The Blue Virgin (De Blauwe Maagd), the short film I wrote and am producing, is wrapped! That means all footage of the film is shot, and we can move into post-production: editing, visual effects, colour grading and of course composing and recording the music score.
The Blue Virgin is an international short film drama with black-comedy undertones directed by fresh, exciting Dutch talent Tim Klok and starring Pierre Bokma, one of the Netherlands greatest actors, and prominent acting talent Sytske van der Ster.
The story revolves around Thomas, an extremely wealthy man. When his beautiful wife is kidnapped on a holiday in the south of France, he tries to buy her back with his fortune. But this causes him to get entangled in a centuries-old feud, that is being fought in true medieval fashion: until death.
The film was shot entirely on location, in the existing French village of Montbrun-les-Bains and on the top of the nearby Mont Ventoux, and produced by Tim and me, in addition to Dutch producers Carl van de Wetering and Puck Mickers, strong new voices in the Dutch film world, and Ewoud Bon, who was also the Director of Photography on the film.
