Fylmer.tv is a film & content crowdsourcing platform that connects brands directly with African filmmakers & content creators.

It is Africa's first crowdsourcing content creation platform, that gives talented African filmmakers, producers, directors,  animators and creatives an equal opportunity to pitch for projects. 

The idea is to help democratise the filmmaking industry and to give brands a direct line to an entire community of creatives that need work now more than ever before.

Vermeiren joined the Scenic Drive to talk about being a father and a business owner. 

Janez on being a father

"Father's Day is normally a big surprise. I get breakfast in bed - and the boys open the presents because they think it's for them. 

"They have been waiting for a week to open the presents. My dream for Father's Day is to be on a plane to travel with my family." 

Janez on business

"Fylmer.tv is a video content creation platform to upload content and pitch it for projects."

"You go to Fylmer.tv - register as auser and create the brief on the platform. When you upload the brief - it goes out to the community."
