The "Happy 2005" FlyBy
Click here to see the e-card movie. It was made with Cinema 4D and After Effects.
The design of the aeroplane is based on the Fokker D21. My dad has been a proud Fokker-man his entire working life (though it is unlikely that he has ever seen a D21; the F27 would have been more appropriate). I'm happy to add that he is still very much alive and doing quite well. Gelukkig nieuwjaar, pa!
And to continue with another "in-crowd" remark: the voice of the hysterical pilot is John's - a great actor if you ask me. Or if you ask him, for he is recorded to have cheered "what an actor, eh?" ("wat een acteur, he") as a confident appreciation of his own performance during the Firenze "Camping Laundries" shoot of the late 1980s. It would in fact be interesting to some day compare his performance to that of Antoon Baede in the El Masnou "Camping Laundries" remake of the mid-ninetees. We'll let the public decide.
