Director Robbe De Hert hopes by the end of the year his long-awaited documentary Hollywood to the Scheldt to have, now that just about all the necessary money is available.
That he has Monday night declared in Van Gils & Guests on One. Robbe De Hert called the result of the crowdfundingactie for his project “unlikely” and realizes to his own words, not what good to him over the last few weeks happened.
Hollywood on the river Scheldt, is a dream project of the 74-year-old The Deer where he had about twenty years to working. “A first version, I was not satisfied, I have 116 hours of material to work with,” he says. “But it costs a lot of money for that process to start.”
With close to 40,000 euros from the crowdfundingactie that a former figurante of his films and a student have started, and the 50,000 euros that the Flemish minister of Culture Sven Gatz (Open Vld) wants aside, it seems the film now to be able to come.
The Deer would have some additional interviews to rotate with influential Belgian filmmakers over the past decade such as the Dardenne brothers.
Came there Monday had an unexpected offer. The weekly ‘t Pallieterke, a political voice at the other side of The Deer, let us know 10,000 euros to invest in the project, provided that there is a conclusive business plan is drawn up.
