HOW IT ALL CAME ABOUT    In 1992 Jos van der Pal studied script writing at the Media Academy in the Dutch media capitol of Hilversum. After years of producing corporate films for customers such as the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy, he started working on his eccentric first drama production 'The Frog in the Coffee Grinder' back in 1999. Three years later he became a board member at NFTVM, Holland's largest and most active organization of film and TV-makers. In that capacity he was also a member of the national Oscar Selection Committee.
