about me

My name is Remco van Schadewijk. I have a MSc degree in Life Science & Technology, which I attained cum laude at Leiden University. My focus is on scientific filmmmaking, often using narrative fiction, while pursuing my PhD in Leiden.

Being trained as a scientist, I quickly realised that I am too creative to focus on research alone. Rather than having to choose between the two, I combine them in scientific communication.

Ever since I’ve been keen on expanding my knowledge and skills in visual communication. I believe that science education can be greatly enhanced by the use of visuals in exciting new forms of communication.

On this site you can find that part of my work and projects that deal with visuals. If you have any questions about me, my work, or perhaps have an interesting project, you can always send an email to, or simply contact me using the form below.

Creative Producer

As a film producer, my main interest is in combining science communication, education, art and science fiction into exciting formats and concepts. I believe that communicating science can be greatly enhanced by the use of visuals in exciting new forms of media.


As a PhD candidate I study plant life using Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Using this technique I am investigating very small plants such as the Thale-cress or even algae colonies. The biggest draw for me is the unique perspective MRI gives on biological systems.


I often light films as a gaffer because it is a great way of meeting new talented people and I thoroughly enjoy the craftsmanship. Being close to the fire means that sometimes the feeling creeps up that you are watching first-rate theatre, and you have front-row tickets.
