No sooner said than done. And that’s how Raf and colleague Kjeld found themselves on 10 July on the De Kampioenen football pitch in Reet. Raf gave a crash course in crane-driving for Jacques Vermeiren, or ‘Dimitri De Tremmerie’ whilst Kjeld taught Sven De Ridder how to manoeuvre the bucket loader across the pitch. Since more skill was required for a few of the scenes, Raf and Kjeld acted as stand-ins for some of the more difficult jobs – in appropriate outfits, of course.
