Clip – School Is Cool!

School Is Cool vroeg me een ‘Lyric Video’ te regisseren voor hun single ‘Wide-Eyed & Wild-Eyed’.
Deadline was 2,5 weken later dus ik deed mijn best een interessant concept te bedenken dat productioneel niet te ingewikkeld was en rekening hield met het beperkte budget.

Gedraaid door mezelf op een RED EPIC. (met RED zoomlens 17-50mm)
Camera assistentie: Carolien Den Hond
Productie: Simon Kenens
Postproductie (montage, compositing, grading) door mezelf in Motion & Final Cut Pro.

Bye Bye Mama – fragment

Bij wijze van portfolio demonstratie: 2 fragmentjes uit de pilootaflevering van Bye Bye Mama. Het avontuurlijk reisprogramma dat ik maakte met mijn maat Yves.
Uitgezonden op één – september/oktober 2013.
Producent/copyright: Live Entertainment.

Fragment 1: Na een weekje Nieuw-Zeeland tikten we een campervan op de kop. We verkennen het prachtige land en in Queenstown – de adrenaline-hoofdstad van de wereld – voeren we onze eerste opdracht uit: Haal een snelheid van meer dan 80km/u zonder motorische aandrijving.
(Regie / Montage door mezelf.)

Fragment 2: Elk land dat we bezoeken krijgt een korte introductie in een kort filmpje vol animaties en found footage. Volgende introductie van Nieuw-Zeeland maakte ik zelf in Motion (apple).

Bye Bye Mama

Happiness!

In 2011-2012 I travelled for 8 months trough 8 different countries with my buddy Yves.
We took a camera with us and our 70 hours of footage are being edited in an 8 episode TV-show: Bye Bye Mama.
I am directing it (+ filming + voice over stuff etc…), the TV-Makers do the productional stuff and our editor Elke is also a huge help.

Aired on Flanders biggest tv-channel: één. First episode: 4 september 2013, 22:30.

Sunshine!

Your beloved friend is traveling and drinking ice teas.

Hi guys,

So, has been really silent here the last couple of months!
The reason for this is very simple: I’m traveling trough New-Zealand, Australia and South-East Asia. Follow our travel blog (only in dutch) HERE.
Therefore there’s nothing much happening professionally.

Big news though! My School Is Cool music video was nominated for a MIA, the Belgian Music Industry Awards.
Only four music videos selected so basically this means my video was one of the four best Belgian videos of the year 2011.
Quite nice huh? Especially since the competitors were big names like Gotye, Milow and Das Pop.
Gotye was the well deserved winner but, aren’t we all winners:)

And! The School Is Cool video was also selected for a JIMMIE , the awards of Belgian music channel JIM TV. (category: Best Music Video National)
Unforunately Milow’s video won, but of course I’m happy with the recognition!

Also Preacher got selected for the Insight Film Festival 2011 and the School Is Cool video for the Short Film Festival Leuven (music video competition).

I’m all back & available in Europe summer 2012. All refreshed and inspired! And with a nice tan.
