ANY NATION WITH SELF-RESPECT HAS ITS OWN CHOCOLATE FACTORY AND TRADITIONAL CHOCOLATE PRODUCTS - THIS IS HOW THE NIDAR COMPANY INTRODUCES ITSELF AND WE SIMPLY MUST AGREE.

Established in 1912 and with a history of more than a hundred year, Nidar is the leading supplier of sweets in Norway. With this vividly in mind, it is quite understandable why a brilliant animation film is made to promote Nidar Favoritter (= the favourite chocolates from Nidar put together in a bag). It brings great pleasure to see some familiar little men in the colourful location of a factory making, cutting, decorating and blasting the famous pieces of chocolate. Just like in Santa Clause's Christmas present factory. We can name at random Troika, Stratos and Gullmarsipan. The next big question is, why are the little men so familiar? Well, that is because the same guy who created the figures in Wallace and Gromit made them. Honour and glory to the production company Animasjonsdepartementet and director Martin Engh. The same goes to producer Jakob Thomessen, who managed to complete the production in only ten days, as opposed to the normally scheduled counting twelve. Breaking records, in other words. Post production by Jon Anders Klausen and Hocus Focus with online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. Enjoy both film and chocolate.

IT IS SUMMER, IT IS GREEN AND IT IS HITTING THE ROAD ON A MOTORBIKE. OH JOY.

This is not only for the youngsters, and that is because health comes from within. From the heart, as a matter of fact, and this is seemingly the message of the latest commercial film from Vita. The butter is for everybody. The active and fit 40+ men playing football in the park and the family on the beach snorkelling away in the blue ocean. Then comes the serious part, with the unpleasant question directed to you and me, whether we are aware that there is far too many of us who are stricken by heart diseases. Women as much as men. To prevent that, there is a simple rule: Learn the difference between good fat and bad fat. Ok, it is a bit simplified, but the commercial explains and illustrates it very well. Vita Hjertego is evidently the solution. The production company Fantefilm is responsible for this feel good film that brings forward an immense longing for the summer. Perhaps not so surprising, taking into account that the crew simply was FORCED to travel far, far away to the southern hemisphere and to Cape Town to find the summer. Poor creatures... Directed by the one and only Roar Uthaug, produced by Hugo Hagemann Føsker, post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus: Edited by Thomas Løvig, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen, sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. We love summer... and good health.

POSTEN IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT SERVICES IN THE LONG STRETCHED COUNTRY OF NORWAY. WE ALL WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR LOVED ONES RECEIVE THEIR BIRTHDAY PRESENTS IN TIME OR THAT THEY GET THINGS FORGOTTEN OR OTHER IMPORTANT MUST HAVES SAFELY BACK.


This fact might have overshadowed the other services so important to us from the old but transformable Norwegian state institutions with a long history of serving the public. The old dinosaur has also managed to keep up with time. In these digital times we must not forget the service Digipost. A film promoted this service a while ago, and it includes a very sweet dog that first deliver mail from the mailbox (paper in case you have forgotten) but ends up delivering a computer to his master. The production company with the descriptive name of ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY has made a sweet film with useful information about Digipost, which can make your day just a little bit simpler by helping you receive your mail digitally. We are here talking about important mail such as invoices, health- and insurance papers, letters from public services and so on. Directed by Mathis Fürst and produced by Helene Hovda Lunde. Post produced by Jon Anders Klausen and Hocus Focus: Edited by Thomas Løvig, colour grading by Haavard Albertsen, online by Mathias Theissen and sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen.

WE HAVE TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT A SAVIOUR IN MANY NORWEGIANS EVERYDAY LIFE, NAMELY KIWI. THE FOOD SUPPLIER WITH A GROCERY STORE ON EVERY CORNER. KIWI IS A FIGHTER.

Always coming up with new areas of commitment and important ways to get us - the consumer - to buy the right kind of products. These areas of commitments lead to a whole lot of commercial films and marketing. In many years Kiwi has for instance focused on fruit and vegetables, and told us through our television screens how it materialises in good deals in their grocery stores. Now is a new film out there, informing us about "nøkkelhullsproduktene". Just as in real life, it had to be a very young man serving the cash register, who has been giving the task of telling us about the food products with a keyhole. It is all very recognisable - the youthness, the greeness in colour and the greeness of foods. What does the keyhole means, exactly? Well, the food- and health authorities in the Nordic countries of Norway, Sweden and Denmark have established the keyhole as a common symbol to make it easier for the consumer to choose healthier alternatives in particular groups of foods. So there you have it - from the production company One Big Happy Family. Directed by Sebastian Torngren Wartin, produced by Helene Hovda Lunde, post produced by Jon Anders Klausen and Hocus Focus. Thomas Løvig (editor), Haavard Albertsen (colour grading), Mathias Theissen and Zoltan Farkas (online). Last but not least, Johannes Ringen (sound design). Be inspired to a healthier (and cheaper?) life.

COMING UP: A COLOURFUL, SURPRISING AND FUNNY COMMERCIAL FROM DIRECTOR ROAR UTHAUG AND FANTEFILM.

Yes, you heard right. The makers of Cold Prey (2006) and Escape (2012) have actually made something light and bright. And you can watch it on your telly right now. Starting up with clinical white and the boring setting of a pharmacy, the film ends up in a firework of strange costumes and happy people, singing while dancing. The Musical genre is totally taking over, and all of this because of some fish in a can. And here it goes, the history lesson of today. It takes us all the way back to 1957 when Stabburet bought a small cannery in Fredrikstad called East Norway Canning. Going from pir to mackerel, the business has evolved into today’s genius and unbelievable Norwegian spread of mackerel in tomato in a yellow can. A classic was born! Every year approximately 108 million slices of bread with this is eaten - say no more. Much fun from the production company Fantefilm and producer Hugo Hagemann Føsker. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus, with Ove Kenneth Nilsen (editor), Haavard Albertsen (online and colour grading) and Preben Grieg-Halvorsen (sound design). Remember a healthy advice: One slice of bread with mackerel in tomato covers your body’s craving for Omega-3 for the whole day. Good luck with that.
