My guys over at #melroy invited me to host all 3 stages at Vland festival in walibi flevo
themepark this week. The artwork was great to work with and we spent really a lot of time
working with this (cinema4d) 3d artwork from veronica to create some great stuff!! Marcel
LSSLSS really helped a lot on this too. With Marcel rocking the house stage, Sibe (not-def) on
the PRESIDENT (eclectic) stage and myself on the mainstage…dang…thats a lot of visuals we
produced over a week’s time…seriously. Veronica has got this on lockdown.
Mainstage hightlights being Buraka som sistema, chef’s special, typhoon and yellow claw…
For the other stages: Ronnie Flex, shermanology, gregor salto, je broer and mr polska.

Every year QDANCE hosts a major new year’s celebration in the ziggo dome in Amsterdam
called freaqshow. This year KBK asked LSSLSS and myself to create all the 9 timecode
show visuals and all the mapped deco content for them for this night. We created all these new
and unique visuals in little over 2 weeks…an immense feat. We created close to an hour of
absolute synched timecode visuals.

Below you can see the results, we are quite happy with them. Actully..the show was frigging
amazing…thanks Joris for kicking butt with our stuff…

post Video for black hole recordings

February 7th, 2013

Filed under: misc., commercial, film/animation — dirty @ 6:49 pm

Ever since i stopped working with Ferry Costen after the Once upon a night tour
i kind of stopped doing trance all together. My partner and colleague Marcel /LSSLSS
however kept on working in the trance scene full throttle, making lots of visuals for lots of artists.
He’s doing a lot of lyric videos for black hole recordings among others…and sometimes
i help with the deadline. This one also needed to be done fast, i had 1 day to finish this one…

This one by Garmiani & Salvatore Ganacci is called the city is mine and it’s about
Stockholm…so i wanted to use images from the city without giving away that its
Stockholm too soon…also i wanted to play with the lyrics and graphic elements a bit.

post VJing with Zuilens Fanfare Orkest

January 7th, 2012

Filed under: VJ, misc., film/animation — dirty @ 8:00 pm


This was definately one of the strangest requests i ever got from a client.
This time the Royal Zuilens Fanfare Orchestra asked Marcel (LSSLSS) and
me to remix and vj scenes from famous movies they were playing the soundtracks of.
To us this was a pretty big thing…mocking about with the works of Morricone and
Spielberg for instance we don’t take lightly! In the end we played uber classics such as
Jurassic Park, Mary Poppins, Back to the Future, Last of the Mohicans, Schindler’s list,
Saturday Night Fever, Rocky and more….

The whole production team and the orchestra were so cool and serious about doing the show right
so Marcel and me were stoked to do this thing right…all i can say…it was really a great way
to start off 2012 with this show. Actually even just playing in an actual theatre where people
sit down to see you perform was already such a welcome difference!

post Visuals for Björn Borg 2011 collection show.

Marcel from LSSLSS and me were asked to come up with some fresh motion graphics for the
2011 collection show of Björn Borg over at the Endemol studio’s in Amsterdam. With less then
a week to go we were really happy the Borgdudes from Sweden sent us the original patterns
from the underwear to get funky with. With special musical guest Mark Ronson & the Business Intl.
hosting a very special guest appearance from Boy George we now had all the ingredients to rock
out the show. We created 30 minutes of new visuals for this show, specially for the 3 part LED setup
cooked up by DNA, Unlimited and Hulskamp. In the end we also co-piloted the operating together with
Hulskamp to make sure the timing came correct. Awesome show, definitely one for the books!

post TV Feature@101TV’s VJs&DJs

Through Amsterdam based motion designer and VJ, Rick Robin, i was introduced to the guys at
101TV who wanted me to do a feature with an amsterdam based producer.
It included interviews with us both nicely done by Eva Bartels and it shows our recorded AV-liveset.
Since i didn’t know Daniel and everything was freestyled i was pretty happy with the result,
we went deep…really deep.

