SHORT FILMS

I have also directed and co-written a couple of short films. One day I asked on facebook who was keen to shoot a short film with me. To my surprise it resulted in creating a lot of projects with a team we created called ‘Take23’ that got bigger and more varied every year.

SUPERZERO

Superzero is a short film that we made with Take23, during the 48hours competition.

A competition in which you have to write, shoot and finalise a short film within 48 hours. During the competition there are 3 ingredients that everyone has to use. In this case they were: A passport as a prop. A cook called ‘Jacques Castelijn’. The sentence was “Pretty cool for the first time.” and our theme was ‘Superheroes’. It is my favourite.

LESTICA

‘The Amazing Lestica Story’, was a short film that was part of a theatre show that I wrote and played in.

There is a travelling theatre festival called “de Parade”. A lot of big and small tents travelling from city to city entertaining their visitors with theatre, music and food. One day I decided to write a theatre show about an old circus and proposed it to them. To my big surprise we were playing it, in one of the biggest tents at “de Parade”, the year after.

We presented it as a live-documentary about a circus from 1936. Unbeknowst to the audience, the performers would walk out of the film and performed ‘stunts’ on stage. We shot a nine minute film about the fictitious circus “Lestica” with the take23 crew.  The audience totally believed it, until we started walking out of the screen. The ‘stunts’ we did, were actually magic tricks disguised as dangerous stunts. I got my first magic kit when I was ten, so that is when I started doing magic. I have been walking around with a deck of cards in my pocket for the last twenty five years.

UNFORGETTABLE

Unforgettable was our most succesfull entry during the 48hours competition.

A story of a dementing grandfather telling the story of his daughter’s wedding to his grandaughter We placed first from among the 6000 entries. We also won best costumes, best writing and best directing. So, take a cup of tea, five minutes of your time and do yourself a favor and watch it.

POP!

Pop! is another short that we made with take23, during the 48 hours competition.

I like the akwarness of clowns and high school movies. So, why not combine them and have someone jump of the roof on top of that!

COVID CRIMINALS

 

During the Covid19-period we made “Covid Criminals”.

I was walking through Amsterdam and suddenly wondered what the criminals were during. So we got together with the Take23 writers and wrote five episodes of two minutes each. Here is all five of them in a row!
