SMALLFILM HAS PRODUCED A NEW CAMPAIGN FOR THE DIETARY SUPPLEMENT VITAEPRO WITH VERSIONS FOR THE NORDIC MARKET OF NORWAY, SWEDEN, DENMARK AND FINLAND. IT IS A LARGE PRODUCTION WITH A NICE MIXTURE OF NEW FILMS AND OLD FILMS, SOME FAMILIAR AND SOME UNKNOWN.


However, all of them have the same message. To keep up with your daily life of numerous activities, your body need a supplement and VitaePro might the solution. The commercials also continue to use “real” people and their statements of how well the product has worked for them. From operative purchaser Anna Linn to Torstein Sørensen and the buss driver who is sitting all they, but who loves to go rollerblading. The statements are still very convincing and works great. Never change a winning team... The campaign is directed by Mikkel Ohrvik and produced by the production company Smallfilm with Rut Solli at the head of the table. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus: Thomas Løvig and Henrik Berge have edited the campaign, Bengt Ove Sannes is responsible for the VFX and colour grading. Sound design by Lydhodene.

THE SOUND OF NORWAY: A CLEVER FILM PROMOTING THE RADIO CHANNEL P4 IS SOON COMING YOUR WAY. CLEVER BECAUSE IT IS SHOWING US VISUALLY WHAT WE MIGHT ASSOCIATE A CERTAIN KIND OF SOUND WITH. IT THEREBY PRESENTS US WITH THE ILLUSION, THE FASCINATION AND THE MAGICALLY TOUCH OF AUDIO.


Do we hear the sound of a smoke diver, as we sense the claustrophobic feeling of small and impassable spaces? Is it an out of breath bulldog or is it simply an elderly man, out of shape, going up an never-ending stairway? Or is it neither..? Perhaps you are just fooled by two studio-guys having great fun bringing forward all those images in your head with a huge pump – Oh yes, we love the radio. In addition, if you manage to guess what the source of a particular sound really is, you can also win a bunch of money, money, money. The production company is Filmhuset, the producer is Bruno Ø. Kvae and the director is Kjærand Nesvik. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus. Colour grading and online by Bengt Ove Sannes.

MONTéE IS A NORWEGIAN BAND PLAYING MUSIC BY MANY LABELLED INTELLIGENT AND SOPHISTICATED POP. THE 15TH OF APRIL IS THE NEW AND MUCH AWAITED SECOND ALBUM RELEASED. “RENDITION OF YOU” IS THE TITLE OF THE ALBUM, THE SINGLE AND THE MUSIC VIDEO.

The follow-up to the reviewers’ favourite and Spellemann award winning first record “Isle of Now” is no less sophisticated, but oh so accessible and immediate. So is the beautifully photographed music video in black and white, shot by Axel Bevreng and Petter Holmern Halvorsen, directed and cut by Kash Khazai. As the by now very recognizable bassist Maya Vik wrote, the band members are extras in their own film. The protagonists are very skilled and sweet cheerleading girls, coming straight from the Norwegian championship (is there really such a thing here, up North?). We cannot wait to hear more from the foursome, and we agree with Dagbladet: Montée must not continue to be a well kept secret for the few. Produced by Anja Kristiansen. Additional photography by Robin Hansen Tangen and Morten Solem. Post production by Hocus Focus and Bengt Ove Sannes (colour grading).

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DISLIKE MR. MILK. IN FACT, THERE IS NOTHING AT ALL TO DISLIKE IN THE NEW COMMERCIAL CAMPAIGN FROM TINEMELK (=TINEMILK) IN COOPERATION WITH THE ADVERTISING AGENCY TRY AND THE PRODUCTION COMPANY PARADOX. IT IS SIMPLY OUTSTANDING.

From the first white and delicate image to the somersault roll in the last one. The film is smart and clever, funny and to the point, surprising and edgy, stereotypical, historical and technological. We love that handsome, Norwegian-American man that can be transformed into whatever we want. He truly reflects how we (=Norwegians) want to see us selves: Trendy, cool and modern at the mountain top with skies on our feet. This is self-irony at its best and we can not wait for the continuation. The project is huge, and Paradox and Try have worked on it for more than six months. However, it shows, and everything is good. The film is shot on Arri Alexa on location – the beautiful Strandafjellet – and in studio. Besides Hocus Focus, which is responsible for editing (Martin Stoltz), online (Haavard Albertsen) and sound design (Johannes Ringen), there are two Swedish post production companies involved: Stopp (colour grading) and Swiss (VFX). Directed by Andreas Riiser, produced by Beate Tangre and post produced by Henriette Carlsen, Hocus Focus. Enjoy!

PIZZA. THE PLEASURE OF PIZZA. PIZZA AS AN ANCHOR IN LIFE. PIZZA AS A LIFELINE. YOUR LIFE AS A PIZZA. WELL, IT IS PERHAPS TO TAKE IT A BIT FAR – THE IDENTIFYING BIT OF IT. HOWEVER, THE NEW FILM FROM DOLLY DIMPLES IS TELLING US A WARM AND SWEET STORY ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THEIR PIZZA.


With a dash of nostalgia in clothing and location, and the reality of growing older… and older…. and older, the film is a bundle of charm. The whole production from A to Å was completed in a period of two weeks by the production company Paradox (and that is not a very long time, we must add). Well done by director Martin Lund, photographer Anders Flatland and producer Gry M. Sætre. The film has also got its own colour grading for cinema in our own brand new grading cinema. So we like it a lot! Post produced by Henriette Carlsen and Hocus Focus: Ove Kenneth Nilsen (editor), Haavard Albertsen (colour grading) and Bengt Ove Sannes (online). Sound mix by Lydhodene and Håkon Lammethun.
