ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Oliver de Lantsheere makes magic happen. Anywhere, anytime.
Born into a family of contemporary artists and from an early age was fully immersed in the visual arts culture. By age fifteen, he had explored temples in Northern India and museums across Europe and had already begun to develop a passion for working with people that wanted to create.
His filmmaking background is deeply-rooted in creative discipline; he studied both Animation and New Media at Parsons, where he developed his conceptual design process. This led to his proficiency in all aspects of filmmaking, and came to fruition in the professional world of video content networks and advertising solutions.
Oliver has twelve years of experience working as a Director/Producer and Media Strategist. He’s directed video content for major Broadcast Networks, such as MTV, Speed, Stars and Fuse, and Fortune 500 companies like Nielsen, Chanel, and Starwoods. He built multi-screen content networks from the ground up; notably Billboard Video, where he successfully boosted viewership from zero to half a billion views in only two years. He also designed and developed TrickMob, a user generated, curated, video learning tool with the goal of giving content a purpose through community and game.
Now, he aspires to create a call to action through cinematic video content and believes that this is best captured by building memorable stories inspired by great people.

A few words from Oliver...
"After a decade of steadily working in the prominent film industry in New York City and Los Angeles, I began to witness a shift in the relationship between traditional film, advertising companies and the modern day consumer. I had developed great respect for the process, especially for the people I’ve had the chance to work with and learn from. Yet, I still had a different dream consisting of a film production company that revolved around sharing and engaging authentic stories, while at the same time connecting brands with consumers.
I set out across the country in search for passionate, like-minded people living adventurous lifestyles with stories and visions to share with the world. Throughout my travels, I connected with so many beautifully diverse people and was inspired by their universal aspiration of the “American Dream”.
I landed in San Francisco and jumped head first into the tech start-up culture by building a video learning application. I gained experience networking with investors and saw firsthand the ups and downs of launching a new company. In the start-up world I observed the impact a well crafted video can have when conveying complex ideas to a large demographic, all in less than three minutes while simultaneously making an emotional connection with the audience. I quickly realized my heart was still in production and creating video content.
It was through a combination of deeply personal as well as professional experiences that led me to realize the deep impact of human moments captured and shared through video. The roller coaster that we call life has continued to remind me of the transformative power that can be carried through the camera into anyone's mind.
The video is the first real boost for all credible products or ideas. When you're ready for a video you're ready to share your vision with the world by bringing the experience of your brand straight to their screens.
As a filmmaker, my passion truly lies in creating with inspiring people, and my specific set of skills allows me to amplify those stories worth telling. There are so many people from all walks of life with something to teach or a story worth listening to and at Supernatural Factory we use our superpowers to inspire and influence through education and entertainment.
I resonated with the Bay Area’s precedence of innovation for human progress. It is here that new solutions are built on the crossroads of creativity and technology while bettering humanity. I was awed by the thriving creative center of revolutionary artists that call the Bay Area their home.
