Here you can see some of the work I have done on documentaries over the last few years. Enjoy and if you have any questions, drop me a line.

Finding Tom Bombadil

Director: Joost de Loo
Renger Koning: Music composition.

Finding Tom Bombadil is a detective documentary about a man on a quest to find his favourite fiction character in the real world. The film tracks the early stages of this worldwide search for Tolkien’s most mysterious fantasy figure. Coincidences and chance encounters lead Joost van de Loo – a holistic detective helped by a host of volunteers, field researchers and advisers - to investigate candidates in Shetland, Germany, England, New Zealand, South Korea, Tanzania, Finland and the United States. After years of searching he realises that the search is only just beginning.

This video shows how Annette Scholten plays the Lame Sonore for 'Find Tom Bombadil'. It is a beautiful instrument that almost sounds like the voice of a Siren.

My Name is Nobody

Director: Denise Janzee
Renger Koning: Music composition.

Somewhere in a small restaurant in Rome, a photograph hangs on the wall. It’s an old, yellowed class photo which evokes nostalgia for bygone times.
Two of these boys would become very famous later: Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone. They were classmates. The photograph has become famous because of this, as well. In every film about Sergio Leone, in every interview with Ennio Morricone, this photograph is shown. But they don’t stand exactly next to each other; there is someone in between them. If you ask “and who is that?”, people are surprised: “That boy? No, we don’t know, that boy isn’t famous, he’s nobody.”
This film is about this boy.

Piet Hein Eek


Director: Niek Koppen
Renger Koning: Music composition.

For a long time, the slogan “Coming soon: Piet Hein Eek” was painted on the façade of the building in Eindhoven before the company opened its doors to the public in October 2010. This building is a dream for Piet Hein Eek and his best friend and business partner Nob Ruijgrok. The whole construction process comes together here; alongside a carpentry workshop, the building has a shop, showroom, gallery, event space and restaurant. Niek Koppen followed Piet Hein Eek from 2009 to 2016 closely in this eventful period. The film tells the story of two friends who built up a small empire that grew thanks to scrap wood. The rapid growth of the company and the challenges it brought, put pressure on their cooperation. In 2015, Piet Hein Eek and Nob Ruijgrok decided to go their own ways. Eek continued the company on his own and took a new path by starting to work for the Swedish giant IKEA.

Bezness as usual

Director: Alex Pitstra
Renger Koning: Music composition.

What is it like to be a child of a Tunisian playboy and a Dutch mother? Are expectations and cultures on both sides compatible?

Tom Wilson - I am Famous


Director: Ismaël Lotz
Renger Koning: Music composition.

A short documentary about artist Tom Wilson who became famous with his role as Biff in the Back to the Future films. Since then people sometimes come up to him and say 'I hate you!'.



Director: Lydia Tuinman
Renger Koning: Music composition.

Hafkenscheid is de titel van de documentaire die regisseuse Lydia Tuynman maakte over de Drentse kunstenaar Alfred Hafkenscheid ( 75). Hij gaat in de film voor het eerst in zijn leven verkennen waar de beelden die hij schildert vandaan komen. Het werk van Hafkenscheid doet in de verte denken aan de schilderijen van de Britse kunstenaar Francis Bacon waarin het menselijk tekort, vervreemding en eenzaamheid de boventoon voert.
