One of the best brunches in #Ghent.

Most definitely the one with the best setting.

  1. The homeless woman scene of Julia Michaels' lyric video with the great Andrea Mentlikowski.

Can anyone guess where it was shot?

Side note: The guy walking by on the right is me. In every scene shot outside you have a guy walking around. Ans that was me. You can say I am the red thread in the story. Haha.

  1. The teenager scene with the incredible Jordon Draggon in Julia Michaels' lyric video.

Now that scene was a tricky one. First of all the room was from a toddler so we had to redress the whole thing. It was also shot during the day and the sun was blasting through the windows. Meaning we had to kill all external light sources. We used a tungsten 250w against a white wall on the right to give a little light on the scene and for the actor we just used the phone on the highest setting. Then I smoked the room #Riverdale style to give a softness to...Read more

  1. The second scene of the Issues lyric video for Julia Michaels had these two great actors in it: @afro.byrne and @jessicapryanka_ shot at @fernandezandwells. There was a french waitress that wanted tonsee the video when it got out. Well here it is.

This is actually the second time I use that location in a music video. It's just such a nice location, plus the people are friendly and the food is great.

So we shot this scene on our second day. Me and Marcus were knackered since we were up since 4am and had around 3hours of sleep. But the ...Read more

  1. The video I did for @imjmichaels' song "Issues" is finally out.

I'm gonna do a bts covering the different scenes in the video.

The concept of the video was to do a continous travel, left to right, passing over different issues. We couldn't have acchieved that without the @djiglobal' ronin. Everything was shot handheld with it, on a fs5 and a 35mm #Zeiss by @cgfilm. The opening shot and closing shot of the video was done during the sunrise on Primrose Hill. I love Primrose Hill. Picking the sunrise there, witj th...Read more

Cum horeca. Oh my god. It supplies products for restaurants, hotels and bars. Think about that. Next time you come to Ghent and are sleeping at a local hotel or eating at a local restaurant, that silverware you're using might come from these guys.

What were they thinking? "Oh, where do you store your meat?" - "In my brand new freezer, supplied by Cum Horeca" "That salt shaker really spreads thebsalt around, where did you get it?" - "Cum Horeca." My god, this is so wrong.

PS: Park in front of Cum Horeca and y...Read more

What a pleasure it was to shoot with the Ursa 4.6k. Beautiful image and grades so easily . I did encouter the "corrupt card error" on both cards. A workaround is to load your footage through thunderbolt instead of usb and the error will be gone.

Not entirely convinced with the Xeen lenses. They are robust and great to handle but the image quality compared with the Samyang cine lenses is minimal in my opinion.

But I'll give them another try.
