At Nuts & Bolts Film Company we provide storytellers with the nuts and bolts, meaning the essentials to produce their films and documentaries. The producers combine a young and energetic view on film and media with more than 40 years of experience within the film business. This strong collaboration started in 2013 at CTM Entertainment and is now continued in Nuts & Bolts Film Company.
What kind of films and documentaries do we produce?
We value quality over quantity, are looking for strong collaborations with filmmakers of various backgrounds and always work with an audience in mind. Most importantly, we produce films with people we believe in. Therefore filmgenres vary from drama, science fiction, comedy, youth or thriller. We strive to make films that move, shock or motivate; that reveal universal truth in individual human stories. In short, we want our films to move you.
With multiple family members working in film, this business had always caught her interest. But to broaden her horizon, she studied Business Administrations in Amsterdam and London. After graduating at the University of Westminster, she started working at a production company in Berlin. Being triggered by the film and entertainment business she entered a master program in audiovisual management at the Media Business School in Spain. From 2012 she began to work on several productions as a freelancer and from 2014 she became part of CTM Films (now called Nuts & Bolts), where she joined the family business and combined her love for the creative process of telling a story and the business side of making this happen.
After graduating in Law from Rotterdam’s Erasmus University in 1984, Denis Wigman became the Financial Manager of the City’s Lantaren Cinema. His first film production was A ZED AND TWO NOUGHTS by Peter Greenaway in 1985. From that moment on he has produced more than 65 films and had became specialised in setting up various (inter)national co-productions. In 2000 he started CTM Entertainment together with Bob Hubar and André de Raaff with subsidiaries active in music publishing, recorded music, artist management, TV production and film production. CTM grew out to be a large international company with offices in London, New York, Berlin, Brussels and The Netherlands. In 2017 he decided to stop the multi media activities and return to where he started, producing films.
Nynke studied marketing and corporate anthropology. Her studies, work experiences, travels and conversations with people have shaped her into a researcher with a passion for telling stories. In 2017 she started producing her first film NOW OR NEVER AGAIN, a short 15 minute documentary and winner of the Filmfonds Wildcard.
While producing this film she came into contact with Nuts and Bolts Film Company. In the spring of 2018 she joined the team as a producers assistant. Nynke loves the effects film can have from combining business and creativity, telling a story, making a change or simply putting a smile on someone’s face.
