Karel Konings obtained his masters from the Catholic University of Leuven, where he majored in Chemical Engineering. Not being fulfilled with this career, he went to the Theatre Academy of Amsterdam (AHK) and learnt the craft of acting. This ignited an immense passion for portraying excentric characters: a shy boxer, a lovely business man, a fragile supermodel, a retired freedom fighter, a gangster with a conscience, ... Creating something real that connects with the audience.
During this period, he also sparked a passion for filmmaking and made his directorial and writing debut with 'CHARLIE Z'. The film is based on the internet troll Charlie Zelenoff, who acquired fifteen minutes of YouTube fame by challenging unexperienced boxers in the gym and then brutally beating them up. The movie played at a couple of film festivals in Belgium, The Netherlands and The UK.
Having acted, directed and written, he is now determined to combine these crafts and help other filmmakers and companies to bring their artwork to the next level. As an actor, director, and/or writer,... but mostly as a partner.
