AED Studios makes Belgian national paper!

"Why not film Star Wars in Lint?", asks Gazet van Antwerpen
Publish date:

Spotted by regular PSNEurope contributor Marc Maes: last week AED Group made one of Belgian’s national papers, Gazet van Antwerpen, following its acquisition of the Alfacam production facilities in 2013.

Under a headline which translates as "Why not film Star Wars here in Lint?", the boss of the self-styled ‘equipment banker’ Glenn Roggemann talks about the history of the AED and Alfacam; the “mess” they found after ill-fated televisual services company Alfacam Group left the site; a list of productions that have used the facility since AED has revamped it; and Roggeman's problems with the authorities because of his application to build a heliport, for the easy ferrying of talent/directors/producers to and from the facility.

Regarding that headline: none other than Star Wars producer Gary Kurtz was a guest speaker at a recent filmmakers' event held at AED Studios!
