Global Leadership Summit

Not so long ago, I was director at the 2011 Global Leadership Summit at Bethel Congress Center. I had the luck of having a professional photographer in my team. These pictures are the result.

Thanks Folkert!

Since yesterday this website has a new look. Based on data of Google Analytics I realized no-one really likes the (old) first page of my website (unless you’re a new visitor thus seeing it for the first time). I guess it makes more sense to turn the blog into homepage. Doing so, I wanted to start fresh, resulting in this new look.

Because I had to ‘re-do’ my portfolio (which is already completed by now), I came across many of my old renderings. Many of these renderings aren’t used in my portfolio. Above, you’ll see the rendering of the Bethel auditorium. Seating 3000 people. I used this rendering in my portfolio. Below are three renderings of the same auditorium. Each from a different position in the auditorium. These are not included in my portfolio. Nonetheless, I would like to share them with you.

This is not the design used in the most recent developments of mega church Bethel. These renderings represent a conceptual design which dates back to 2008.

This is a video still of yesterday’s broadcast at Bethel Drachten. And yes, the arrow points to me. Sitting in the control room.

News Studio 1

News Studio @ Square 2011

During the past four days I was part of a seven-member news crew of the (not really existing) Drachten News. We reported for and from the youth-event Square 2011 which had an attendance of over 600 people.

Who’s ‘we’?! We’re two camera operators, an editor, a reporter and two news anchors. I was camera operator and part of the ENG crew. We made a total of four news shows of about 6-7 minutes each.

During the next weeks I’ll probably write a little more on what I did, saw and experienced. For now, I just want to share some pictures of the News Studio. From this studio, the two anchors presented the news and it’s where the editing took place.
