We're Victor Bray (20) and Pleun Wijgman (21), the makers of the documentary 'Generation 5 - Too Soon To Quit'. We both began our study in Media, Information and Communication in 2017 at the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam. Because of our passion for filmmaking, our paths crossed three years later at the University of Applied Sciences in Utrecht for the minor 'Campus Doc'.
In Victor's day to day life, he is constantly busy with films, whether it's writing them, making them or watching them. Victor: "Because I have a lot of creative roommates, I can easily come up with an idea for a video, pitch it and make it all in one week." In 2019 Victor worked for the School of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam and had the freedom to invent concepts for videos and work them out. "This was an incredibly informative and fun experience".
As a child Pleun started filming and editing video's. 'During my study, I chose the route of Audio Visual direction. This meant I was able to work with a small and creative team who worked soley on audio visual productions. My internship was at AT5 and there I learned about film everyday. I really enjoyed this experience a lot, and have come to realize it suits me very well.'
As well as getting lessons in Utrecht about documentary film making, we were also lucky enough to take a class trip to New York and follow some intensive courses at the Graduate School of Journalism. Despite us only being students, we already have a lot of experience with video productions. We are an enthusiastic and professional duo and we are willing to do whatever it takes to actualize our vision for this documentary.
