DROP OUT

DROP OUT
of De Meester Kan Me Nog Meer Vertellen

Wim Verstappen, 1970

The first feature I made stills for. Not a great hit, but Tuschinski n.v., who released it, were pretty much satisfied
—so who am I to think that ad too crummy and vulgar for words?
(You want to see good movie ads, kid? Click here).
I guess I made something like 150 Dutch guilders on the deal, there just was no budget for stills.
You get what you pay for. What else is new?


We travelled around Holland with a pretty small crew for three weeks and learned a lot about motion picture production. Wim's common-law-wife Ria Rettich painted the VW-bus; it seems to have been seen driving around for a year after with the same paint job.
Very agreeable and relaxed production; for me at least. Some of those kids smoked so much—and I don't mean 'baccy. Marijke van Mourik's diction was so clear, sound engineer Martin van Dalen figured she was a member of the Verstappen (mumble, mumble) gang.
The movie might have turned out much worse; it was entertaining enough and that, to me, silences any complaint.
Also, as you may notice, it was mini-skirt time, gang!
I never managed to salvage a set of stills, only some loose snippets here and there that were never used.
Which explains why there are more crew shots than usual.
