He is also founding member of the 'RGB~Toysband', a collective of performers using electronic toys as instruments to play with in public spaces.
In film, Tom is active as a director, assistant director and production manager. He has worked on movies made by several filmmakers like Alain Berliner, Frédéric Fonteyne, Philippe Falardeau, Olivier Smolders, Jürgen Leth & Lars Von Trier. In the summer of 2009 he directed three short fiction films that are actually in post production.
In March 2017, iMAL and Packed start a two-year research collaboration funded by Innoviris, the Brussels Institute for Research and Innovation to develop methods, tools and services for the preservation of digital-born content, as well as their public access through a new kind of media library for digital artefacts.
