Before I start working with the D.O.P. I wanted to rewrite some of the scenes of ‘The Bird Can’t Fly’. Now it seems to be on the verge of really happening, I put all my effort in it.
At the same time in Amsterdam a workshop is held called ‘Stage and Screen Combat’, and as I put some serious fighting scenes in the film I join the classes, to learn as much as I can, even how to use weaponry that is not involved in my story.
Beside all this sticks, knives, swords and guns can you see my filmed Portrait of Maarten Treurniet’
