Tom Heene was born in Ghent, Belgium. He develops multidisciplinary projects in film and in digital arts and has worked with choreographers, visual artists, scientists, code artists on interactive environments using digital tools. The issues in Tom's work are about questioning the human relation with new media, data mining the internet, and creating new cinematic experiences.Tom worked as a production manager on several art exhibitions. He is also founding member of the 'RGB~Toysband', a collective of performers using electronic toys as instruments to play with in public spaces.
In film, Tom is active as a director, assistant director and production manager. He has worked on movies made by several filmmakers like Alain Berliner, Frédéric Fonteyne, Philippe Falardeau, Olivier Smolders, Jürgen Leth & Lars Von Trier. In the summer of 2009 he directed three short fiction films that are actually in post production.
