This month i followed the Sound Course at the Open Studio, Amsterdam. It has been very informative and fun. Now me and my buddy started W.I.T. Productions. Website to be released soon. We will make new content every month.
At this point in my career i am developing myself as a filmmaker. At this point i focus mainly on being a boom operator. In June i'm following a sound course. And last weekend i recorded a first commercial.
In this commercial i recorded the sound, did the film clapper, produced and co-wrote a scenario, runner and set dressing. I was also one of the actors. The commercial should be online in a few weeks.
For now i have been cast in a new Theaterplay called “THE PLAYGIRL OF THE WESTERN IRISH COAST”
The original title is The Playboy of the western Irish Coast. In this play i will perform Jimmy Farrell.
The shows will be performed on June 12,18,19,20 at the Badhuistheater in Amsterdam.

This week i also had a part as Toffe Piet in a new Sinterklaas Movie to be released later this year.
Last year i played in a few series. The biggest one was a reconstruction series called Zaak van je leven. In that show i played a guy in the american ambassade. I also did a few comedy series. And one Drama serie called Thuisfront and a Saint Nicholas Photoshoot. Not a busy year because of Covid-19. Hopefully this year it will pick up.
Last July and August we did a crossover episode with Blackadder and ALLO ALLO. In Black Adder i played Captain Darling and in ALLO ALLO i played Colonel von Strohm. The July shows were in the Badhuistheater. The August shows were in Camping Zeeburg in Amsterdam.
Last September i played in a Crossover Theaterplay at the Badhuistheater in Amsterdam. In ALLO ALLO i played Colonel von Strohm and in Dad's Army i played Wilson. It was a lot of fun and SOLD OUT shows.
Right now i am rehearsing ALLO ALLO and Dad's army for the Theater. The shows will be performed at the Badhuistheater in Amsterdam. Dates : July 2020.
In ALLO ALLO i play Colonel von Strohm. In Dad's army i play Wilson. More info and dates on http://www.badhuistheater.nl/
Theater has start again for me. In January and February we rehearsed an evening of One Acts. We performed these plays on Feburary 19,20,26,27 in Amsterdam. I played Phil in a short play called The Seven Men Of Hanukkah. Written by Sharon Cooper. Story : Stephanie loves animals. Phil hasn’t gone to an audition in a long time and isn’t so sure that he’s at one now. So where the hell is this story going?
As always i have learned a lot and had a lot of fun!
Had a great time the last two months rehearsing this play. Don't Dress for Dinner by Marc Camoletti. Fantastic group of friends to work with. You can really trust each other on stage and that's why magic happens. I'm gonna miss performing this show. We did four performances this week. I hope you have seen it. For the people who have seen it, thank you so much for coming! Keep updated on new Downstage Left Amsterdam productions on our Facebook page.
