Tuesday, 22 March 2016 at 18.48 hours
In this episode of 48 Hour Film Project the short film Weerklank is being shown. The team won the second place in Best Film.
Last year team No Form participated in the 48 Hour Film Project in Leeuwarden with their short film Weerklank. During the award ceremony, the team has been nominated in several categories. Eventually, they won Best Actor, Best Cinematography and Best Sound Design. In the category Best Movie they finished second. The film Weerklank is a detective and was shot on the island of Terschelling. The island produces beautiful images and there's an mysterieus ambiance that will be noticed by seeing the film. The story is about Nando and Koert. They are walking on the dunes of Terschelling. Nando is very fascinated by his surroundings and is goofing around with Koert. Koert doesn't care much about it. Ultimately, it's a very symbolic film that gives the audience food for thought.
