We were invited by Carlos Sargedas of the Finisterra Arrábida Film Art & Tourism Festival to come to Sesimbra, Portugal. At the festival, our short film Venice: Pilgrimage of Modern Man won the second prize in the category Religious Tourism. We were very happy to travel to Portugal and accept this award.
During our trip we of course shot a lot of footage. We plan to make 3 short videos, the first being this one, showcasing some sights of the lovely host town of Sesimbra.
With this video we would also like to thank our hosts, colleagues and new friends we made at the festival.
To compliment our wide array of lenses, we bought the Samyang 12mm f/2.0 MFT lens. We took it for a spin around our city of Utrecht with the following results:
We recently made a promotional film for Dorpstuin Nunspeet, a communal allotment garden in the Dutch town of Nunspeet.
The video is in Dutch without subtitles.
To fans of James Joyce the date of June 16 is the known as Bloomsday. On this day the life and works of the Irish writer are celebrated all over the world, even here in the Netherlands.
This year we decided to contribute to the celebrations and made a short film based on the last sentence of his most famous work, Ulysses. The film was shown during the Bloomsday events in Utrecht and was very well received. Here is your chance to see it for yourself.
We made a promotional film for the Utrecht roller derby team, the Dom City Dolls. You can watch the video below. Please keep in mind that it is in Dutch without subtitles.
Our short film Venice: Pilgrimage of Modern Man received the 2nd prize in the category Religious Tourism at the 3rd annual Finisterra Arrabida Film Art & Tourism Festival. We were very honoured to accept this award and very happy to attend the festival, which was held from 7 – 11 May in Sesimbra, Portugal.
At the festival we saw some some good films, met great people, and enjoyed the hospitality, culture, food and surroundings. All in all, it was a wonderful experience.

Well, that was a nice surprise. After being contacted by the Finisterra Arrabida Film Art & Tourism Festival, we submitted our video Venice: Pilgrimage of Modern Man for consideration. To our joy, it was selected and we were invited to attend the festival. How could we say no to that?
The festival takes place from 7 – 11 May in Sesimbra, Portugal, and we will be there. Should anything interesting arise, we will of course keep you updated.
The video is uploaded on the festival’s Vimeo channel. Check out the channel for more interesting tourism videos.
For NieuwVers, a Dutch organisation dedicated to promoting sustainability in agriculture, we made this video about a strawberry tasting event.
Unfortunately for our international guests, the video is in Dutch and has no subtitles.
Our second Italian video is about Venice. We looked at the massive appeal the city has on people and compare it to a modern day pilgrimage.
About a year ago we shot some footage in Italy, resulting in two short videos.
The first of these is about the Casa di Giulietta, the house in Verona supposedly belonging to the family of Juliet from William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Despite the play and characters being fictional, the house has become a major tourist attraction, featuring a balcony and a bronze statue of Juliet. Legend has it that touching the statue’s right breast will grant you good luck in matters of love.
