… a filmset!
Last week, working at the Zeeuws Archief was kinda bizarre… the building I work in happened to be the center of a film set. The film is called “De Slag om de Schelde” (“The battle of the Scheldt“) the street was turned into a war zone and the Zeeuws Archief building was choosen to act like the headquarters of the German nazi’s. You can imagine how strange it was to step into my workroom (the room right above the front door) and see a Nazi-flag hanging in front of my window…
Of course, when the filming started, my collegues and I sat in the front seat – we all stood at the top windows watching! I brought my camera and took photos but those weren’t nearly as good as the pics my collegue Daniël Obbink took. Here’s a compilation (thanks for letting me use these Daniël.)
Today is my first day off this week (I went to work yesterday also, to make up for the hours I missed because of taking a Paleography course) and I have a long list to slay, so I keep this blogpost short, but I can’t go without showing you some art now can I? Here’s my latest art journal spread
The Chronicles of Marit 2020 – Week 3
The sentence (“you are not worth it that I lift my tongue for you…”) is from a text/letter I had to transcribe for the course. The phrase comes from a letter (from 1779) sent by a captain to his bosses in which he complaines about the behavior of his first steersman. I think this is swearing at its best!
And now, dear readers, I’m off to get some work done (are you a transcriber to my newsletter? I hope to send one out this weekend.)
Enjoy your weekend sweeties, do something fun! Go see a movie!
