COMING UP: WE ARE TALKING TELECOM, MOBILES, COVERAGE AREAS AND LOCK-IN PERIODS. THESE ARE EVER SO IMPORTANT ISSUES OF OUR DAY-TO-DAY LIFE.

In a new campaign from the production company Small Film, Spaceworld tries to help us out with our struggles of communication (with a little help from the giant Telenor). Help with what? Well, to get the best out of our cell phones - which one to buy, where it works and why it is not scary with lock-in agreements. A sympathetic and charming young man walks and talks a great deal about his sister, who we actually also do meet. The locations sweep recognisable places such as Oslo’s Blå and Solli Plass, and the wild mountains of Norefjell. However, the most fascinating part of the films is the use of a film title as slogan: Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! (=Bind meg! Elsk meg!). To use Pedro Almadóvar's movie classic from the year of 1990, really spices up the whole concept of telecom vocabulary - if you ask me. Really refreshing from director Michael Pfleghar and producer Elisabeth Enstad, who managed to complete the Spaceworld films faster than lightning. Post produced by Jon Anders Klausen and Hocus Focus. With Henrik Berge (editor), Mathias Theissen (online and colour grading) and Preben Grieg-Halvorsen (sound design). The conclusion must be, no matter where you are, and whom you need to get in touch with - don't be afraid to be tied down.

IT HAS BEEN OUT THERE FOR A WHILE, BUT IT DOES NOT MAKE IT ANY LESS BEAUTIFUL: THE SONG AND MUSIC VIDEO DU ER NÆR (=YOU ARE CLOSE) FROM THE NORWEGIAN SINGER AND ACTOR GUNNHILD SUNDLI.

The opening sequence of the sky, seagulls and the city of Oslo creates a kind of poetic realism that remains throughout the video. The low-key song provides calmness and the lyrics do the same. It is all filled with safety, honesty, faithfulness and love. Gunnhild has the exceptional ability to sing and perform in such a way that overcomes what might have been perceived as clichés if done bye other artists. With a voice clear as a bell and a genuine honesty of every word she is singing, it is simply lovely. The images from Fantefilm live their own life in a way, as they tell fragmented stories in black and white and colour about skating boys, old, suspicious ladies, about a man and a dog and about sweet Gunnhild. However the song and the images are brought together in a soothing paste - almost like they are dancing. Directed by Sara Gabriella Rønneberg and produced by Audun Lynghol Wittenberg. Post produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus: Edited by Henrik Berge, online and colour grading by Mathias Theissen. For more high-key tones from the Norwegian X-Gåte vocalist, close your eyes and check out the album "Tankerop".

IMPRESSED, CURIOUS AND CONFUSED. THESE ARE THE FIRST THREE WORDS THAT COME TO MIND AFTER THE FIRST MEETING WITH THE COMMERCIAL FILM PROMOTING THE BRAND ST. HALLVARD.

Impressed because of the classy black and white shots of a surprisingly familiar story that manage to drag you into another world in no time. Curious because of the obvious reference to the cinematic version of Knut Hamsun’s HUNGER from 1966. Confused because what am I missing? What is the link between a starving Knut Hamsun and Hallvard the legend, who tried to save a pursued woman and later became Oslo’s guardian angel? An even better question: What has all this to do with fashion? Well, in the end, all we need to know is that it looks like a million dollars in all its historical gloom, the label has much in common with the guardian angel in question AND the fashion is for men who feels a sort of hunger and who need to be armoured. The film is for but also by men. Directed by Jakob Rørvik, produced by Richard Patterson and the production company Kandidat. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus with the team of Haavard Albertsen (colour grading), Bengt Ove Sannes (online) and Preben Grieg-Halvorsen (music and sound design). Well done!

WE LOVE THE CINEMA AND THE WINE GUM SWEETS GODT & BLANDET ARE ALL READY WELL KNOWN BY NORWEGIAN CINEMAGOERS.

The latest commercial from Malaco has an excellent slogan as it incorporates several of the important features of the sweeties. The slogan "Farlig godt" (= Dangerously delicious) refers to the nervous and automatic eating of goodies while seeing something exciting at the cinema screen, especially thriller, horror, slasher or anything in between. In this short and very effectual commercial from the master of terror on Norwegian film, the production company Fantefilm, the frightening creature with a mask and a hood is more enough to get the chill. The boy in the dark corner with huge and scared eyes in combination with the crackling and sudden LOUD noise from the Godt & Blandet bag are giving it all away. Oh, but what is happening next? We want to know... Directed by Andreas Lisberg and produced by Elle-Beth Lønnestad. The post production team from Hocus Focus consisted of the following people: Producer Pia Nyhus, editor Henrik Berge, online and colour grading by Bengt Ove Sannes and last but not least, sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen and Johannes Ringen. The advice and request must be - see more movies, eat more sweets and be scared.

IT IS THAT SPARKLING TIME OF THE YEAR. THE TIME WHEN POSTEN IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT SERVICES IN OUR LONG STRETCHED AND COLD COUNTRY. WE ALL WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR LOVED ONES GET THEIR CHRISTMAS PRESENTS IN TIME.

The stars of the fabulous Norwegian Handball team are showing us just how much fun sending a gift can be. We know Christmas is here when the girls are playing European Championship or some other great event. Posten has been a loyal sponsor of the women handball in many, many years. Therefore, the production company with the descriptive name of ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY has made an impressing and motivating team building-like commercial film with the most profiled players of the team. Yes, we love Linn Jørum Sulland and Heidi Løke. Not because they’re blonde, but because they can throw a ball like no one else, as well as take a beating. The postal service make sure that the girls’ glass bowl of a present reach their beloved coach Thorir in time for Christmas eve. In a very limited time, of course. Oh, what a Christmas spirit from director Mathis Fürst and producer Helene Hovda Lunde to all of us Handball fans.
