This video was made as a video portrait,
We started in 2022 by interviewing Raf, filming him, making photo’s and video’s, going through old photo’s and collecting drawings from his sketchbooks.
Quite early on, a music piece was written that became the basis for the final video.
As a final step, we made the animations with elements from photo’s and drawings by Raf, these feature a character which we named “Rafmannetje”.
The final video was first displayed as part of a video installation at “Poetical representations”.
The T-shirt worn by the “Rafmannetje” was also made as a real T-shirt and worn with pride by Raf himself at the exhibition.
