Olivia Rochette & Gerard-Jan Claes

Olivia Rochette (1987) and Gerard-Jan Claes (1987) live and work in Brussels. They graduated in 2010 at the School of Arts - KASK with "Because We Are Visual". The documentary allows the viewer to discover the world of public video journals and was shown at several national and international filmfestivals, cinemas and museums.

During their studies they started working for the dance company Rosas and the choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. In 2012 they made the poetic documentary "Rain" about the transmission of De Keersmaeker's contemporary choreography Rain to the Ballet de l'Opéra national de Paris. The film had its premiere at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.

Together with documentary filmmaker Elias Grootaers, they founded a production and distribution platform called Zéro de conduite. This year they also co-founded Sabzian. The website is a collection of online reflections on cinema and maps cinephile events in Belgium and surroundings. From 2013 until 2016 they are artists in residence at the Beursschouburg in Brussels.

In 2014 they started shooting their second documentary with Savage Film: 'Grands travaux'.
