WHAT AN INVENTIVE, HIGH-TECHNOLOGICAL FEAST OF A PRODUCTION. THE LATEST FILM FROM NORSK TIPPING IS ROLLING ON TV 2 THESE DAYS AND IS INTRODUCING THE LOTTO FESTIVAL. IT WILL BE KEEPING UP OUR LEVEL OF EXCITEMENT IN THE PERIOD FROM THE 18TH TO THE 27TH OF SEPTEMBER.
Productionwise, the film was a demanding process with an impressing set, pushing Norwegian limits. Hocus Focus partook in the pre-production planning and Tor Øra (3D) was on location during the shoot (photographed by Simon Hawken), supervising that everything went as planned. And of course it did, with such a bunch of professional and high quality people from Trøbbel: Director Alexander Kayiambakis, producer Hugo Hagemann Føsker and production manager Miriam Pedersen. Hocus Focus was given great confidence, which is much appreciated. With the world as our working space (sounded great), we got help all the way from New Zealand. Carl Ayala did the rotoscoping of a total. To sum up, a great production to work on AND the outcome is excellent. The team from Hocus Focus was managed by producer Lene Cathrine Albertsen: Martin Stoltz (editing), Haavard Albertsen (visual FX and colour grading) and Preben Grieg-Halvorsen (sound design). Take a look at the “Behind the Scene” film. For more information about the festival: www.lotto.no - break a leg.
