THIS FALL’S GREATEST RELEASE FROM TVNORGE IS THE HUMOUR SERIES HELT PERFEKT (=COMPLETELY PERFECT). IN THE SPIRIT OF INTERNATIONAL SERIES LIKE CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, THE OFFICE AND NORDIC SERIES LIKE SOLSIDAN, KLOVN AND HJERTE TIL HJERTE, WE GET ALL OF THE PAINSTAKING EMBARRASSMENT.
It is almost unbearable to watch at times and therefore it must be very good. Much thanks to the staging of the main character Thomas Giertsen. True to the genre of sitcom mockumentary, we are invited into the everyday life of the Norwegian humour celebrity. Other characters are played by real life buddy Jon Øigarden (as himself), Mr. Giertsen’s boss at TVNorge (as himself) and a bunch of other characters playing themselves. The big question in the press and perhaps of those who watch is: What is real and what is fiction? We conclude that we really do not care that much, as long as the series is as hilarious as it is. Hocus Focus with Bengt Ove Sannes and Shanon Moratti have had the joy and pleasure of being responsible for online and colour grading of this first season. The television ratings is reaching new heights, so hopefully the rumours of a season 2 will come true. The production company is Feelgood Scene Film og TV, the main director is Arild Frølich, with help from several episode directors, and the producers are Jannecke Nordskog and Bjørn Arne Odden. Post produced by Hocus Focus and Henriette Carlsen: Edited by Martin Stoltz and Feelgood, sound design by Megaphon.
