A short film shot on Queens-day 2013 – the last Queens-day for a while. On the 30th of April 2013 HM Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands abdicated and left the throne for HM King Willem Alexander.
As usual with Queens-day, Amsterdam turned orange. With this years royal succession, the city was flooded with the Dutch armed forces, blazing in full ceremony glory.
Another short film -in the Amsterdam Snapshot Series- i made. Amsterdam turns orange for the World Cup 2010 Soccer Final, in which the Dutch national team made their presence (to no avail by the way). Now, for the EURO 2012, the city turns orange again while the team will have another shot at finals.
The Uur U refers to the H-Hour, the hour before final take-off/invasion/exams/finals (take your pick).
For some time now, i am working with moving pictures. Although most still experiments, i do not want to withhold this particular beautiful combination of the city of Amsterdam, mist and street singers.
