  • Hi

    We’re looking for an Archive where we can shoot a commercial for a leading newspaper.
    For this commercial we need access to an archive (or perhaps a library) in the area (Flanders)
    It has to be an old archive, it can even be a bit neglected, but it has to be of substantial size!

    Please contact me at

    ralphurmel@hotmail.com

    thanks!

    Shootready locations in Belgium are on :

    http://www.loc8.be – or http://www.locamundo.com – OK you need to pay a small fee to search, but you’re 95% sure you can shoot there… and there are really nice old dusty large libraries there !!

    Merci Jean-Luc pour la pub.

    Good morning,

    We’ve had a look at the forum post:

    and the following archives in Bruges come to our mind:

    * archive St.-Sebastiaansgilde: classy house of the ancient city guard or archer’s guild. Many art objects, paintings of important members and/or kings and a lovely garden overlooking the windmills
    Carmersstraat 174
    8000 Brugge
    http://wwwsebastiaansgilde.be/nl/default.dhtml
    * archive St.-Jorisgilde / St. George’s Archers Guild: idem, but less classy and exclusive
    Stijn Streuvelsstraat 59
    8000 Brugge
    http://www.brugge.be/internet/en/toerisme/bezienswaardigheden/musea.htm#12

    * City archive: located in the beautiful Liberty of Bruges on the Burg Square
    Burg 11
    8000 Brugge
    http://www.brugge.be/internet/en/musea/bruggemuseum/brugse_vrije/index.htm

    * archive guide association Gidsenbond: old house with characteristic sqeaky floors and stairs, but rich library
    Kleine Hertsbergestraat 3
    8000 Brugge

    Hopefully this information proves usefull.

    Kind regards,
