Tomas was born in London on April 16th 1980. He is son of architect Rem Koolhaas. In London, he worked at MTV UK and for TANK magazine where he was exposed to production, editing and experimental artistic photography techniques for the first time. With these two very different creative experiences ruminating, Tomas moved to Los Angeles to study cinematography. Tomas secured his first feature film job as a cinematographer straight out of film school. In the following twelve years Tomas worked all over the world but mainly in Hollywood shooting projects of all descriptions and types: art films, music videos, short films, narrative features and documentaries. “REM”is Tomas’s first foray as a feature film director.
