In a short film we are introduced to Dirkie de Veenboer, the ship’s boy who makes it the big admiral of the Turkish fleet. As Suleyman Reys he is the fright of Algiers and therefore the entire Mediterranean. Of course it doesn’t end well with our Dirkie.. Fully filmed in the Netherlands and Morocco in slow motion with our RED camera, heavily filtered and edited with animations by Mandy. Frederik de Groot’s beautiful voice is the icing on the cake.
