CTM PICTURES is the result of the recent merger of CTM Films and LEV Pictures, and is run by Denis Wigman and Sander Verdonk, combining over 30 years of experience in producing feature films and documentaries.
The strength of the relationship of Sander Verdonk and Denis Wigman lies in the unique combination of their talents. Denis, who is also the co-owner and CFO of CTM Entertainment, combines keen business acumen with over thirty years of experience in producing feature films internationally. Sander has quickly become one of the leading producers in the Netherlands through youthful zeal and a strong sense of what makes creativity stand out in the contemporary media landscape. Together they work with and nurture young talent as well as established writers and directors.
The projects initiated by CTM Pictures are characterized by originality and always with an eye for the commercial and international potential. This often leads to films with an artistic sensibility that appeal to a wide audience. To maximize audience activation, cross-media marketing concepts are developed as an extension of the concept behind the film and each is unique to the product.
