This advertisement for Earth Water was one of the graduation projects of the Dutch Film Academy. As Lennart studied Cinematography this project gave him the chance to put on the director's shoes, and see how they fit. The result tells the story of a streetwise - or maybe rather seawise - fisherman. His view on life remarkably tells what Earth Water is all about. Generatng a big change for the world by doing nothing really. Just changing the bottle of water you drink from. The film was realized with the support and critical advice of many professionals like the VCP and different production companies. Eventually it received the VCP Kodak Commercial Award for Best Student Commercial, and more important, was awarded with the Young Directors award at ADCN 2010.
