the last of the weir fisherman

Shot this film on the Panasonic LUMIX S1 camera. Filmed most of the film in extreme low-light situations and handheld as we where standing on a boat. The short film is about the traditional weir fisherman in the North of the Netherlands that using an ancient technique to catch the anchovies in the Schelde river.
