Rudy has a love for cinema. In art collegue he studied animation, which is obviously a form of cinema, but he has been seen dozens of times with a video or super8 camera around Antwerp, just shooting footage. He likes to to keep an 'archive' of filmed material, but so far, only one 'finished' product has emerged from his urge to film.

To some, Rudy's first film may look like nothing more than a series of amateuristicly filmed sequences. And in a way, these people are most definitely right. Together with his old classmate and friend Dirk De Hooghe, Rudy directed a 50-minute experimental videofilm in '96, shot in a day or two-three, with no budget whatsoever. The most expensive part of the film must have been the cost of videotape and super8-film, and the price of two coffees in a café. The film also lacks any sign of a story, trained actors, proper lighting or sound recording either. What remains is a joyful, improvised, freestyle film. To fit it into a genre is...challenging. The most obvious (yet probably incorrect) comparision might be the scandinavian dogma-school. Shaky camera work, natural lighting and sound, and I doubt many scenes took more than one take to shoot. In the end though, Rudy and Dirk have made the film they just liked to make at that time. They didn't try to make any profits out of it, nor did they have any technical background in shooting films, so in that prospect this film definitely is amateuristic.
