How it all started 

After competing professionally for nine years, Margriet de Schutter ended her career as a short track speed skater in March 2010 (after the Vancouver Olympics). In order to avoid falling into a black hole, she resumed the last year of her degree in International Communication and decided to specialise in Media Studies at Hanze University of Applied Sciences in Groningen, the Netherlands. She soon discovered her love of making documentaries, and decided to focus on that for her graduation project.
