Kevin Mannens, a Belgian native, originally pursued an academic career at the University of Leuven, where he received his MA in Philosophy. Due to a mind-boggling sequence of fortunate events, he regained consciousness and worked three years at the Alias|Wavefront (AW) European Support Centre as an application engineer. Traveling around Europe, Kevin worked with and trained AW clients such as Moving Picture Company, Double Negative, CFC, Cinesite and many more. Wanting a warmer climate and new professional challenges, Kevin moved to Manila, in the Philippines, for a job as Technical Director at ImagineAsia. He hasn’t looked back since and swears by his lifestyle as a lyrical vagabond, alternating between TD and SCUBA instructor, most recently in China, Malaysia, Philippines, New Zealand, Taiwan and Thailand. He is currently Technical Director at The Moving Picture Company in London. His feature film credits include: 10,000 BC and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.
