Dutch courage

Here’s a lovely fun commercial I shot in Amsterdam for Centraal Beheer a few weeks ago. It looks great doesn’t it. I was on set a couple of days for this. It’s only 20 seconds long but as you can see there’s a lot of different scenes and setups, and if you’ve worked on commercials before you’ll know they often like to do lots of different takes and versions to give them plenty of choice in the edit. I had to comb that poor girl’s hair with a lice comb quite a lot of times as you can imagine! I couldn’t even apologise because she didn’t speak English. I also had to be jumped on by those other children several times (the boy seemed to enjoy spanking my arse). Beats having a proper job though doesn’t it.
