[Dutch] – De KROON – Behind the scenes

Published

on

Waarom moet de hele wereld weten van jullie filmpje?

Voor zwarte mensen is het erg leerzaam en bemoedigend om deze film te zien, omdat zij vervreemd zijn geraakt van hun roots door kolonialisme en door deze film te zien ervaar je de rijke geschiedenis die het afro haar kent en voel je je niet vervreemd van je natuurlijke haar. Daarnaast is de film voor de hele wereld interessant, omdat het een ode is aan de zwarte vrouw. De schepper van de mensheid. Een vrouw die door de geschiedenis heen hoogte punten, maar sinds het westers kolonialisme tot nu toe uit de westerse geschiedenis boeken wordt gelaten omdat ze een gevaar zou zijn voor de westerse samenleving. Wij willen die liefde voor haar en voor deze rijke (haar)geschiedenis delen met de wereld.

Hoe lang duurde het om dit te creeeren?

De film kent geen starttijd, omdat er veel voorkennis is opgedaan die bewust in de film geïmplementeerd is, maar sinds de racistische uitspraken die zijn gedaan bij het programma Bubbels&Gloss op 6 mei 2018 zijn we het concept van de film gaan uitwerken. Het is een organisch proces geweest, waarbij we niet verbonden waren aan harde deadline, omdat we dit als een belangrijk project zagen dat we wilde maken op onze eigen voorwaarden. 

Behind the scenes – short movie de KROON

Wat moet men vinden, doen of denken nadat zij het filmpje hebben gezien.

De onvoorwaardelijke kracht, liefde en geluk voelen die zwarte mensen uit hun haar en elkaar halen. Geconfronteerd raken door de hoeveelheid representatie van zwarte mensen en tegelijkertijd geïntrigeerd zijn om meer over deze wereld werkelijkheid te komen. 

Voor wie is dit filmpje voornamelijk?

Dit filmpje is voornamelijk gericht op de Afro-Nederlander, omdat we hen willen bemoedigen meer van hun natuurlijke haar te houden en die met trots te dragen, maar ook meer kennis op te doen over de rijke geschiedenis van de zwarte mens. 

Komt er een deel 2? 

Er staat geen deel 2 op de planning, maar haar is een onlosmakelijk deel van onze (culturele)identiteit waardoor dit zeker terug zal komen in de toekomstige films die we maken. Vooralsnog zijn we filmstudenten aan de HKU in Utrecht, maar hebben we beiden een eigen YouTube kanaal: ROBIN RAMOS en KYMANI CEDER.

Our mission is to increase global awareness and sustainably intensify African fashion, lifestyle, culture, arts and music.

OUR AWARENESS

We aim for awareness and positive perception of the melanated community with a variety of platforms investing in mediums to promote intrinsic artistry, encouraging the use of recyclable materials, fair trade and ethical labor practices.

OUR COMMON GOAL

In the midst of promoting the beauty of arts and culture our aim is to support sustainable fashion all over the world. Under our umbrella we bring together products, processes, activities, and actors (policymakers, brands, and consumers) working toward a carbon-neutral fashion industry based on equality, social justice, animal welfare, and ecological integrity. We are looking for brands who create the best outfits with less waste, paying fair wages & providing proper working conditions. Brands who are on a mission to reduce Co2 & other greenhouse emissions, always saving water in production and also saving animals lives!

Kanye West Sells Documentary to Netflix for $30M – 21 Years in the Making

Published

Footage of Kanye West

A multi-part documentary series featuring never-before-seen home videos and other rare footage of Kanye West is coming to Netflix in 2021 via two music-video and filmmakers who have been chronicling the artist-turned-billionaire entrepreneur’s life and work for more than 20 years.

“The mini series about Kanye sold to Netflix has no name yet.”

Sources familiar with the project say the streaming service has acquired the yet-to-be titled project from TIME Studios and Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah — more commonly known as Coodie & Chike — who directed two of  Kanye West’s first videos, “Through the Wire” and the third version of “Jesus Walks.”

Coodie and Chike directors and filmmakers

(In a 2014 interview with Billboard, Simmons said that West asked them to take another crack at interpreting the song because, he said, the first two versions, helmed by other directors, “don’t have the soul and feeling that I want.”

Netflix Documentary

This is what you can expect from the new documentary: One source says “Coodie” has been filming Kanye since the 1990’s in Chicago and their relationship will serve as the backbone of the series.

Which will tell the rapper and the producer’s success and fame’s impact on Ye and Hip Hop’s impact on popular culture. As well as the world’s evolving relationship with celebrities. 

A second source says, it will also deal with the death of Kanye’s mother Donda West and the impact it had on him. His personal revolution in recent years, his successful move into fashion design and his unsuccessful run for president in 2020.

It is unclear however whether the series will chronicle his on going divorce from Kim Kardashian.While Kanye is not creatively involved in the production, the second source says he’s essentially giving his support by allowing himself to be filmed by Clarence and Chike for 21 years! So their creative control company will produce along side TIME Studios
