Valkieser files bankruptcy

Valkieser files bankruptcy as it could not survive the though year we had. There were not enough jobs to pay for the expenses and so Arthur had to pull the plug. it is a sad day for post-production in Amsterdam.. After so many years of service Valkieser has become part of post-production history. The managing staff will try to find a solution to continue business in some form.

I wish all my colleagues the best of luck!
