Thank You, Bicycle – A Personal Project
// A few months ago I was asked to do a keynote presentation about filmmaking and storytelling at the Dutch Mountain Film Festival, an annual outdoor sports festival in the Netherlands. The festival took place last weekend and had a mountain bike theme day for the first time this year, which is right up my alley of course. It was a great experience to tell about my work and passion to a group of people that were not only interested in the sports but also in the filmmaking process. I’ve recieved some very kind reactions that put a smile on my face and will definitely help to stay motivated (in the rare case I ever really need motivation).
To introduce myself and my work I wanted to put together something special, something that would really link filmmaking and the sport that brought me so much in life: riding bikes. I’ve been wanting to create this video for some time now and this seemed like the perfect moment. Coincidentally my company exists three years this week (HURRAY!), so it’s also a great moment to look back on the past years and go back to my roots if you like.
So without further ado, here’s my latest video: Thank You, Bicycle.
