Commisioned film projects
Thijmen makes furniture
For a full day I followed Thijmen in his design process. He makes furniture, and does this mostly by hand. Therefore, his story is perfect to tell through film. From the drawing table to sawing and sanding the chairs he makes.
During a full film day Thijmen and me indicated his making process and started shooting. Both his ideas and stories about his work and my way of filming resulted in this 1,5-minute video.
SDG Spotlight Nederland commissioned me to make this video for communication purposes. SDG Spotlight Netherlands wants to show the progress in the Netherlands with regard to implementing Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) . Keeping a critical eye on promises and actual progress. The two themes: SDG 10 (Reduced Inequality) and SDG 15 (Life on Land) are visualised in the video making use of the music composed by Kate Honey. The interviews are in Dutch and are meant to personalize the two themes. Making use of the principle “ The most personal is the most universal”. This video is also used during the launch of SDG Spotlight on the 1st of March 2021.
