We like to look around. We’ll get our inspiration from daily life, art, movies, music and more. All these influences combine in a great looking images. Images we feel proud of.
Loods Lux & Lumen was founded more than 10 years ago by Ruud de Bruyn and soon joined by Jef Grosfeld. Now partners, Ruud and Jef like to maintain the unique feel of a small and intimate surrounding based on a strong technical background. Today, Loods Lux & Lumen consists of a core team of 4 people. Who is Who?
RUUD DE BRUYN
Ruud settled Loods, Lux and Lumen when the first sparks of HD content were coming through. Together with European partners he worked on making HD and later 2K applicable for the European Cinema. Ruud specialized in this format, encoding movies, wrapping and encrypting the content for secure distribution. Nowadays Ruud is back on his creative seat and will be working with you on finishing your project with titles, credit rolls and the final touch.

Like many others, Jef got into postproduction after working on set for years. In the early days of digital video his enthusiasm shifted from looking through the lens to fixing whatever came through it. Dutch d.o.p. Reinier van Brummelen first introduced him to the magic and possibilities of postproduction in the new era. This was further sparked within his own company CUT Films that he initiated with Mattijs Mollee. In 2005 Jef joined Loods Lux & Lumen. Soon thereafter Ruud and Jef started to refocus the company and set up one of the first true DCI compliant grading theatres of The Netherlands. And it was only the beginning. Now a proud co-owner, Jef remains focused on colorgrading, R&D and business development.
