We are in the midst of telling ‘De Vogelwachter’ for the 3th time. I love this period in which everything is possible again. Wouter Jansen (the editor) and I are watching the takes and shots. We taste and test.
With de thousands of fragments of Freek de Jonge and the birds there are endless possibilities. We can make this film more comical or more tragic, more serious or hilarious. It’s all about finding the exact tone in the performance, so we can tell the ultimate story.
In his studio also Reyer Zwart the composer is working on the film. All the time we get bits and pieces which finds its way into the montage.
