A glimpse of the restoration

From the start Titus De Voogdt was asked  to make the restoration visible. Together with Steven Heene he writes  the story, Maximiliaan Dierickx filmed the first episodes (1-7), sometimes in co-operation with Jimi Abidts who took over the  filming. Jimi produces and assembles the whole.
