Cast & Crew (English)
WILMA - MARJOLEIN RIETMAN (1976)
Bittersweet, the script is beautifully written and recognizable. And will take the viewer along that not everything in life is permanent.
In my spare time I am active as an actress in a theater group.
To me, acting is giving audiences a beautiful moment by creating things, taking them out of everyday reality.
I regularly have cool assignments for the casting agency.
Last summer I had the opportunity to work on a Charly Short Films production for the first time.
It was a nice experience and Blind Faith turned out to be a beautiful film.
Charles is a filmmaker, who has a lot of love for the profession and works from his heart.
CLAIRE - BRENDA GOODHEART (1967)
I am a theater animal in heart and soul, but camera acting is getting better and better. With that I don't have to reach the back row, but rather master the art of playing nice and small. Learned a lot during my training at the Dutch Actors School in Rotterdam. And gained the confidence to try everything in practice. I've been able to make beautiful things with Charles and Gerda before, where Blind Faith was a gem for me personally. Great to once again be part of a top team for a beautiful film.
FRED - MICHAEL SARIOGLU (1978)
In addition to my real role as a father of 2 children, partner and owner of 2 Chihuahuas, I like to take on the role of various characters.
Making your passion your job is my goal and I can say that I am well on my way to realize this. I've learned a lot in all the years that I've been acting and I never stop learning.
Diversity in characters/characters is what I like the most.
I think it's important that I portray my character as lifelike as possible, so that it comes across as believable. It must feel real to me.
I am grateful that I have been able to do many assignments in (commercial or non-commercial) television internet or film productions and commercials.
I have also been able to play in some of Charles' productions, which I am very proud of!
I am very proud to be part of the cast for this beautiful short film Bittersweet.
This movie is going to be really BitterSweet!
SELLER SHOP - DERYA DRIESSEN - TURKOL (1986)
I have two lovely children and I am married. I am currently doing the camera acting preparatory course at film actors academy Amsterdam (Faaam) Very nice to do! In addition, I do many fun things that come my way, such as this short film “bittersweet”.
From an early age I have loved acting, dancing and giving presentations. Because of family life, that hobby has fallen away, but now there is room for it and I can enjoy myself again in my passion.
I really enjoy being able to participate in “bittersweet”, because it is a fun and recognizable theme.
I am really looking forward to it!
DIRECTOR, WRITER AND CAMERA- CHARLES DEKKER (1963)
After careers in various branches as an independent entrepreneur, Charles literally changed course in 2019 to follow his heart and let creativity flow freely. He bought equipment and literally immersed himself in everything to do with filmmaking and initially started making short programs in which he, together with his wife Gerda, interviewed interesting but unknown artists. Everything was edited and colored by myself, etc... Because the thoughts continued to flow, a start was made with short (horror) films with extras and starting actors m/f. The latest projects (2021) One Way Street and Blind Faith received multiple awards at international film festivals. Now it's time for a short feature film of about 30 minutes in which a close and warm team of actresses, actors and crew will deliver a top performance!
ESSENTIAL ON THE SET - GERDA DEKKER (1956)
As Charles's wife, Gerda is actually the pivot in the whole. She and Charles form a unity in almost every area. Gerda takes care of everyone, guides the actors when Charles is filming, but also helps with the sound if necessary. She takes care of clothing, catering you name it. So simply indispensable....
