Serendipity

It's wonderful how things in live can happen. I live and work in Utrecht, the Netherlands. And one fine day I sold the movie rights from one of my books (The Extraordinary Diaries of Victor Veggiestein) to this animatiestudio from Brussels, Belgium. 

They presented the Veggiestein plan on CartoonMovie (it's a kind of European animation movie fair) in France and there they met Arnoud and Michiel from Il Luster productions. A couple of weeks later these Belgium producers introduced me to this two guys who worked an 8 minute walk from my place in Utrecht. A year later we sat in the conference room of the Il Luster headquarters and discussed this wonderful idea of a boy raised by robots after an airship crash on a inhabited island.
