Look for the differences… part two

Let’s do another one. Look for the differences between this video and this video (start the second video at 11.29 min). The intro of the first clip feels much faster, which prompted me to count the number of shots. Surprisingly, both clips have six shots before Heine starts to sing. For those interested, the first video has 32 shots while the second video ‘only’ has 28. For me, there’s a clear winner. Which video do you think is the best?

Start off with a bang

Sometimes, it’s good to start off with a bang… which is exactly what we did a couple of days ago. We started our Christmas Eve specials (four in total) with drums and a spectacular dance. For those interested, compare this video with the first four minutes of this video. Look for the differences (there are two ‘major’ ones).

I know which version I like most. How about you?

Kerstnachtdienst VBG Bethel Drachten 2012

It’s that time of the year again…

It’s the second year I have the opportunity of being director of the Christmas Eve specials at VBG Bethel Drachten. Last time, everything was new for me (watch it here). This time, I kinda know what’s coming. And it helps we have a rehearsal… uhm, three rehearsals I should say. Today, we had the so called technical rehearsal (see the picture above). Tomorrow, it’s time for the dress rehearsal and Sunday morning we have the general rehearsal.

For us, Christmas Eve comes early this year. It starts this Sunday, December 23rd, at 4PM with the first show. Later that day, we will have one more. And on the real Christmas Eve (the 24th), there are two more shows. Busy days, but I’m really excited about it.

And, before I forget… Merry Christmas to y’all!

Post Show Syndrome #festival316

One festival, 4000 people, hundreds of volunteers, seven bands, dozens of technicians and I was there being part of a great camera crew…

It’s been four days, but I guess I still suffer the Post Show Syndrome… luckily my next project starts tomorrow… Square 2012!

Christmas Eve

I didn’t plan on doing any more blogging in 2011, but… People who follow me on Facebook and/or Twitter know I directed the Christmas Eve special at Bethel Church Drachten (almost 6000 visitors spread over three services). I couldn’t resist but to upload a few video stills of the broadcast (these images are from the very first minute of the program). The stage design is just phenomenal!
