In 2016, Peet’s re-cut of Brian De Palma’s Raising Cain was elevated to Director’s Cut, after which he supervised its restoration for Blu-ray release. Out of Sync, his short fiction film starring Romijn Conen, Marieke de Kruijf and Beau van Erven Dorens, screened at numerous festivals worldwide, received an award in Milan and was elected Vimeo Staff Pick.

Between 2004 and 2008, Peet was the founding editor of 24LiesASecond, a now-defunct platform for provocative film criticism with an underdog bite. Peet’s movie-crazed comic strip Directorama, which Hollywood filmmaker Don Mancini called “Doonesbury for cineastes,” was serialized in Smallformat magazine.

Peet has been obsessively creative since a teenager; always drawing, writing, performing, composing songs or shooting shorts with his Dad’s Super-8 camera. In his twenties he was the singer in a funk band called Dirty Laundry and as Man After Midnight he continues to make music today. He studied Graphic Arts in Rotterdam and briefly worked as a copywriter and desktop publisher, before making the audiovisual switch to motion graphics and digital video editing.

Peet lives right in the heart of Holland with his wife, two sons, dog and cat. At the moment he’s working on his first feature film, a co-production of Tangerine Tree and EYE Filmmuseum, entitled When Forever Dies.
