Yay Hitrecord mentioned me! I made an animation and posted it on Hitrecord one year ago. I was looking at video requests from Hitrecord and they used my animation as an example. How weird is that! Couldn’t believe it! Now I’m not officially in the show yet or anything. But the possibility is getting closer and closer. So the dancing figure in the opening and in the end of the video is my animation and also at 2 min 28 sec you can see more. I made it with TV Paint and I rotoscoped myself dancing. So it wasn’t any of the “dancers back in 2013” like they mentioned in the clip. It was me just dancing around on Beyonce music, because I move better to her music. So completely different than the Electric Loss song, but I made this animation before I even knew about this awesome song.
Funny how things turn out. The Penarium trailer I made for Selfmade Miracle lead me to working for Team17. The team that gave us Worms is publishing the awesome indie game “The Escapists” by Chris Davis. I was asked the do the game trailer and this is the result. Enjoy!
This summer Synchronize will have a outdoor screening on 7th of July 2014 at South Street Seaport in NYC. My Short will accompany the feature: The Karate Kid. I’m so excited! I wish I could be there, because I love outdoor cinema! Check out their website: http://www.southstreetseaport.com/events/
My old teacher from Utrecht School of the Arts (HKU) is giving a lecture and he selected some work from his former students. I felt honoured that he picked one of my films: Synchronize. Synchronize will be viewed at Cinetoko in The Hague on the 22th of november 2013. Cinetoko is Five. Cinetoko celebrates five years of fresh and at times unconventional film/audio-visual nights in The Hague by looking back at previous Cinetoko editions and looking forward to a party. The Cinetoko programme celebrates with 4 guest speakers in one night, a showreel of past speakers, a showcase of work by film students, and more audiovisual stuff. The evening will finish in the foyer of Korzo where the bar will be open, a guest DJ will play and a crowd of interesting people are going to help celebrate.

A public art exhibition at The Great Notss Show in Nottingham is playing Synchronize on a loop on a old TV. In a purpose built installation in the streets, which is very fitting for my film and I’m very grateful for Rachel Parry for exposing it! Check out her website here: http://littlewolfparade.com/ More info about The Great Notts Show:This year The Great Notts Show will be taking over the Nottingham Market Square, with plenty of food, drink, arts, crafts. Plus we have a Kitchen Demonstration Theatre that will be featuring a mixture of Michelin star chefs and some amazing home grown talent – along side this we have live bands on our stage which is being hosted by I’m Not From London.

My apologies for not posting for a while, but exactly one year ago I attended the Vimeo Film Festival Awards 2012 in NYC! Synchronize was a finalist in the Remix category along with 3 other filmmakers. I was very nervous and excited at the same time. Synchronize didn’t win, but the well deserved film Rear Window Timelapse by Jeff Desom won the award! I was too nervous anyway so I was relieved when the winner was announced. After the award show I met the people from Disposable Film Festival from San Francisco (see picture: I’m standing in the middle). They’ve helped me expose my film so I’m very grateful for them. Anyway it was a really cool experience at the Vimeo Awards. I was surprised how modest and nice everyone was. The after party was fancy, which took place at The Standard Hotel in East Village. It was at a penthouse with a beautiful view and at that moment I felt a little bit like a rockstar. XD Yaay!
