The Salt of the Earth

As soon as you’re done reading this, get your tickets here. This documentary is a must see for every human being, as it confronts us as a species with how we treat ourselves, each other, our planet and our fellow inhabitants here on Earth. There isn’t much more to say about it, other than that it has left us utterly speechless – and filled with inspiration. You have certainly seen Sebastião Salgado‘s work at some point in your life. He is renowned for the long-term projects he undertakes, devoting years at a time to documenting the story of a particular people or the evolution of a certain place. Go see.  read more

All those sunflowers

In this life, only one thing is for certain; no one here gets out alive. Which means we’ll inevitably all encounter the loss of a loved one. After which we’ll have to start anew. But we’ll find joy again. We’ll learn to go on and to appreciate life. And we’ll eventually even celebrate it. Capturing this thought has been one of our most wonderful projects, and has resulted in a short fiction film directed by Bram Schouw – with Sylvia Hoeks in the leading role. All those Sunflowers has finally seen its debut on the big screen. It premiered at the NFF (Dutch Film festival), was included to the NFF Year Selection and even ran in the Gouden Kalf competition. As from now, it’ll travel a string of film festivals all over the world and hopefully touch more hearts. Produced in cooperation with Hazazah Pictures and ID&T.

Het Geluid – Q-music

And it’s on. The search for the Sound – Het Geluid – is in full effect, baffling people every hour as the stakes are raised by incorrect descriptions. Although the game is simple as ever, the players become increasingly fanatic every year. So we had to gear the game up. Mattie & Wietze, helpful as they are, conduct a high speed chase on high altitude in order to discover what the Sound is. We upgraded Mattie & Wietze’s appearance, starting with their red suits and added some guts. We’ve never seen anyone hanging upside down from the top of a skyscraper as comfortable as Mattie. Held by his ankles. By Wietze. Directed by Marco Grandia.

We’ve been nominated for an ADCN award

Our work is nominated for an ADCN award! Which makes us very happy. Especially ’cause it’s a project we’re particularly proud of. It’s been a long and challenging process, which taught us a lot and brought us a lot. All Those Sunflowers is a short fiction film we’ve made with Bram Schouw for ID&T. It premiered September 2014 at the NFF (Dutch Film festival), was included to the NFF Year Selection and even ran in the Gouden Kalf competition. Fingers crossed!

We won an Esprix

It might have been the wind, something in the drinking water or sudden strikes of involuntary body movement causing vast amounts of people to tune in to Q-music at the time ‘Het Geluid’ was on air. We’ll never know for sure. Fact of the matter remains that people simply like het Geluid. It’s one of the most popular radio games in Dutch ether. Ever. Maybe our campaign might have helped a bit. There was no escaping and no mistaking it.
A bunch of people in a jury panel inevitably noticed too and decided to award us a prize for it. Which is cool. We’re very glad to have won an Esprix.

ID&T Documentary Celebrate Life

About twenty years ago, your average dance party was likely to be held on a desolated downtrodden piece of grass in the middle of nowhere. There’d be about a hundred people dancing to the wobbling beats from a shaky sound system and you were sipping lukewarm beer from a dented can, waiting for the cops to come and break it up. But that was before ID&T arrived at the scene. ID&T has cultivated the art of party organization to an almost science-fictional level and has turned electronic dance music into a worldwide flourishing industry. This short documentary, directed by Thijs Schreuder-Rinnooy Kan, captures the turbulent history of ID&T, its process of transformation and finally presents their vision on the future – to Celebrate Life with as many people as possible.

Worn wear – Patagonia

Patagonia is one of the few brands that understands its reason for existence, which is clearly captured in their latest project; Worn Wear. It is an exploration of quality – in the things we own and the lives we live. This short film takes you to an off-the-grid surf camp in Baja, Mexico; a family’s maple syrup harvest in Contoocook; an organic farm in Ojai, California; and into the lives of a champion skier, a National Geographic photographer, and a legendary alpinist. It also features interviews with Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard. Worn Wear is an invitation to celebrate the stuff you already own. More stories to be found here.

ID&T – Choose Tap Water

Water is easily taken for granted. You simply open up the tap and there it is; fresh ‘n clean. Or, when you’re easily bored, you can choose water from a variety of springs and different bottles and bubbles. The only thing we tend to overlook, is its polluting transportation and the growing amount of plastic waste floating around in our oceans. ID&T strives to offer fresh, filtered and free tap water at all their festivals and asked us to communicate this in an economic and understandable manner. We thought a simple, short animation would do the trick. Illustrations by Tim Boelaars and animated by David de Bruijne.
