I recently returned from Amsterdam where I attended the premiere of “The Magic of Heineken” a hour and a half film about the history of the company, its global outreach, and of course…BEER! It is always difficult to rank your favorite jobs of all time because some of them are great life experiences, while others fulfill you creatively. Occasionally a job does both and when that happens it is truly magical. This project exceeded my expectations in every way. I am really excited to share the details and post some footage, but for now check out the photos of the amazing party they threw at the historic “Pathé Tuschinski” theater in Amsterdam. I am so grateful to have worked for such an amazing company. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE MAGIC OF HEINEKEN PREMIERE PHOTOSET
