MitchelChannal
Creator and Developer 2010-2018
MitchelChannal is my first YouTube channel and first official project. It is still active today, but it's priority has been lowered in favor of new projects. In 2018 the channel has suspended all further plans and is in the process of being shut down.
Vraag Het Mitchel
Creator  2010-2011
The first show to launch on MitchelChannal. I would pick a random question and I would answer it. Nothing really special. It got cancelled in 2011 in favor of higher quality content.
MitchelChannal Games
Creator and Host  2011-2017 • With Dennis den Besten, Ruben Klijn & Jeroen Schmidt.
The gaming arm of my channel. It had several reboots. The channel got cancelled in 2017 due to us not being able to maintain the channel and the need to move on. The channel "Glorious Rigby" could be considered a spiritual successor to MCG.
Mitchel's Wijze Les
Creator  2013-2018
A spiritual successor to Vraag Het Mitchel. Every episode tackled a different subject. The show got cancelled in 2018 due to MitchelChannal's downsizing. Plans for season three has been scraped.
Crazy Is Crazy
Voice Actor  2014-2018 • With Mark Roosien
I did some voice acting for the YouTube Show. Mostly for the Red Universe episodes where I voice Alfred the Gnome and Red-Mitchel.
Altijd Raak
Video Producer  2014-2015 • With Diego Boin, Bjorn Ringnalda & Mark Roosien
I produced some video's for the channel. It was a collab with a couple other channels. It was short lived however. The channel was abandoned throughout 2015, leading to it's quiet cancellation at the end of that same year.
Glorious Rigby
Creator/Producer/Voice Actor  2017-Ongoing...
Glorious Rigby is one of the new projects that will replace MitchelChannal. GR is the first international channel, reaching audiences all over the world. The channel will be about an alien from outer space trying to make it big on YouTube. Eventually, more of his backstory will be unraveled as the channel goes on, giving the channel a whole second dimension and a mysterious vibe.
Ace & Andreas
Director/Writer/Compositing  2016 • With Fabio Steltenpohl
This is an unreleased stopmotion animation created by me and Fabio. The original script was about eight pages long. We suffered from production issues and eventually we dropped distribution. It might still be put online though. We're not sure at this point.
Travelbound
Director/Writer  2017 • With Conner Bottelier
This has been a passion project. We were in production of this short-film for about three months. Most of that time has been spend on writing the script and developing the characters. We shot the entire thing in one day. The decision was made to not make the short public. However, it will probably make it's way online somehow in the future.
Bone Crushers
Creator/Animator/Voice Actor  2017
Originally a project for the Vidme Green Screen Challenge, Bone Crushers is a compositing and voice acting project that is ongoing to this day. It is also one of the first full projects under the Mitchel's Workshop name. An extended version is in production with a bigger story, more voice actors and more polished visuals. Because of Vidme's closure at the end of 2017, the video has been moved to YouTube.
"Een Goed Gesprek" - Podcast
Editor and Co-Host  2018 • With Conner Bottelier, Erik Hendriks & Fabio Steltenpohl.
Me and several other people have created a podcast about the audio/visual industry covering everything from news to fun inside knowledge.

I edited all of the episodes except episode one.
