COMING UP FROM RIKSTOTO: A PLEASURABLE REMINDER OF THE GOOD FEELING OF SAFE BETS. THE KEY WORD HERE IS CONFETTI. JUST THE SIGHT OF CONFETTI HAS THE ABILITY OF SPREADING HAPPINESS AND JOY, CREATING UNDEFINED EXPECTATIONS OF CELEBRATIONS WITH A HIGH PARTY FACTOR.
Confetti in green and yellow, the colours of Rikstoto, does in this case - I believe – involve money. Lots and lots of money. More specifically, 42 millions NOK of them. In line with the way Rikstoto is presented before, and the way this familiar game is played, we meet ordinary people who might be the lucky winners. The bearded fisherman with his yarn, the young family with a new kid in a stroller (I really hope they are the lucky ones!), and the fashionable, single city woman. Go for the Jackpot, and your life will change. So, no wonder the confetti is there. Much thanks to Haavard Albertsen, by the way, who created all that confetti single handedly (online and colour grading), except for those in the close-ups – well done. The sound of expectation is created by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen, and the film is put together and edited by Ove Kenneth Nilsen. The production company is Trøbbel with director Ubbe Haavind and producer Miriam Pedersen Eeg. Post produced by Henriette Carlsen and Hocus Focus.
