Project info: Without photojournalism we lose sight of things that are happening in the world. On January 25th more that 450 Dutch photojournalists were on strike. On this day the involved photographers did not take photographs, nor did they deliver their pictures to photo and news agencies. This campaign called ‘Fotolozevrijdag’ or ‘Picturefreefriday’ was organized by the Dutch professional association and trade union for journalists, NVJ, to advocate for better rates and more appreciation of the craftsmanship of photojournalists.
I made this short social media video to create awareness of the plight of photojournalist. And shared it using #fotolozevrijdag and #fotojournalistiekheefteenprijs.
The video was published on Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. The video was played more than 5,700 times and reached more than 19,000 people (stats of 29-01-2019) .

Interactive/multimedia longread ‘Denish’
Project info: This impressive life story is told by Dennis, former child soldier from Uganda. The kind of story you find in an evil children’s book. Non-fiction, that is.
This multimedia production has been made in close cooperation with War Child Holland. This Dutch NGO provides psychosocial support to children affected by armed conflict. Denish has been a child soldier in the civil war in Northern Uganda. He was forced to join the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in their fight for control over the Northern part of the African country.
Denish’ interview was done February 2017. In 2017 War Child Holland closed the programme in Uganda after being active in the country for 12 years.
Watch this longscroll, or ‘chaptered life story’ on how Dennis wakes up from his childhood nightmares.

Creating interactive timeline War Child Holland
Project info: War Child Holland wanted to publish the highlights of 12 years of its activities in Northern Uganda. I created an online interactive timeline allowing the visitor to go through these highlights in its own pace.

Video editing and animation
Project info: A TV studio, a dozen of volunteers, a letter and one question. Those were the ingredients of a social experiment done by RNW Media. The experiment brought wondering, silence, misunderstanding and a bit of sweat.
I created social media video’s for the new global campaign of RNW’s Love Matters project. The campaign, with the hashtag #StepIntoOurShoes, promotes access to safe and legal abortion. The project was setup in collaboration with Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights (WGNRR) and Advocates for Youth.
