2 0 1 3 / THE END

 photo TheGreatWillowTree2014.jpg


Normally I'm not one for getting sentimental at the end of the year. This year however is a bit different. I've received a lot of support from some lovely friends. This overwhelms me and makes me thankful.
So on this last day of 2013 I've let them know they meant a lot to me this year and I greatly appreciate their friendship.

Nb. This is also the end of this blog. I started a 365 project over here: ZICHT
It's more focussed on photography and less personal.

t h i n g s I m a k e / another trailer!



Friday a week ago I had a meeting with Adentro for another trailer. They haven't made the performance yet, but wanted something that showed their ideas. On Sunday night we were cutting cardboard creatures and Tuesday we spend in a cold park, taking photo after photo after photo. Yesterday, precisely a week later, the trailer was done! Here it is.
I love doing stop motion and wanted to make some more stop motion clips, so when the idea came during our meeting I was all in. That's already one thing of my end-of-the-year list! I have some more to cross off, but will do that another time.

t h i n g s I m a k e / a trailer

I made this trailer for one of the very first groups I work with, Danstheater Adentro. I've been photographing and now also filming them for years. I love this new performance about a girl from the luxurious West and a Cuban boy and their little love story.
I hope you enjoy it.

I've been making more and more trailers and little videos. I love the medium and get a lot of feedback from people who have seen my videos. It feels good and I'm really curious where it'll bring me. I'm totally self-taught in making videos and editing them; hurray for the internet and youtube to learn about editing programs and the right way to use your camera.

Let's play catch-up, shall we!
I've got so many pictures to post and adventures to tell bits about. First some more pictures from Berlin. I really kick myself for not taking more photos, but I can always go back and be a real tourist. Here are some fond memories.

v i d e o d i a r y / 3

I loved making this video. It was an amazing day with a big picnic and a parade and bonfire to push it over the top. My dear friends from Pretvormer make all these beautiful costumes, build dragons with kids and lights them on fire.

p h o t o d i a r y / 3

It's been a long long time since my last update. I've been busy, I've been on vacation and I've had an exposition with my video installation. All very exciting and will share more on it in the near future.
But first some pictures I took last night. Autumn nights are nice and cozy.
