THE NORWEGIAN NURSES ORGANISATION (NNO) IS CELEBRATING 100 YEARS OF EXISTENCE. THE PRODUCTION COMPANY TRANSFORM WAS GIVEN THE TASK OF MAKING FILMS THAT ARE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE THE CRUCIAL AND MANY-SIDED WORK NURSES ARE DOING. IT WORKS!
In four films and one music video, we are reminded of just that. They are our everyday heroes, the warm hands, the efficiency in crises, the support and competence during emergencies, our lifelines in the darkest hours. And the nurses are given a face and an identity in these films directed by Thor Bekkavik and shot by Karl Erik Brøndbo and Kristoffer Archetti. With close-ups of young and old ones, male and female, the variety of the profession is underpinned by portraits and confessionals that seem very real. The song HJERTETRU (= true to your heart) is lifting the campaign to yet another level in its down to earth simplicity and honesty. Beautifully performed and written, it touches the fragility of life and death with great sensitivity. The films are produced by Transform and post produced by Hocus Focus and Ole-Arild Svendsen: Edited by Ove Kenneth Nilsen, online and colour graded by Haavard Albertsen and Bengt Ove Sannes. Sound design by Ali Parandrian.
