Louisa Jansen Van Nieuwenhuizen

Design // Props // Decor

After obtaining my National Diploma in Clothing Design and Arts at the Technicon of Pretoria, I moved to Cape Town where I started my career in
film (1995).  I moved back to Johannesburg in 2007, to explore and experience more in the field.
I am responsible for handling and coordinating visual and realistic illusions. Always the mystery of film making and the ‘romance’ associated with the world of glamour. Putting up sets, doing flowers, creating a space that for that moment in time a viewer/guest will feel as if they are in a complete different world created just for them.

Creating a moment in time that will last a lifetime. I have a very hands on way of working and do not hesitate to jump in and get my hands dirty. I am comfortable with using tools and power tools if need be. I have a very lateral way of thinking – this I can often see the potential of an item made for use of one thing, but if applied in a different way it will serve a complete different image and fresh idea. I am capable to think on my feet and deal with a “crisis” in a calm logic manner. There is always an item right in arm reach that will take care of it.
