My name is Ruby Cruden, an ambitious and experimental writer, filmmaker and photographer based in Amsterdam. In June 2017, I graduated in International Fashion and Branding at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. I like to describe myself as 'abstract', because for me, this is a terrific metaphor for always being in motion, not being defined by a standard shape. I continuously adjust and adapt in order to get the most out of myself and my abilities.
My strongest skills lie with journalism and filmmaking. I have been writing fictional stories since I was a child, this is where my passion for the art of writing originates from. My previous internship at i-D magazine helped me to achieve full understanding of the (online) magazine industry and how to put my skills into practice. In film, I am able to combine my passions writing and moving image. As a Director and Director of Photography, I strive to create otherworldly environments with a message that is applicable to today's society.
I am always looking forward for exciting collaborations, freelance jobs or other opportunities. Don't hesitate to get in touch!
