By The Edge.Filmed and edited by Max Van Pelt.
Max and I were together in the north of the country on the island of Texel, during the summer of 2013, when we discovered this beautiful location. We were amazed by the landscape and the beauty of the light and so we stopped in our tracks to grasp this perfect opportunity. We simply improvised with movement, landscape, light and different shots.
This film is shot within a time period of only 30 minutes due to the limited time we had with the sun disappearing behind the dunes.
It explores the idea innocence and quiet maturity.
For a little bit of fun I created my own version of the video of ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams.
‘Gefeliciteerd’ means ‘Congratulations’ in Dutch, for I used the video to congratulate the grandparents of my boyfriend on their 60th Wedding Anniversary. The family requested I make a video to get all the guests at the celebration up and dancing…and I am proud to say that it worked!!
