Sandy van de Water balancing on a bench in a lake by Joost van Uffelen

Featuring in a commercial!

There was not a lot happening recently here, but that does not mean me nor Sandy have been sitting idle.

Recently there was an exciting launch of a campaign Sandy featured in!

Together with our friends Klaudie and Peter of Onderwaterbeelden.nl we worked on the commercial for a full day.

Check out the end-result below!

For the non-Dutch speakers: de Nederlandse Munt (Royal Dutch mint) is a celebratory/commemorative coin which is a collectors item for many in the Netherlands.

New coins are issued with regular intervals to celebrate Dutch World heritage.

This time the coin is issued to celebrate "the Beemster", one of the pieces of land in the Netherlands which was created by building dykes and pumping out the water during the 17th Century.

The dykes and water management that we Dutchies are famous for, keep the land which is used to live on and used for agriculture dry.

Creating land was quite an achievement, knowing how innovative this method was in the those days; something that has set us Dutchies apart from any other nationalities.

All people in the Beemster (which is already a UNESCO Heritage site for 20 years now) still live under sealevel.

The video should emphasize what the Beemster would look like once the dykes break.

Obviously with global warming the risk of this happening has grown considerably over the years.

Lots of respect for Sandy for how she battled through the Spring water temperature, to make the production deadline before summer.

Also, lots of thanks to Klaudie and Peter for inviting us to this adventure!

Let us know what you think of the video!
