On the set of Amsterdam Heavy

Shooting Day 1 – @ Rotterdam

06:30 am – The day started very early in the morning. It is still dark and grey outside. I didn’t had much sleep, and so are Koon & David. They took a nap while listening to the warm relaxing ballads. It was so quiet.

The building use to be a warehouse. When we entered the building, it really gives you the underground feeling, dark and dirty, there were graffiti on the walls, broken bricks, just the right place for criminal activities. I have one word to describe it, creeeepy.

The room where we stayed was called the Death Room, sounds good right? It looks like a crime scene, just like in the movies. Wit the blood on the wall it looks like a SAW movie scene. There we stayed for like half a day after the make up and dressing, waiting for the cast call. But it was very very cold, It was like freezing.

We have a small heater in the room which didn’t produced much heat. We were all sitting around the heater. There were also such a thing called hot hands, which are warm packets to warm up your hands, but some put it on the neck, and some in their shoes. We pass that around to keep people alive till the shoots are done.

The best thing is the gas heater, which looks like this! But it makes a lot of noise, so every time we were rolling the heater needs to be turned off.

Some weaponry showcase  . .

I thought I have clothed well for the set but double pants is probably not enough! My toes were frozen!

It’s lunchtime!

We went outside to have some fresh air and went to the theater at the corner which is luxury to us at that moment . . sure that the director wouldn’t like that but the whole crew were going to this theater for the toilet. It was like heaven, clean bathroom, comfortable sofa’s, lounge music, everything to relax for a while =)

One last scene to go today. We’ve been waiting for another 4 hours, and at the end, we’ve been told that we can leave. My dear!

20.30 pm – After all it was a long long day without daylight, locked up in the death room, for some a nightmare. But I’m happy that the Wu Dao Dragons had the chance to play in this movie together.

There is a Chinese saying, ‘有得有失’, 我们看事要看远点。

In life there are ups and downs, you can’t always count on the good things. On the long run, you might benefit from it. Just like a cup of thee, some are bitter and some are light. If you never tried the bitter thee, you wouldn’t be aware of how good the other cup tastes.

Shooting day 2 – @ Rotterdam

So here we are back in the Death room, as you can see the blood patterns are still unchanged. I had an incredible good night sleep. Packed in twice as good as yesterday to assure not to suffer like we did yesterday. A good night rest makes the difference! wow, I’m so energized!

Here are some pictures with the AK’s. Never thought I will shoot with an AK-47 Rifle, for the first time, it feels great!! and damn what a noise! It is a pity that David didn’t came with us, he had to prepare his sis birthday party for tonight! And we will be attending for sure! with the make up =P

On the set we had to take off our clothes in the T-shirt like in the summertime, but in fact we were  trembling from the cold!

13.00 – We’re done! This is really amazing! Good planning! Yesterday was like hell, and today it’s fun! And no death room anymore. We can go home =)

We went to Chinatown and bought some delicious cakes, especially the egg tarts, hmmmm yummie!

Shooting day 4 – 12.00 pm @ Rotterdam

Shooting day 4, I lost my 2 mates. This is the blood they left behind.

I’ll let them pay for this . .

Today I had a fight scene, well I wouldn’t say fight scene myself, it is more a fight shot. Wish it could last longer than it is. Too tired to type anymore, still need to drive back to Utrecht.

21.00 – Home.

This movie goes to the Cannes Film Festival and will be released in theaters hopefully by the end of this year.
