While being Cultural Capital of Europe 2018 Friesland was ranked third in the top 10 European destinations by Lonely Planet travel guide. The organisation of Cultural Capital Leeuwarden approached us to make a film to show the most beautiful places in Friesland to announce this exciting news. But most of all to show that we are proud of Friesland and proud to be Frisians.
Because of the short notice of ranking third in the Lonely Planet guide we had only 2 days to make the video. Once the script was written the search for the right footage began. We had a lot of shots from Friesland from past projects that we could use for the film. In addition, we contacted other filmmakers from Leeuwarden to ask for their contribution to the project. With this collaboration, we were able to find the most beautiful footage of Friesland and show why we deserve to be in the top 3.
