Mr. Majestic and the football from which a whole side ‘disappeared’.


Film project # 2
This project is a oneminute sketch we had to made as practice for a threeminuteshort  that will be our end film and will be graded in january.
So, I filmed and filmed and filmed when we took a trip to Barcelona. I used a photocamera (Fujifilm X10), so it wasn’t obvious for other people that I was filming. I think. Maybe some people were wondering why someone would be standing still for several minutes to take a picture.
The technique I used is like a lomography-style (photography), shooting from the hip, shooting while walking and just aiming in front of me.
From all the footage I created this first minute to start the story.

Going to the beach shows the start of a journey to the sea. How far will we come in just a minute...

Film project # 1
In this first project there were six of us. And all six of us had a job and a opinion. I wrote the script and passed it on to the next person. So it happened that someone became the actor, someone filmed, someone edited, someone took care of things, someone opened up her house as film hub, someone overlooked and someone found some great music. Then all six of us gave a little. And then it was ready.  And all six of us were happy.

We made a threeminuteshort
We are Van der Berg | Exel | Hoekstra | Quist | Spin and Untersalmberger.

What if all is done, all is remembered, all is lived.
Over and over. And still, you are here.
