Nicolaas Schmidt lives and works as Gréyalisateur, Dozing Artist and Human Resource in Hamburg, Europe.
After apprenticeship and engagement as graphic designer in Leipzig, he studied Fine Arts (Mixed Media, Time Based Media and Film) at Hamburg Academy of Fine Arts HFBK Hamburg (at/with: please see progress/thankyou 0.3.1-0.4.0). In 2016 he graduated with honors.
His works are shown at international film festivals, exhibitions or other contingencies, sometimes they receive prizes.
He performs with various media and concepts. Main points of interest in time-based stuff are atmospheric long-term dramaturgies with repetitive elements of emotion, reduction, banality or subtle ambivalent radicalism. Some occasionally call this Visual Poetry or Romantic Conceptualism.
He is a founding member of VETO Film, EndJoy Entertainment and Eternaltrend, a production and distribution lab for audiovisual simplicities, that for example offers the color gradient online series "36000 Frames RGB". Currently he is available.
