Best Trailers for November 2020

 

Action Reaction


The Heyl Brothers (Justin Heyl & Joël Heyl) are two talented filmmakers who decided to keep it in the family when they teamed up as a producing/directing duo. Both graduated at the prestigious Utrecht school of arts, they are ready to seriously “kick some ass”.  

Justin Heyl founded Action Reaction Productions in 2007 and has worked on many different multi-media projects as a designer, photographer and director. Justin also won an important award for upcoming talent in 2010 for his films and photo-graphy.

Besides his art he also developed a new post production technique called EDI which is enabled in the Acid Theatre. Nothing stands in his way to perceive his ultimate dream to enrich the world with his cinematic art, while pursuing and developing new cinematic techniques. 

Joël Heyl is very gifted when it comes to an eye for cinematic detail and the knowledge to back it. He’s extremely versatile with a strong “hands on” approach. From directing to DoP and editing, Joël has a unique ability to capture emotions in their purest form. He’s a wizard in post-production, making him a complete package when it comes to making movies.

About the Director: 

The Heyl Brothers (Justin Heyl & Joël Heyl) are two
talented filmmakers who decided to keep it in the family when
they teamed up as a producing/directing duo. Both graduated at
the prestigious Utrecht school of arts, they are ready to seriously
“kick some ass”. Their horror project (the Acid Theatre) already
triggered the media and resulted in an extraordinary piece of art.
On their latest contribution to the romantic genre (Fine) they even
got a whole city in uproar and created quite a buzz when
the mayor himself got a part.
Justin Heyl founded Action Reaction Productions in 2007 and has
worked on many different multimedia projects as a designer,
photographer and director. Justin also won an important award for
upcoming talent in 2010 for his films and photography. Besides his
art he also developed a new post production technique called EDI
which is enabled in the Acid Theatre. Nothing stands in his way to
perceive his ultimate dream to enrich the world with his
cinematic art, while pursuing and developing new techniques.

detail and the knowledge to back it. He’s extremely versatile with
a strong “hands on” approach. From directing to DoP and editing,
Joël has a unique ability to capture emotions in their purest form.
