Film 'Energieslaven' wins Gouden Reiger

News - 03 November 2020 - Communication BK

During the Evening of the Assignment Film on 28 October, the film Energieslaven was awarded as the winner in the category Creativity/Innovation. The film shows in an insistent way how much energy is used in our household that has to be generated by rowers in the basement.

The idea to translate the energy into the manpower of rowers came from the client and also writer of the script Andy van den Dobbelsteen. The film is very effective as a recruitment tool for the MOOC Zero Energy Design, but could also count on a lot of appreciation during presentations and congresses last year.

The jury spoke of a film that is aimed 'at a broad audience. And they also manage to get the viewer to think about their own behaviour...'. Producer Oculus Film is also very pleased with the award. ‘This kind of creative film is a great way to tell stories where people, society and technology come together'. Watch the film here.
