NEWS: New songs

This week I've been working on new songs with Torre Florim (De Staat), Tjeerd Bomhof (Voisct), Tony, Lucas & Bobby (Tinmen and the Telephone), Leine, Stef van Es and Reyn Ouwehand. There are so many talented Dutch musicians/songwriters and I love working with them!

DIARY: Sallie Harmsen

It's 2005 I'm in the final year of Filmschool, I've written a screenplay for a short movie called 'Samson' and I'm looking for an actress.

I remember seeing a cute movie on tv called 'Snacken' (by David Lammers) with Sallie Harmsen in it and I thought that's the one! But I didn't know how to contact her.

The next day I see her in the supermarket!!! Of course I ask immediately if she want to act in my movie and she did.

She's now one of the upcoming actresses and I believe she will make it big time!

Also be aware of the other actor: Roemer Prins (in the movie he's 7) he's the one I wrote the script for, a natural talent!!

You can watch the film here.

NEWS: South Africa in a nutshell

Ofcourse you can't fit South Africa in a nutshell! And this trip has been too short to see
enough of this wonderful country, but I'll give you some highlights!

* The Workshop I did with the band at the Moses Mololekwa Arts foundation in the Township Tembisa, Johannesburg.
The children were all so talented, especially 16 year old sax player Siabonga. He learned how to play from a book from the library and by listening to jazz musicians. He's absolutely amazing!

* Performing at the "Joy of Jazz festival" in Johannesburg with Siabonga as our special guest.

* Performing at the Voorkamerfest in Darling in the livingroom of June and Francois on their beautiful farm with the million animals including a baby pig called Edward.
On the video (above) you see him walking through the living room.

* Performing in the township in Darling with a.o. Leine, Oleg Fateev and Fay Lovski!

* The Wildlife, the Food, the people and of course de Tafelberg in Cape Town!
