Amsterdam Zine Jam

mini documentary

Zine Jam is a celebration of self-publishing and DIY book-making that takes place every year in Amsterdam. I was commissioned by ReKult to make a short film about the event in which I tried to capture the spirit of the zine culture.


I went to the venue before the event to check the light and plan the shots. The test footage turned out to be good enough to become the preview video for the event.
