I was asked to be an external advisor for the graduating class of the ‘Video & Photography’ department at the Deltion College in Zwolle, The Netherlands. Daan Hartoog, a friend and co-producer of my graduation film EFENDI, is teaching there and together with two other teachers we had to decide on which students passed and with what grades. What I saw were very diverse films, ranging from fiction, documentary and even a spec tv-show. I was very surprised at the quality of the films and was glad to see that Fikret Koç, one of the actors of EFENDI, who was in the class also, is becoming a filmmaker in his own right.
They all graduated. Congratulations to the class of ’09.
