THE REEM SEASON 1
12 EPISODES OF VARIOUS LENGTH
The first season of the reem started in early 2010 as a experiment. After having finished the documentary Demolition Men which premiered at the IDFA 2006 (but was never released) I wanted to create a documentary in real time, editing parts of the story as they happened so together with the audience a film, the story comes together. Nobody knows how this is going to end, not the filmmaker nor the audience, which made it challenging and very exciting.
At the time youtube was gaining traction but still had its limitations with a max length of 10 minutes and vlogging was non existent, looking back it was pioneering and it worked. Alistair became one of the most prolific and high profile heavyweights outside of the UFC because of his accomplishments but also because fans were engaged in a way they never experienced before giving The Reem kind of a cult status within the fight scene.
The series are episodes of various lenght in black and white. The choice was made because I love black and white, and to make the grading process easier, faster and smooth out the various different lighting which comes with run and gun style filming. The format also gave me the freedom to explore area's I wanted to go musically, like using Hiphop B side instrumentals as soundtracks and having a overall freedom to create without producers, distributors or anyone having influence over the creative. As the episodes progressed I made it a sport to make every episode better than the last one, a workethic that still runs today as a way to train myself. This is where that all began.
ABOUT ALISTAIR OVEREEM
Alistair Overeem is a mixed martial artist from the Netherlands. He started out in the dutch fightscene (because of his brother who was already a big name in the sport) and quickly got traction in Japan where fighting was blowing up. Being talented and young, his brash style of fighting and impressive lanky physique made him quickly go up the ranks culminating in a 3rd place at the Pride light heavyweight tournament of 2005, still one of the most iconic fight tournaments in fighting history. After his run in Japan he moved over to the USA where he became Strikeforce heavyweight champion, went back to Japan where he became K-1 (kickboxing) champion winning the prestigious K-1 heavyweight Grand Prix defeating 3 men in one evening. This story is told in this first season of The Reem (here on the left). He later signed with the UFC where he still fights today, chasing the final belt missing on his wall: The UFC heavyweight title.

GLORY WORLD SERIES
Glory is the world's premiere kickboxing organisation with events all over the globe. As part of the online team I made documentary episodes and recaps of their events.
Story is what drives fight promotion, to get people engaged by telling the story of the fighters the fights themselves get meaning. Putting in the amount of work that fighters do, the evening where everything comes together, glory, devestation, being close to emotion where split seconds decide a lifetime of chances, that's where I wanted to be with my camera and Glory gave me that opportunity.

MYSTERYLAND & SENSATION
15 YEARS OF MYSTERYLAND DOCUMENTARY
I was approached by ID&T to make a documentary celebrating the 15th year history of the first and oldest electronic music festival in The Netherlands, Mysteryland. Starting out in 1993 they were pioneers in what would turn out to be a billion dollar industry (electronic music and the festivals). I dove into their archive footage and followed the creation of the 2008 edition. The documentary was released on DVD in 2009 and was aired on TV celebrating their 15th year aniversary. Mysterland still is one of the leading electronic music festivals of the Netherlands, spreading out to Chile and USA. It also is the mother of Tomorrowworld, which outgrew it's mother 10fold being one of the, if not leading electronic music festival in the world.
LOST & FOUND a Mysteryland movie
Being inspired by the festival I wanted to create short movie idea I had and Mysteryland gave me a small budget and all acces to make it work. The idea was someone waking up at a festival, looking for his lost belongings we see flashbacks of what transpired earlier and in doing so we experience his transformation from hardstyle, to hippy to finding love. Shot on RED and made with friends.
SENSATION INNERSPACE TRAILER
With my work for Mysteryland I caugh the eye of Sensation, the leading international dance event at the time. I pitched a edit for a idea they had, which eventually turned into the trailer for their new show, Innerspace. The concept was to follow the stages to enlightment as we progress trough the evening. The Innerspace show had a revolutionary ceiling with hunderds of computer controlled led spheres which transformed the stadium into something nobody had ever seen before, making it one of the most iconic shows in the series. The trailer concept, editing and music selection was done by me. Visuals were done at Storm Post production.

SENSATION PRESENTS INNERSPACE
Domperfilm is a sublabel with director and sound engineer Willem de Wijs. Together we document dying out dutch crafts and preserving them for future generations.
The first video tells the story of a farmer in the south of the Netherlands who is the last living man skilled in the art of Skjokkeren. Skjokkeren is a way of long disctance visual communication using the human body. It was used for centuries by farmers in the south to easily communicate on the flat fields of Holland.
The second video tells the story of a modern day sea sheperd, guiding his flocks of fish trough the tides of Sealand, a southern province of The Netherlands with extreme tides. Protecting them from the changing climate, murdering seals and global shipping the sheperd preserves fish populations neccesary for the fishgrounds and the ecosystem.
The third video tells the story of Hank and Jeppe Dussen. two brothers who try to perserve a forgotten measuring technique used in Schokland, Schokthrowing. Once a island, the now dried up Schokland is the birthplace of this middle aged technique in which islands where mapped and sediments were recorded.
These are mockumentaries and thus complete bullshit ;)
