Our Team

Errol Nayci

Creative Director, Executive Producer

The man behind The Storytellers and a great storyteller himself, the man who never ever gives up, is Errol. As a twelve year old boy, he was mesmerised by E.T. (if you do the math, you can guess his age) and he realised that it was also possible to make movies. From that moment on, Errol was convinced that, one day, he was actually going to be a movie maker himself.

Steven Hillenius

Associate Producer, Head of Legal

Steven is the spider in the web at The Storytellers; you can ask him anything. He is our rock and we can not do without him. He is also a trained lawyer, and as such responsible for all legal issues that might arise on and around the set, and in contracting.

In his spare time, Steven loves to DJ at parties, mainly for silent discos (ever heard of such a thing?).

Production Services

The Netherlands production incentive offers a 30 percent cash rebate on eligible Dutch spend for television drama. It already applies for feature film. The aim is to boost the Netherlands’ attractiveness to international television and film makers. With a small national audience (only seventeen million inhabitants) but a rich cultural history, the Dutch have learned to achieve a lot with minimal means. This is particularly true in the Dutch film industry, since the collaborative and open-minded work ethic of the Dutch fits perfectly on a movie set! But pay attention: due to EU regulations, the 30 percent cash rebate is only available to co-productions. 

As a qualifying production company with international co-production experience The Storytellers Film & TV is ready to be your co-production partner and help you take advantage of this rebate. Let us help you to assess your project for this attractive production incentive.
