Yesterday evening was the national TV premiere of SHEEP HERO on KRO-NCRV 2 DOC NPO2. In the Netherlands you can now watch the film on uitzending gemist. Hashtag ‘Schapenheld’ was trending yesterday on Twitter. There is also a DocTalk made with director Ton van Zantvoort. In this 15 minute episode you can hear more about the making of this film and also how Stijn is now doing.
This morning we also got the TV ratings. Just as the shepherd has to compete, that is also the case with a documentary film. The broadcaster said the film did good. The goal was 5% of the viewers and we reached it. Quite funny to see that everything is being analysed. A Shepherd is in competition with the World Cup Soccer, the large music festival PinkPop and Dr. Pol.
