Ilja founded Bureau NY with cinematographer and husband Remco Bikkers. Together they have decades of experience in television, documentary- and video productions. Originating from the Netherlands, Remco & Ilja have a firm understanding of the European way of filming, directing & producing. At the same time, after working in the US for almost a decade, they also gathered a profound knowledge of how to organize, film and realize projects in the US (and beyond). There is an extensive network not only of local crew, but also of interesting characters and locations.
