'We Run' in Pre-Production
It's time! Time for the story of 'We Run' to unfold. I was lucky to find a scenario writer last month to co-write the last pieces of the story with, to make the storyline complete. Her name is Nathalie Scheenstra. And she's both an art historian as well as a scenario writer. The perfect combination to create a dystopian world together with. She already gained experience on the Hollywood film production of 'Redbad'. And she has this beautiful sense of realism combined with romanticism. Just what I was looking for. A co-creation match made in heaven.

So, as we speak, we are rewriting and tweaking some scenes to make the story stronger, before we pitch it to Film Production Companies. I already found some investors who are willing to contribute to this film production, now it's just a matter of finding the right match, film production wise.
Next week we'll have a props and wardrobe design meeting. Where we will colour in the world of 'We Run' with weapons, dresses and props that fit in this dystopian era. I also found a female Bushcraft expert that will help us make the survival scenes look real and authentic.
I can't wait for the shooting days to begin! But first things first: I'm training myself for the role of Iris. She can shoot with bow and arrow, fight like a warrior and climb rocks/mountains. So my aim for the coming months is to get fierce and fabulous to be able to play this role convincingly.
And the good news I recieved this week, is that we can borrow 30 swords for a mini-army that you will meet in the film. Aaaaa! So exciting!
Ok, I will keep you updated on the production process, without spoiling much any further ;)
Keep an eye out on my website!
