The most magical movie experiences are the ones where you say: this couldn't happen in real life, but it sure feels as if it could. Magic movie moments have a way of creeping under your skin, or setting your brain on fire. They have a way of making your everyday existence more magical, mysterious and mesmerizing. 

 

These are the kind of movie experiences that High-Concept-Films aims to create. High concept, human touch. Because a movie only becomes magical when it portrays tragic, funny and and awe-inspiring truths about what it means to be human. 

 

High-Concept-Films is a collective of movie lovers who were triggered to become creatives by watching The Twilight Zone and related content, stories that ask the most magical question there is: "What if..." 

Joggem Simons

founder, producer

25 years of high standards, a strong vision and the drive to make the impossible possible, has resulted in very diverse film/media productions, seen and produced around the world. 2 of his productions have won the prestigious Grawmeyer Award. La Commedia, by Louis Andriessen/Hal Hartley and Up-Close by Michel van der Aa. The website he produced for Nike, Nikefootball.com won a Lion Gran Prix in Cannes.

By setting up High-Concept-Films he wanted to put his full focus on scifi/drama. Stories that open your head and help you look at the world from a different perspective.

 

By reasons of flexibility and budget awareness, with the help of 25 years experience of managing productions, Joggem has created a way of producing with the smallest possible teams, keeping the high standards he strives for.

In these times of COVID-19, this experience comes in handy and can be put to full use.

 

“I wanted to become involved in film after watching The Twilight Zone in the 80’s.

 

Stories by High-Concept-Films are in that line.”

Tonnie Dinjens

"Recognizable people are put in extraordinary situations. This way they can't fall back on their usual and often predictable behaviour.

They will have to re-discover themselves and challenge their own (im)moralities."
