Tegenlicht “Het Groene Goud”

VPRO Tegenlicht is a long running 50 minute documentary slot on sunday evening. I worked on some of the previous episodes in the past few years and this time I collaborated with a few fellow cinematographers to cover this special story.

The Film

This episode is all about re-greening the desert. The episode combines footage from India, Spain and Egypt. Together with director Rob van Hattum I covered Egypt.

The Idea

We wanted a nice and steady picture with epic wides and lots of room to watch.

The Solution

Working with the sony F55 and fujinon 19-90 ensured a wide latitude for the Egyptian sun. You can watch the trailer down here or watch the entire episode online at uitzendinggemist.nl
