About NOTV

NOTV produces original content: film, TV and audiovisual events. One of our specialisations is adding the visual dimension to music and vice versa. We do this by developing formats and helping artists to expand their multimedia vocabulary and tools, utilising modern technologies and in line with present audience demands. Hereby we fulfil todays opportunities for audiovisually equipped (film & music) festivals, venues, theatres, concert halls, musea and homes. Also TV can no longer do without crossmedia interactivity.
NOTV works with innovative artists and talents in these new multidisciplinary productions, providing the complementary dimensions and technologies. This way we create new opportunities and markets within the music, film and TV industry.

How do we do this?
Todays media use in art and entertainment has drastically changed. Artists now express themselves through a plethora of exciting new tools previously unthinkable. Their audience is reached through classic channels, in live settings and on a myriad of online devices. Modern times therefore demand a new tactical approach by artists, festivals, theatre programmers, TV, film and music industry. The challenge is to obey to emerging modern media rules and user expectations. If taken seriously this provides a new and enormous potential for innovative (re-)packaging of entertaining arts content, serving the audience the pluriform sensitive experiences they expect - live and on the wide range of devices they prefer.
Cross-media is key and it is here to stay. NOTV develops and supports exciting new media productions through our vision, experience and technological knowhow.

We kicked off in 2005 with the Peter Greenaway Tulse Luper VJ Performance and Anton Corbijn's first live VJ performance. Both delivered mind-blowing experiences - it had not been done before and it rocked the crowd, opening the eyes of many fellow artists. Audiovisual live performances followed with Jacob ter Veldhuis (a.k.a. JacobTV). NOTV extended the award-winning animated shortfilm "Barcode" by leading techno DJ Secret Cinema and VJ Finister into a full-blown live DJ/VJ performance which we published on DVD. Many projects followed, always with an exciting interaction between visuals and music. We brought these projects to many places in the world, including Amsterdam, Barcelona, London, Paris, Milan, Rome, Moscow, New York, Chicago, Rio, Sao Paulo, Brisbane.

In 2016 we decided to expand our activities with film, documentary and TV series productions. With a solid track record in film- and event production in combination with our specialist background in theatre and new media we sense new opportunities in the fast changing art and media landscape. An exciting journey in which we partner with artists, musicians, DJs and EDM specialists, production companies, distributors and broadcasters.

His greatest talent however may be his visionary approach in creating and growing companies. As John Sculley said: "Rule 1: change the rules. Rule 2: you better get your metrics right": Eric knows when to pull the whistle and hold his horses but also when to floor the pedal to the metal. A remarkable man.
