Filmmaking in times of a pandemic
We are all aware of the crazy situation the world is in. The pandemic has also changed and challenged me and my work. For my film and photography work this means that I have not done much for a few months, but also that I am quite busy now. Because I find it difficult that many people often do not know what is happening in the background, here is a small list of projects I am currently working on.
In February 2020, along with two other projects, I was selected for a development trajectory called Nije Eagen (new eyes). A partnership between Omrop Fryslân, Stichting Thuishaven and PLONS! Documentary film festival. The project I was selected with turned out not to be Corona proof. Now my new short documentary film Fan Blom Oant Bôle will premiere on 3 October on Plons! In the autumn he and the other two films will be shown on Omrop Fryslân's FryslânDok and NPO2 .
In September 2020 I was part of the crew of a short film called ALEX. My first fiction film and immediately in the role of assistant director and recording director. ALEX is Lisa's first fiction directing and ooh ooh what a movie. The film will premiere if the corona rules allow it.
I have finally started a project that I have wanted to make for a long time; a historical research family documentary podcast. The first trailer with a global idea was selected among the best ten trailers for the pitch of the podcast festival 2020. For the trailer click here!
The Oranjekoeke film, which I have been working on for the past year, finally has a producer; Marrit Greidanus! She will help me with the production side of making the film, but she will also help with contacts with possible broadcasters and funds.
