For all of you, maybe a bit late, but anyhow, I want to wish you all a happy new year. I’ve turned 22 myself, and started the year with a bang, as usual.
Now, I wanted to give an update on my latest projects, as it has been a while.
On the 5th of September, right in between the rehearsals for the play “Mens” (video shown in previous post), I was an extra in an upcoming Bollywood film called “Queen” (or maybe “Rani”?). I barely know anything about this film, except the fact that I had to play a party go-er in Paradiso Amsterdam.
Early October I was an extra as a ‘person shopping in an electronics store’ for a commercial of the electronics store Saturn. I still haven’t seen the commercial, but I can already guess that I, because I was way in the back, am not clearly visible.
Near the end of November I was called by someone from the crew of “Party Kidz” to be a ‘hooligan attacking someone’, because their first choice couldn’t make it for the shoot. That was quite the surprise. And it was also very different than ‘just being an extra’. This time there was an actual choreography to be learned, though not very advanced. The shoot took place around the EYE Museum in Amsterdam, at the other side of the IJ, which is the body of water behind Amsterdam Central Station. The shoot was during the nightly hours, from around 1 o’ clock in the night until somewhat 8 in the morning. It was very cold, and quite misty, too. I believe that the mist in the background, across the river, could make for an impressive look in the final result of the movie. We will see. “Party Kidz” is made as an educational mockumentary about the dangers of HIV infection amongst youth.
In the middle of December I was an extra as a ‘mechanic’ in a new hospital show called “Charlie” for Dutch television. This is about a nurse called Charlie who lives a double life. The first one is her professional and responsible day job-self, and the second life she has is that of a junkie who desperately needs her fix. She tries to balance her two lives…
And just recently I’ve been an extra as a football supporter in a new Dutch television show called “Danni Lowinski”. I believe it originated from Germany, where it already has two successful seasons, and the Belgian/Flemish adaptation is quite successful, too. Which has just been finished shooting, and will premiere in March 2013 on Belgian television. I’m still not sure as to when the Dutch version of Danni Lowinski will air. It’s about a woman called Danni Lowinski who finished her study to be a lawyer, but cannot find a job. She decides to place a stand in the mall and starts her own lawyer business.
