Hedon is a well known concert venue in Zwolle. In 2014 they opened a brand new building with two auditoriums. A place where different types of music and artists are introduced to the public. But there’s a lot more to Hedon than meets the public’s eyes. There are several rehearsal spaces, a professional kitchen where they cook for artists, technicians and all other crew. Preparing a show takes a lot of hard work and preparation.
To introduce kids to Hedon, they provides educational programs to elementary schools. During one guided tour through the venue, they noticed that kids couldn’t really grasp what it takes to prepare a show. That’s why we were asked to make an educational film, explaining exactly that.
We created a presenters duo with Iskandar and a kid in the age group of our audience. After a little audition, the talented Naomi Meijnen became our pick.
Singer and musician Waylon was nice enough to work with us for this project and after a good pre-production we had a two day shoot. Big thanks to our camera man Site Steendam!
In the film, Iskandar and Naomi introduce the viewer to the complete process of booking an artist until the actual show. They visit the venue programmer, help the marketing team, speak with the technicians and of course they have a conversation with the artist, Waylon.
In a nutshell, the films provides the young viewers with a clear image of everything that makes for a good show in a concert venue.
