Gouden Loeki award for SP!
For the above short that I shot for the Social Party in the Netherlands, we won a big communication award called the 'Gouden Loeki' , meaning so much as 'Golden Lion'. An award given by the Dutch audience to the most appreciated commercial of 2008.
Much respect here to Mieke, the lady in the film. Thank you for your courage and also for your sincere anger. You did this for the good cause. Thanks also to Agnes and Jan of the SP. Without their brave attitude the film would never have seen the light of day. And thanks of course to Thonik, the communication agency for the SP, who came to me with the rough idea in the first place. Thanks a million to my good friend Ernst Reijseger. He gave us his beautiful music (from his album Colla Parte). And to Hazazah, my production company, who found Mieke. And last but not least, thanks to all the people that worked with me on the project. Congratulations all. The best thing actually about this campaign is that it worked within very few weeks. It raised a hell of a lot of discussion, and soon the health care secretary of state announced some appropriate measures. So thanks Jet Bussemaker. Keep up the good work, I'd say.
