At Vlambeer, we allowed fans to ask us questions about LUFTRAUSERS through Twitter & Facebook. The response was so overwhelming that we decided to call upon good friend Bram Ruiter to shoot a video, as we felt that could convey many of the questions for more competently than words ever could. We ended up recording 40 minutes of footage, which were then relentlessly cut down to about 6 minutes.
I’m quite happy with the result, considering the fact that we just printed all the questions and answered them without practice. I had lots of fun answering a lot of the questions & I’d think that Jan Willem would say the same thing.
The process was great as well. Bram had shot the whole interview with two cameras and through that additional footage, he came up with the zoomed black-and-white shots, which I presume to be in there to add some motion to the whole thing – but they also conveniently allow him to cut to different scenes in the video every now and then. We went through five different versions, the final one being a last-second fix in which we replaced the word ‘questionaire’ with the correct ‘questionnaire’.
It’s amazing how you can have spelling errors in a trailer with less than 30 words in there.
