Because there are not that much opportunities to compete in Videosub-competitions I enrolled for the Open Belgian Championships underwater videography of 2015. I teamed up with buddy Rene van der Laan to be my video-assistant. I made a short documentary about the European lobster in the Zeeland area called ‘Homarus Zeelandica’. I was lucky to meet so much support of people who enjoyed cooperating for my documentary. My production made it to the bronze medal (third place) in the overall ranking.

Competition days were April 25th & 26th, June 27th & 28th, August 22nd & 23rd, October 3rd & 4th 2015

And the Award ceremony was held on November 28th 2015 in Sint-Niklaas.

In February 2019 I finished a 11 minutes remake of ‘Homarus Zeelandica’ in English. The narration was done by Pat Montello. I used harp music composed and performed by Kevin Macleod for its soundtrack. I reused some interviews with biologist Jan van der Veen.

The film experienced its premiere during the 41st PAFTACHOV underwater photo & film festival March 1st – 3rd 2019 in Czech Republic. The film was awarded with the second place in the ‘Amateur category’.
