THE STATE OF THE GRASS

 

Director Rashel van der Schaaf has finished shooting her Teledoc Campus film THE STATE OF THE GRASS. The film is a co-production with AVROTROS. Camera: Marit Daams; drone: Jan Wich

logline: In The State of the Grass we look through the eyes of a hedgehog and a magpie at the battle that the Dutch engage in with the grass on their lawn; and thus indirectly the struggle with nature. Can this nature be tamed and what does that ultimately yield?

WEEPING BRIDES

Tom Tieman has received a development grant for his plan WEEPING BRIDES, also in the context of Teledoc Campus. The broadcaster concerned is KRO-NCRV.

Logline: Three dilapidated mansions reflect on their decay, transience and relationship with humans. How do people deal with the decay of heritage?

Tom is currently busy putting the finishing touches on the screenplay.
