Me and my theatergroup are working together with another theatergroup called Inplayers International Drama Group Amsterdam. We are putting on a new play end of November / Beginning of December.
It's called The Surprise Guest. (“Les Belles Soeurs”) by Eric Assous.
Synopsis of the Play:

Im producing the play and Co-directing it. Also helping out with the set design.
I recorded the sound last year for 48 hours film project Amsterdam. The movie was called ''Doe eens mens'' or ''Act Human'' in English. Check it out.

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.
One year ago i recorded the sound for company videos for the company Slootsmid.
CLICK HERE to see the end result.
June 18 i was directing and being the D.O.P. for our short Mockumentary school exam movie end project.
And June 22 we had our 2nd and final day. I was mostly the First AD that day, but i also filmed a bit, helped with the lights, set dressing and did the Sound for a scene. Fun group of folks to work with.
Now we will enter post production where i will also help out with editing.
This week i have been working with a great group of people on a very impressive short movie.
