In summer 2013 I shot the footage for this video in HD PRO with a Panasonic P2 camera. Actually my wish was to make a touristic movie in an 'other way' these kind of video's were made traditionally. A few months later I start developing some proof edits, and after three try-outs I was more or less satisfied about the result.
Unfortunately, in January 2014, all disks, backups and camera's were stolen. So all the footage, the finished movie (and the footage from other movies) was gone. The only 'backup' that was left, was a low-res preview video in the cloud.
In May 2014 we shot some new scenes to reconstruct the movie, but like many professional colleagues, it was not satisfying to me to make the same edits and create a movie the same way I made earlier. The new result is created 'by accident'.
Due to the lack of the stolen footage, my whole plan to make a renewing movie broke up.
Of course the marketing manager needed the movie as soon as possible, regardless before summer 2015.
In such moments the dilemma of a film artist takes place:
Should he continue working on a renewing product and trespass the need of the commercial target of the movie, or make the 'edge cutting' choice to put aside his ambition and pushing the boundaries of his creative possibilities?
My decision in this case was very clear: Prior to all my ambitions and innovative wishes there is no other way than to create a movie that will do its work for my client.
In other words:
Put aside all narcissistic attributes and make the investment of the client becomes cost effective!
So, here it is...
