It’s March 2021, we’re in the middle of a lockdown in the Netherlands. Because of Covid-19; stores are closed, we have a curfew at 9 PM and people work mainly from home. So when I was asked to film two of the Fieldlab events, I was more than excited!!
Fieldlab are a series of test events from the government. In a controlled environment concerts, theater performances and even festivals are being held for a select group of people. All visitors and crew need to be tested for Covid 48 hours before the event and 4 days after. These events were big in the news and it felt rather exclusive to be part of it.
Because it was such high profile and thus news worthy, it was crucial to be fast. After filming I went home immediately to start editing in the evening, to be live on Monday.
The first one I filmed was a concert at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam.
The second events was a Popfestival at Biddinghuizen.
