During the Second World War a lot of resources were scarce, including textiles. Women became enormously creative with the textiles that they did have at their disposal. With progressive, fashionable creations as a result.

For the new exhibition 'Mode op de Bon' (translated as 'Fashion on Ration') at the Resistance Museum, I provided the exhibition films that provide an explanation and context for the collection. I also made promo edits to bring the exhibition to the attention through the social media channels of the Resistance Museum. Shooting vertical films turned out to be a challenge, but also offered new opportunities and perspectives.
