Creative impression of the SISTA-Cup fencing tournament (sista-tournament.nl) on Sunday 27 January 2013 in Amsterdam.
Shot as a final exam project for the professional camera course (Vakopleiding Camera) at Open Studio Amsterdam (openstudio.nl). The assignment was to create a short 5 minute movie re: ‘competition’. In this video I have tried to capture the beautiful and powerful body language I have come to know when I was a fencer myself many years ago. Keeping the right distance at the right time is key in fencing and that, combined with the ‘faceless’ yet effective communication during a match, made me think of fencing as kind of a ballet of two.
A big thanks to the organisation and all of the participants of the Sista-Cup 2013. And of course a thank you to Open Studio Amsterdam, especially to Ben van Houter and Frans Hoeben (franshoeben.nl), for inspiring me to experiment :-)
Shot with Canon 7D & Zeiss 50mm 1.4.
