    Heartfelt greetings

    Caspar Diederik

    Young man wakes up in a mediterranean never-never-land. He finds out instantly the primary and most important subject where it's all about....Food. He's made to understand the only way to survive this journey is to taste everything and never say no to any dish. He undertakes a voyage of discovery through this wonder world of tastes. Will he conquer gloriously all tastes that lie underneath these skies? Can he can return safely to where he came from?

    This tasty fairytale is based on the true experiences of the Digital Diary Team. 7 video artists cruised through the Italian region of Friuli Venezia Giulia to unveil it's local treasures. Digital Diary is a series of heartfelt tales from "the Boot" harvested on

    FVG short for Friuli Venezia Giulia is a beautiful region that lies in the north-east corner of Italy, just to the east of Venice-Veneto, bordering Slovenia and Austria, and with the Adriatic Sea along the southern coast. To get more inspiration go to

    I'd like to thank the people of FVG for their kindness and hospitality. You invited me into your homes and lives to share your story. Thank you for that from the bottom of my heart.
    Thank you guys of the team, the spirit, helping me out in various ways. Without you my video wouldn't have been the same. Thanks to the Cantforget it crew, organizing such a wonderful trip. Thanks to the board of FVG having dared to let me, crazy dutchman, make a video of your home lands :) Thanks to Blu Video for providing me a place to edit, early untill late. The biggest appreciation to my love Marianna that had patience and has been able to bear me, while editing this video, cancelling myself from every role a partner should have.

  2. This is Part Two to 'Dreaming It{aly}'

    I'm a shy, awkward guy. I was dropped in the middle of the wintry Italian alps of Friuli Venezia Giulia, left to wander and experience whatever lay ahead. I met stranger after stranger who greeted me with a glass of wine and open arms; smiles as big as the mountains we conquered. They took me on a journey I will never forget. The interest they had in making sure I got out of my shell and had the experience of my life is so unheard of. In such a short period of time these strangers became family, untangling my shy soul and packed in the audacious and inspiring life I have always been journeying toward. What a happy and beautiful people.

    Shot on the Canon 7D ( I don't know anything about lenses really. I just threw one on and ran around with it, hehe)

  3. A futuristic vision of a world after a catastrophic disaster. In this dark parable mutated limbs are looking for cooperation, but due to miscommunication this mission is doomed to fail.

    The storyline of The Origin of Creatures is based on one of the most well-known tales about collaboration, the Tower of Babel. This tale is transformed and twisted and is set in an imaginary future, after the world is hit by a catastrophe. Among the remains of a devastated city lives that what is left of humanity. Human bodies are divided into separated parts of the body and are fused to special beings. Together, these creatures form a colony, they can only survive when collaborating. In the rubble of destroyed buildings they are trying to build a nest as large and as high as possible, so that the colony’s queen gets enough sunlight to reproduce, but due to miscommunication this mission is doomed to fail.

  4. Early 2012, we started a journey to Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay and Southern Brazil in our old and rusty Landrover. Once again, we brought our DSLR cameras and some gear to capture every great moment of this trip. Lots of winds, emptiness, pampas, bustling cities, animals, deserts and waterfalls - all wrapped up in just under 6 min. Enjoy the ride!

    Thanks for the support...
