Project Inland Ice / Going North on television

vrijdag, juli 4th, 2008

The moment we (at least) all have been waiting for.
Coming Tuesday the Avro will start with the 5-episode series of the expedition. The have already made a really cool website on which you can find a lot of information about the series. There are extra video’s and an introduction video to all of us.
The process of the last two years have not always been so easy, but the result… just fabulous.

Voice over

woensdag, juni 4th, 2008

dscn09331.jpgJust 10 days back in Holland and again busy with the project. In a studio in Amstelveen, Henk Jan and I did the voice-over for the first part of the documentary. One of those things I didn’t expect to learn when I started the project. I found it difficult, but great to do. Speak a bit lower, a bit faster, more intonation, sing a bit, and speak in the microphone.

Expedition series on TV

woensdag, maart 26th, 2008

dsc00088.JPGLast night we met a team six people from the AVRO in a cosy brown pub in Utrecht. The AVRO is a Dutch public broadcasting company. They will broadcast a series of five 30-minute television programmes about the expedition. This is superdelux ! It will be broadcasted 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 August 2008 at Nederland-3 around 23:30.
The AVRO treated us on drinks and explained how we could help them making the series a success. It means we will have to do some more filming ourselves and assist them when necessary in drawing attention to the series. It’s now also possible to say a few words in Dutch (for the Dutch audience) which will help in filming those first shouts and cries when something exciting happens. The AVRO team looked like a fine group of people and we all have faith that the series will be great !

The teaser is shown on a climate conference

zaterdag, juni 30th, 2007

Humanitas organised an climate conference on “landgoed Horst” near Driebergen. The main topic was global warming. The film ‘An inconvenient truth’ from All Gore was shown. After this film, Henk-Jan spoke for approx 10 minutes about our plans on Greenland and our teaser was shown. After our teaser a Dutch weatherman Peter Timofeeff predicted the weather in the Netherlands in the year 2045. And explained what will happen in the next 40 years. He also showed the influence of the Greenland ice sheet on our day to day weather.

Contact with a documentary team

woensdag, augustus 9th, 2006

Contract signed with documentary teamFor the crossing of Greenland we need a big budget. This will mainly be raised by means of sponsors. And sponsors need visibility. We have decided to make a documentary about our crossing and the preparation. Most documentaries are about the crossing only. Or they are about the ascent of an mountain. Not many documentaries also include the preparation of 2 years in advance. Ours will! The first contact with a documentary team is established after an announcement on an internet forum. Further appointments will be made.
