Screen Flanders supported Between 10 and 12 starts shooting


Principal photography on Peter Hoogendoorn’s debut feature Between 10 and 12 started on 9 September. A co-production between Keren Cogan Films and Phanta Film in the Netherlands and Minds Meet (BE), Unlimited (FR) and Dutch broadcaster AVRO, this real-time road movie is supported by the Netherlands Film Fund, Eurimages, Screen Flanders, Region Alsace and CoBO. The theatrical release is expected for 2014.
In Between 10 and 12, a devastating piece of news delivered by two officers in a police car changes the lives of a family forever. As the journey progresses, the vehicle becomes more and more crowded with family members, picked up from home, work, the hairdressers. As they sit in the backseat, alone with their thoughts, what they thought they knew about life, about relationships, has been violently altered. And while the focus for their despair is all too clear, around them everyday things begin to lose meaning as the world becomes increasingly absurd.
Writer/director Peter Hoogendoorn developed the script at the Binger Filmlab in Amsterdam. The project also got selected for Rotterdam's CineMart co-production platform in 2010. The ensemble cast is made up of Dutch actors Raymond Thiry, Nasrdin Dchar, Cynthia Abma, Olga Louzgina, Elise van 't Laar and Ko Zandvliet.
Key positions within the international crew are assigned to Flemish professionals Richard Van Oosterhout (DoP), Chris Hacken (gaffer), Matthias Hillegeer (sound engineer), Diane Dreesen (make-up) and stills photographer Nyk Dekeyser. Also part of the production and postproduction services are provided by Flanders based companies such as Lites (camera and lighting equipment), The Image & Sound Factory (sound recording and postproduction) and Galaxy Studios (image postproduction). Belgian co-producer of Between 10 and 12 is Tomas Leyers of Brussels based production outfit Minds Meet (I’m the same, I’m another, Blue Bird).
