Every now and then we all wonder what we are doing here.
We ask ourselves what we are doing and why.
Playing concerts for a living was always perplexing for me. The feedback was direct, but over very quickly. You just never knew what the audience was experiencing, despite moments where we all felt connected and energized somehow.
Making films is somewhat less intangible and is more permanent, but every now and then you come across people who are doing things that have an immediate and direct effect on people's lives:
While writing a review about a wonderful dive operation in the Dutch Antilles, I started to dig through my underwater footage and ended up editing a short video to pair with the review.
There are quite a few nice moments caught on camera in this one, shot during a week long excursion as a dive club's videographer. Bonaire is a destination where you can keep to shallow depths, so working with natural sunlight can yield some rewarding shots.
With very little current it's possible to hang about and wait for creatures to trust that you will not eat them, and the shots can be more interesting than a fish swimming away from you.