post NYELF fotoshoot

October 12th, 2010

Filed under: VJ, misc., commercial, film/animation — dirty @ 10:00 pm

The guys from sfeer asked me to do visuals for their epic new years bash called “new year’s elf”.
Its sort of a joke as eleven in dutch means elf. The style should be mystical and magical so we
ended up doing a film and fotoshoot in the forest at night with a girl as elf-model, a lightsetup
on a generator, a hairgay, Freek as gaffer and joost Z. as art-director. It was a good chance to
try my new CANON EOS 550D! With a proper lens, this thing is a beast!
After Joost finished the poster, i made the teaser. Both can be found on the event website!

post Video for Yuri Kane-Right Back

Filed under: commercial, film/animation — dirty @ 3:00 pm

With the release of Once Upon A Night, LSSLSS and me were pressed for
time to finish all the visuals for the tour that had just started. When
Flashover Recordings asked us to visualsize the main single of the cd into
a PV, we were looking for inspiration. And after the first version was rejected
we wanted to make a really beautiful classical style trance clip and we opted
to use stock materials and rework and edit those as tight as possible.
It was a new thing for me to use stock…but i think we managed to do a good job in making
a real old-school trance clip. And…we’re proud to say it’s got over 1.6 million hits.

post Visuals for OUAN worldtour

March 31st, 2010

Filed under: VJ, misc., commercial, film/animation — dirty @ 3:00 pm


Together with Rotterdam based motiongraphics designer LSSLSS we were asked by Ferry Corsten’s
management to come up with a concept for Ferry’s new mix CD-compilation called “ONCE UPON
A NIGHT” or OUAN for short…we tagged along for the initial fotoshoots for the album artwork just
to get an initial idea and form concept in december 2009 and started production in February 2010.
With a lot of greenscreen shots, fully animated tracks, enourmously technically challenging
themed backplates, citynames, branding, shoutouts, plus a complete loop-library this was an
enourmous workload and we were happy to finish with the conclusion that there were no real
weak points in our visuals and the coherent visual style for the 4 hours of visuals we created.


With part 2 of OUAN out now, Ferry Corsten will continue touring with our visuals
until the end of 2011.

Continental gallery in LA. Participating artists: lukas gansterer, matthias koenigswieser,
joseph kosir, ulrich nausner, thomas rhube, clemens wolf.


For this exhibition i made a video piece called untitled/vertical which you can see below.

Lukas made a short video showing the whole exhibition.


This foto was taken at our second opening during the LA artwalk, more then 2000 people showed up.
In the end the security even had to step in when things got rowdy. It was a lot of fun
Going to LA…USA is so different from Holland.

Independant filmmaker Irene van der Top asked us to feature as actors in her new short film project “ID-CASTING”. Since i got to run around with a mini camera attached to my head attached to a DV recorder in my backback i said YES! immediately… The film was shown at several festivals including the ShootMe filmfestival 2007.

post Full feature at VPRO NACHTPODIUM

January 28th, 2005

Filed under: VJ, art, misc., film/animation — dirty @ 12:00 am

Famous Dutch rave/breakcore producer FFF and myself were asked to do a full audiovisual liveset in the basement of the VPRO TVstudio in Hilversum. This as part of a feature about VJ-ing on a show called “Nachtpodium”. We installed our equipment and killed the spot with an all-out assault of completely cut-up terror in sound and visuals. I.a.w. we had a blast…i consider this one of our best live gigs ever. The show was aired on 28 januari 2005 and i got calls from people allover that said that couldnt watch the show because their TVset just BROKE DOWN! Check here for some text about the show over at vpro. Then here is a link to the vprowebsite where you can click on the left to see some of the footage. FFF cut up our part of the show into 4 pieces here:


post Nachtpodium bumper VPRO Nederland3

November 20th, 2004

Filed under: art, misc., film/animation — dirty @ 12:00 pm


This is a bumper by Dutch film maker Irene van der Top made for the TV program “Nachtpodium” for infamous (or should i say famous?) Dutch national TV broadcaster VPRO. This bumper was aired in 2004/2005. Here i was asked to give my opinion as to what is “GOOD TELEVISION”. The image on the TV is a talkshow taken from the VPRO archive. AT the end of the session the TV exploded and there was fire and rubble everywhere. Also the floor was covered with paint (i even wrote text on the floor with spraypaint and put THAT on fire!). It was very fun to do. The site is in a building at the now famous JAVAKADE in Amsterdam. Check it out here:
