During the past months of research, we got in contact with a local expert of Monmouth University; Mike Schwebel. He was so kind to meet us for a Welcome-to-New-Jersey-coffee. In this work, he focusses on social resilience and climate adaptation – perfect input for what we are doing here. We talked about why we are here … More Welcome-to-New-Jersey-coffee with Mike from Monmouth University
First night on location and already confronted with the water issues that are present here. Around 21:30 in the evening, Anouks phone made a noise that we didn’t know it could produce. Sounded like a large air alert, accompanied by a text warning for floods in our area due to heavy rainfall. Because of all … More Flood Alarm
After 24 hours of traveling, we made it to Asbury Park! The flights were mostly on time and comfortable (or at least, the first few hours). Even US customs let us and our video equipment and poster carrier (aka, bomb equipment and gun carrier) enter the country! Pleasantly surprised about that one.

On a sunny Saturday in May, Anouk and I went for a Trial Run on the beach in Scheveningen! Anouk may have some experience in filmmaking, but I had practically never touched a camera. We had a lot to practice before going on our big trip across the ocean… We had a trial run before, but unfortunately the brand new microphone gave up on us that day. But, no worries, we had some fish and chips and planned a new date. The microphone had been working all week, the weather was perfect and I just got my new action cam, so with new found enthousiasm, we went to the pier of Scheveningen. … More Trial Run on the Beach of Scheveningen!
