I have been able to work on many great projects in 2023.
But the one that rose above everything was that I was able to participate in the new season of
THE STORY OF THE NETHERLANDS (Het Verhaal van Nederland). I was the Boom Operator.
With a great team we managed to achieve a great result.
So don't forget to watch it😉

Yesterday i graduated my Film course at the NAVB / Dutch Filmers Academy.
We had the viewings of the graduation mockumentary movies and we got feedback. Useful course.
Never too old to learn. You can always learn something new.
I got some good stuff out of it and happy with the end result of the movie. Will share it soon.
Last year i founded my own theatergroup called Playhouse. That year we did a play called The Portuguese Kid by John Patrick Shanley. This year we just finished a 2nd production called It's Raining Money by Sebastien Thiery.
I produced it, co-directed it and did the set design. Last 3 months we rehearsed it. June 17,30 and July 01 we performed it. On to the next play!
July 2022 i was part of the production that traveled to Italy to shoot the documentary The Underground Astronaut.
The end result is now online. Check it out HERE.
