From FIFA to Mad Max – how big challenges motivate and inspire Julie van Damme from EuroConnection


Paris, Istanbul, New York, Mumbai…. – clients from all over the world come to Cape Town to work with Julie van Damme. Ambitious and dedicated, Julie was born in New York, has lived in Amsterdam and later set up her business in South Africa.

The executive producer and owner of production company EuroConnection, has managed many big projects, like a campaign featuring top soccer players during FIFA World Cup, and has built up a studio in the middle of a desert for a shoot with Abbey Lee Kershaw, one of the young stars from Mad Max: Fury Road. Hear all about it in this video interview.

One of the Julie’s success factors is keeping up with the trends. It is very important for her to stay motivated and inspired, and Julie and her team use Production Paradise as an office tool on a daily basis.

“Most of the new contacts that I found lately are from Production Paradise!”

Having international clients and working together with people from all over the world is not a easy job. Julie discovered the Showcase magazines many years ago and has been using them it in her daily work because it’s the easiest way to find professionals from the film and photo industry in every part of the world.

”Production Paradise is the best resource for me in our industry! I’m looking forward to many more years working with them. It just works – it’s direct, it’s creative and I like the team behind it, and the whole concept.”

It was a pleasure for us to have a sneak peek into EuroConnection office and to hear the backstage stories from Julie. Keep updated with EuroConnection’s new work on its website and through Showcase Cape Town Magazines.
