It has been a while since my last Ik en Emma post, but we’ve accomplished a lot since! We’ve been to several locations and took some kick-ass footage! I must say I’ve missed a few days, which I regret. While the crew did their best to create an awesome film, I spend my day waiting for school to end and wondering what I was missing out on, which included cute puppies at the set… thank you very much mr. ROC.
Anyhow, I’ll fill you in on the events I’ve witnessed. But first I’ll have to ask you to watch this marvelous video. It includes a select few of the many pictures taken at the scene! Enjoy…
Day 4: Arnhem
I mentioned this particular day in my last Ik en Emma post, but didn’t tell you much. Not that I’m planning to do so now, just a tiny bit more. The fourth day took place in Arnhem. A very awesome cafe to be specific, and if you pay close attention to the first couple of photo’s you’ll actually know which cafe! We spent most of that day in the cafe but we transferred to various locations round about the shopping center of Arnhem. Starting at Jeroen’s place in order to enjoy a very tasty lunch, which included frikandellen and kroketten! Tim and I took off at 19:00 PM but some of the cast and crew didn’t stop till way past midnight, diehards!
Day 5: ?
I didn’t attend this one so I can’t possibly tell you about it.
Day 6: Nijmegen
This day took place on a monday, but fortunately school decided this would be a good to give us a day off. great! So I went to Nijmegen and arrived at an very nice apartment. I instantly loved it! We did a lot of redecorating between shots that day, which was nice. Alex left early to attend a concert and Tim arrived later that day from work. The last scene that day (or should I say night?!) took a lot of time. It really was a tricky one to be honest. But it was worth it. The end of the day became a bit hazy. My bed and I where united at 2:25 AM that night, if I stand correctly. (I checked my testing inbox to be sure)
Day 7: Nijmegen 2.0
The second day started with a kind of Extreme Home Makeover. You wouldn’t recognize the living room if you’d seen it! I really enjoyed moving stuff around! Again, Tim joined the crew later on that evening because of work. We had the TV running with nobody really watching, but as it kept showing a McFlurry Stroopwafel commercial again and again we all started to notice. apparently commercials do work, because people actually started craving for the McFlurry, and after a while me as well. So Sharon and I went to get us all some McFlurries, which turned out be become quite a quest. The McDonalds we aimed for closed like, 5 minuted before we arrived. Stupid McDonalds. So we decided we didn’t want to return empty handed and tried the other McDonalds. Which, of course, was located at the other side of Nijmegen. Damn. But we had our ice creams and where welcomed back by many happy faces! Haha.. That evening Tim and I left the set early to catch the last train home. I was really, really, really tired, but I had a great time!
Day 8 and 9: ?
These days will remain a mystery if you only read my blog. I didn’t attend these 2 days because I had to be at my internship-company-thingy. I was really grumpy about it because I just really wanted to be at the Ik en Emma set, maybe I should apologize to my colleagues…
Day 10: Elst
This day took place in an other apartment, the apartment of a friend of the wife of Alphonso’s cousin if I’m not mistaken. Anyhow, it was located in Elst. We did a lot of different shots that day and we worked with “Emma’s dad”. A man of whom I think is a great actor. But then again so is Zora. I really felt uncomfortable when they pretended to have a fight! We also had a visitor that afternoon, a women who’s name didn’t linger in my mind. She was a reporter for the Sensor. A kind of E-newspaper of the HAN faculty if I understood correctly. She clearly was interested in the project. I liked that. Here is where you can read her article. Again we had loads of fun and I came home at 1.45 AM that night.
Day 11: Elst 2.0
Day 11 already.. They say time flies when having fun, I recon “they” are right! I have some serious sleep-catching up to do and I think I will O.D. on coffee at some point but I still feel very motivated and enthusiastic about the whole project! Today was a really easy-going day for me, I had to go to school first so I arrived at the set at 15:30 PM, give and take a few. I had to do a few short audio recordings. We finished at 19:00 PM, cleaned up the place, played with the cats, moved the equipment, enjoyed the sun and went home. Back in Arnhem Alex and I decided we didn’t felt like cooking so we went to Chico’s for a nice Kebab. I got home at 21:00 PM
