Team up in Brussels
This month I was one of the lucky few to join the Young European Film Forum. With four other Dutch participants, I traveled to Brussels for 10 days of international teamwork. A total of 60 people in the age of 18 to 25 from 11 European countries were devided in teams to make a short documentary about cultural diversity.
This cultural diversity was not just in front of our cameras, but also behind it. Working together with different cultures was great, but sometimes difficult. Language barriers, diverse ways of working and contrasting expectations could make it a little frustating sometimes. But that made me learn a lot of people skills. And most of all we had lots of fun! In the end I am very proud of our documentary: ‘Le Globoflexeur.’ It tells the story of Jonathan, a balloon artist who lives a hard life in the streets of Brussels. Check it out:
