In 2010, Ameland formed the setting in the motion picture Penny's Shadow,a Dutch juvile movie produced by Steven de Jong, starring Liza Sips and Levi van Kempen (in the roles of Lisa and Kai).
The recording took place in the dunes, in the vicinity of the lighthouse.
After the recording, the film set remained in the same location for another 18 months. Subsequenty, it was torn down and rebuilt adjacent to vacation farmstead “De Lange Dunen” in Ballum.
Fun fact: this is where Shadow stayed during the recordings and Lisa and Kai took horseriding lessons! It is possible to visit the fillm set of Penny's Shadow. You can either walk around the set by yourself, or take part in a tour. Whilst touring the set, feel free to take a photograph with Shadow (just bring someone along who can take pictures).
Due to the Corona measures, the filmset is currently closed.
