Report Monday 21/01 - Arrival Day
(Monday, Januari 21st 2008)
On a rainy and windy Monday afternoon thirty filmmakers from all around the world gathered together on a boat in Rotterdam. This rocky boat will be the home of this international group for the next ten days. The second edition of the Rutger Hauer Filmfactory 2008 has begun.
The first day was about getting to know each other. Some have met before, others meet for the first time. The atmosphere was great. While having a drink at the bar the first interaction between the new ’students’ got of the ground. After a light meal in the dining room it was time for the official opening.
The crew got introduced and then Rutger Hauer did the talking. He told the participants in a few words what his vision on film making is. That you have to trust your instinct. That it’s weird that Hollywood has become such a glossy world. That it’s time to go back to the core. No more time for ego’s, you have to make a beautiful film as a team.
Then the making-of documentary of Film Factory 2007 was shown. The whole room was immediately in full concentration. A profound silence filled the room. The filmmakers got a glimpse of the joy, stress and results of last years participants. An advantage? Maybe, but most of them realized only the experience counts. No one knows what to expect and there are a lot of surprises ahead.
