Evening Disease – now onlineJune 1 2011
Recently, I filmed 3 new music video’s for Lolly Jane Blue in Scotland. On the last evening of the intense 7-day shoot, we finished a little earlier than expected. But we just didn’t want to stop.
In a joyful hurry we decided to film this little bonus video (just a 2-taker) for the song Evening Disease; a song that has been on the web for a long time, but never got a video.
As soon as Lolly’s curls were ready, we ran outside to film in the last glimpses of daylight. I hope you enjoy this little moment as much as we did!
New ProjectsMay 2 2011
Stop the presses! White Swan was the last big video I released, all the way back in 2009. In 2010, I did an awesome video for Dutch singer Anouk, but unfortunately I was not aloud to share it with the world. But this year, I am finally making up for the long radio-silence!!!
I am incredibly excited to announce my new project Requiem 2019, which is a beautiful short film / music video. I’ll be co-directing the film with legendary actor Rutger Hauer – Blade Runner, Turks Fruit, Black Butterflies!
Long-time collaborator Lolly Jane Blue has recorded a beautiful track for the film. Check out the first snippets of info on the project here (go to time-code 11:38 – 12:42)
But that’s not all… In less than 2 weeks time, Lolly Jane Blue and myself will be flying out to Scotland with our long-time crew to film two new music video’s!
Keep your eyes out for 2011!
