Music by Peter Vandrie & Orel Tamuz

When we were filming our documentary Etgar Keret: Based on a True Story in Tel Aviv, I saw a guy that I still knew from Amsterdam sitting on a bench. It was Peter Vandrie, an amazing musician, who had just moved there with his Israeli girlfriend. We had a beer and I told him about our film about Etgar Keret. 'What? Keret? That's my favourite writer!' he said. 'Let me make the music for your film with my friend (who's also an amazing musician) Orel!' So they did, worked very hard on their funky tunes and the music fits the film really well! Peter will even come to Amsterdam to do a short live show at Het Ketelhuis. So don't miss it and make sure you buy your tickets fast here:…/ketelhuis-forum-etgar-keret-…/2057

I'm making a lot of sketches for what has to become an animation in the documentary on Etgar Keret. Bought a box of charcoal, paper and started drawing some kind of storyboard. Feels good!

Had a blast at Doker Film Festival! Got some really nice reactions and the audience was very interested and engaged. Also I brought my sister with me! Check her website here. She makes the best crazy costumes ever.

Designing 1000 Book Covers by Hand

Belgian Writer and friend Frederik Willem Daem wanted to design his own book cover, by writing down his name and the book title on all the 1000 copies of his book. I filmed him the entire day while he was working on it. It took him 12 long hours to complete this crazy job.
