Holland - Natuur in de delta
Illustrations and storyboards for the documentary by Mark Verkerk.
This is a concept art digital illustration I prepared for the making of Holland - The Living Delta, the second of the trilogy of documentaries by Mark Verkerk.
A week after Holland – The Living Delta was awarded the prize for best movie poster of the year, it struck gold once more. In 100 days the film attracted more than 100,000 visitors to the cinema screens. We can now officially call the film a Golden Film. Producers Ton Okkerse and Ignas van Schaick received the Golden Film board on behalf of the Dutch Film Festival and the Dutch Film Fund.
Holland, The Living Delta celebrates the diverse natural heritage of the Dutch rivers and delta region while sketching the cultural and historical context that has played such a vital part in shaping them. It is often said that while God created the world, the Dutch created Holland.
Using cutting edge cinematic techniques ranging from eagle’s eye aerial views to unprecedented underwater scenes revealing rarely scene secret worlds — Holland, The Living Delta presents a portrait of this unique wetland area of Europe as never seen before; capturing it in an important moment of change, when many of the natural processes, all but strangled by dikes, pumps and canals, are recovering. A time when new life is flooding back into the delta.
I created the storyboards, part of which displayed below, in preparation of some of the scenes you can find on my reel.
