Richard Oerlemans    

STOP! If U really want to live ur life with passion and loving what u do. You should find something that u always love to do and keep improving yourself. Ask yourself 1. 'What is result that you want?' 'What is the result what u are committed to?' 2. 'Why do u want it?' 'What's your purpose?'  3. 'What specific actions do I need to take?' 'What is ur massive action plan?' Ask yourself 'Am i willing to pay the price even if i don't know what the price is?' So if u have done that, you stand at the beginning of a great, wonderful and exciting adventure.
I personally am still learning, making my dream alive every day, which i started 25 years ago.

"Richard Oerlemans is talented, brave and courageous. An actor who is able to show vulnerability --unusual and exciting in most strongmen. He takes big risks and is always interesting to watch." 
Nancy Gabor Director, Actrice and Drama Teacher at Princeton University  and Amsterdam Theatre School.

"Ik heb de samenwerking met Richard Oerlemans als zeer plezierig ervaren. Hij wist precies wat er van hem verwacht werd en op subtiele wijze diepgang aan zijn karakter toe te voegen waardoor de korte film an sich naar een hoger plan werd getild."
Joris Dommels, regisseur Quest/commercial


"Voor de korte 'green screen' film 'Luctor' heb ik met buitengewoon veel plezier met Richard Oerlemans gewerkt. Zijn inzet en enthousiasme zijn ongevenaard; op momenten dat ik me bijkans schuldig begon te voelen omdat het allemaal zo lang duurde, liep Richard opgewekt rond en zorgde voor een goede sfeer op de set. Luctor werd geheel voor 'green screen' opgenomen; het was prettig te merken dat Richard de nodige verbeelding had om zich voor te stellen waar zijn karakter precies uithing. Een samenwerking die absoluut voor herhaling vatbaar is."
Ferry Piekart, Scenarist/Regisseur Luctor.

"I've worked with Richard as an actor/director and gotten to know Richard in both New York City and in Amsterdam, and I can make a few observations about Richard on both a personal and professional level. As an artist, and as a person, Richard is a very open, trusting, risk-taker. He has a curiosity about and a zest for life that is very striking to those around him. Richard  takes risks, to make choices that may surprise him as well as those around him. He is a very aware person; he constantly searches for the truth in his work and in his life. If Richard is unsure which path to take next, he is unafraid to take the risks necessary to achieving personal and artistic growth. Generous and giving to his friends, and open and curious in his work. He is sure to affect in a positive way all those with whom he works and plays. I am glad to call him a friend."
