Trailrunning Krijtlandpad

Saturday, April 25, 2020

The Krijtlandpad is a regional pad of 90 kilometers in the southern province Limburg. We decided to cover the part from Eijsden to Valkenburg in two days, which is about 65 kilometers. We took it more as a small active holiday and a try-out to run with luggage than a race against the clock. This path has some scenic trails and goes through several villages. As a result it has a mix of trail paths and asphalt roads. Our backpacks weigh around 6,5kg, including food, water and extra clothes, so we decided to take is easy on the asphalt roads to reduce the impact on our knees and ankles.

I am always eager to learn more about video and photography so I asked the video producer in my company if I could help him out every now and then while shooting video content. This setup was rather simple yet very insightful. Two cameras, external microphone and light reflector. The wide angle shot is from my camera. The script is quite simple, yet we had to redo it quite some times to improve the intonation, wording, facial expression.

Just by helping along I already learned a lot of new things.

Studyportals Summer Event 2018 Aftermovie

Friday, July 6, 2018

A while ago my colleague (Roy Klaasse Bos) asked me if I was willing to help around shooting video content at the upcoming Summer Event form our work. I was not sure since I had not touched my camera since I returned from my sabbatical in July 2017. But on second thought I decided to remove the dust from my camera, reconfigure all the settings and give it a go!

I really enjoyed shooting video content with my camera. The raw footage looked already quite good and that encourages me to create more content.

Roy spent a lot of time on creating the After Movie based on our footage so all the kudos for editing goes to him. The original movie had some extra footage included which we only showed once to our colleagues. Curious how our colleagues responded to the extra footage? Watch it here!

Gear used:

  • Sony Alpha A6000
    • E 55–210 mm F4.5-6.3 OSS
    • E 35 mm F1.8 OSS
    • Sony ECM-XYST1M Stereo Microphone
  • GoPro HERO5
  • Nikon D5100
  • Canon D700

Bachelors party

Saturday, May 19, 2018

A friend of mine is getting married so we have to throw a bachelors party!

I was thinking about bringing my camera but decided to leave it at home and just bring the GoPro. This way I could enjoy the activities myself more and don't worry so much about the equipment (while getting drunk...). I didn't really think about creating a short movie, later on, I just tried to capture as much as possible.

The groom to be had no idea that we would pick him up on this day! The day was amazing and full of fun and energetic activities. The next day I started putting the video together in the mobile application Quick from GoPro. We played the video at the wedding party and it was perceived with a lot of smiles and laughter.

Urban Trail Eindhoven, Netherlands

Sunday, December 10, 2017

The Urban Trail run is about 10K through a lot of interesting places in a city. We choose to do the Urban Trail in our hometown, Eindhoven. There was a huge snowstorm planned but we couldn't really care. The 10K doesn't feel like 10K since you are all the time running through different places like a supermarket, museum, school, football stadium and so in. It's a fun run so no time pressure and everyone seems to enjoy it a bit more :).

The video is shot with my GoPro and edited on Adobe Premiere CC.
