Nick & Simon in LA – De Weg Naar NSG

Bij het conceptalbum NSG (Nick & Simon & Garfunkel) lieten Nick & Simon zich inspireren door hun Amerikaanse voorbeelden. Voor de opname van de plaat zijn Nick & Simon afgereisd naar Los Angeles. Eenmaal daar werkten zij samen met verschillende legendarische muzikanten onder leiding van producer Jay Newland (Norah Jones, Gregory Porter). Het bijzondere opnameproces werd op beeld vastgelegd en het resultaat is een unieke documentaire waarin naast muziek ook humor centraal staat.

THERE’S A WILL

THERE’S A WAY

What an appropriate slogan for this assignment. Together with Being There we made an online commercial for Florius. And it’s a hundred percent COVID-19 proof of course.

If you can’t come to the sea, the sea will come to you! Unox Nieuwjaarsduik uit blik does just that. We shot a couple of candidates willing to try this chilling dive into 2021 and made a commercial out of it.

CAMPING!

Nick, Simon & Kees: De Drie Sterren Camping

A 100% Fast Forward production for AVROTROS. A ten episodes television series developed and produced within 3 months. Crazy but fun!

In ‘De drie Sterren Camping’ Nick, Simon and Kees invite a couple of famous guests to their campsite, to relax for a day. The hosts have asked the guests to fill in a form, with questions about their stress level and ways to relax. Based on this form, Nick, Simon and Kees have put together a program for the day, to give their guests but also the viewers tools to relax.

During the day there is room for nice conversations, fun activities and a lot of music. Nick, Simon and Kees provide their guests with a fine balance of relaxation, depth, music but also a lot of craziness and humor.

17

MILLION

PEOPLE

King’s Day: normally the day that all of us go out and celebrate, together in our own way. But this year we had to celebrate it a bit differently: we stayed at home. ING still wanted to make King’s Day 2020 something special, a day to remember. To support the 17 million Dutch people in a way we at Fast Forward Amsterdam love: celebratory, full of confidence and inspiring.

Vrienden Van Amstel LIVE! 2020

As in previous years we’ve provided the television registration and the social content for De Vrienden van Amstel Live! concerts. We have been working closely with Tribe Company and Amstel Bier for a number of years now, which meant that we were able to make our plans at an early stage this year, which turned out to fit the show perfectly. It started with a series of reveal videos, for the #VVAL social media channels, in which the big master plan for the line-up was revealed gradually. During the concerts we were present backstage and inside Ahoy to register the concert. We’re proud to receive the trust from the participating artists to capture the unique atmosphere backstage. Artists say VVAL is an exceptional event, and we’ve got the opportunity to show that. The typical Fast Forward result is a cinematic recording that captured the soul of the event.

I WISH I WAS

HOMEWARD

BOUND

Nick, Simon & Kees: Homeward Bound

This primetime television show, aired on NPO1, the Netherlands’ most popular TV channel, is a 100% Fast Forward production, from format to grading. And 100% Fast Forward in every way: original, authentic, and produced in an intelligent and innovative way.The hugely popular Dutch music duo, Nick & Simon, along with their close friend Kees Tol, become documentary makers. Their quest is to tell the story of their musical heroes, Simon & Garfunkel.

We captured the three friends and their interaction throughout the entire process. Central to the originality of the series is the untreated honesty of Nick, Kees and Simon on screen: we get to see their uncertainty and insecurity as documentary makers, but also their drive to want to tell this story right. An intriguing combination of a straight documentary with a making-of in one TV show is what makes the series so unique, and demanded some really smart production work.
