Prosper de Roos (documentary maker and philosopher) mixes disciplines. He teaches, writes and produces features for podcast, film and crossmedia. Prosper explores stories at the intersection of man, society, nature and philosophy.
A recurring theme in his work is the ever-shifting boundary between human and non-human. The tortuous affair of man, nature and technology. Connected to this lumpy knot are stories and ideals that influence how we perceive the world. Narratives and ideologies give meaning, encourage and mislead.
Prosper teaches, coaches and advises on philosophy and storytelling in podcast and film. From participatory DIY workshops, lectures to philosophical walks. His philosophical interests include humanism, ecology and the art of living. His storytelling expertise centers on audio storytelling (podcast) and film. How do you tell a compelling story?
