacker made him realize that he loved to pioneer in online films. Stanislav was the next step: a personalized film that freaked everyone out.
Roel has worked together with his brother Bas since they were children. In 2010 they decided to found their own company Wefilm to have total freedom in creating films that pull, not push. Soon after, they selected a team of extremely talented directors and producers, who believed in Wefilm\\\'s vision. Meanwhile, Roel persevered to find new ways to trigger the audience\\\'s emotions. In 2012 he directed Dela that won the Grand Prix in Cannes. In that same year, he co-created the Live Twitter Film that won the ADCN Grand Prix. In 2014, Roel had the honor to be part of the Cannes Lions film craft jury.
