Check Out “Other,” My Metaphorical Short Starring Anna Drijver & Iris van Herpen couture

Creepy, sad and magical, ”Other” is a metaphorical short film that nobody can figure out the genre of. And I don’t mind! It’s its own little thing. I wrote, produced and directed it (all according to rules of course) during one of the first Corona lockdowns. Starring a transformed Anna Drijver (Undercover, Bride Flight) and featuring an amazing dress by the unparalleled Iris van Herpen, it premiered at Imagine Festival 2021. This self-funded project with a “budget” of 1500 euros stars all first-time child actors and was made possible by the entire cast and crew volunteering their time and talent. Interpretations vary wildly, and I love hearing them all.

So, go watch “Other” below and tell me: What did you get from it?

Behind The Scenes of Samson!

We had an amazing crew, a great atmosphere on set, and got 50% of our funding through generous donations of awesome people. To inspire you to create you own projects as well, here’s a little behind the scenes video of the making of Samson
