About me

Kenneth Mercken was a national amateur cycling champion in 2000. On his way of becoming a pro cyclist, he discovers that his body is not responding to the illegal, yet generally used performance enhancing drugs. A renowned cycling doc offers him the only solution; a permanent growth hormone therapy, which however implies a high risk of cancer. Disillusioned with the sport, he turns his back on his boyhood dream and on a whim, enrolls in a film school.


In 2011, he graduates from the Brussels film academy RITS with The Letter, a short film based on his cycling experiences. It wins him the VAF Wildcard and is screened in numeral international festivals. In 2012-13 he attends the Binger Writer's lab and the Script&Pitch program of Torino Filmlab to develop his debut fiction feature: Coureur. The project will be produced by Czar TV and is planned for the summer of 2015. Kenneth is signed on to Czar where he is currently undertaking his first steps in advertising.
