ALREADY A WINNER ON THE SCREENS AT CINEMAS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY: THE NORWEGIAN FEATURE FILM PORNOPUNG – AND IT LOOKS LIKE A MILLION DOLLARS.

Hocus Focus and Haavard Albertsen have had the honour of contributing with excellent colour grading work on the film. It was a really long way to go, taking the book written by Mads Larsen some years ago and adapting it to film. The production company Feil Film with director Johan Kaos and producer Ravn Vikhaug have even tested the up and coming way to finance a movie called Crowed Funding. That makes it even a greater achievement and more fun to be able to call the film a success – congratulation to you all. Just a little recap before we leave Pornopung to new audiences: It is a film about a young guy called Christian who moves to Oslo to finish his studies. He teams up with two other guys, and the most important thing in life at this point becomes how to get laid. The author claimed that the book would change the life of every man between 18 and 35 and the film Pornopung has been reviewed as both exceptional funny and a groundbreaking movie. To conclude - run to the nearest cinema and be surprised and shocked.

IT IS ALREADY OUT THERE, THE NEW SINGLE FROM GABRIELLE, BERGEN AND NORWAY.

After a massively successful breakthrough in 2011, Gabrielle Leithaug has arrived back on the music & video scene with the first single REGN FRA BLÅ HIMMEL (or Rain from a Blue Sky) from her forthcoming second album. It is great to have the little bit scary redhead back and quite funny to, to read the review at the British website Scandipop: " A darker shade of pop song, with a tense, dramatic and ever so slightly grimey production. But as this is Scandinavia we’re dealing with here, she’s obviously plonked a poptastic chorus over the top of things too. And thankfully so. All order restored. A brilliant return to form from Ms Gabrielle, and perhaps her best track to date, despite taking into consideration the corkers which have gone before it". Not too shabby, indeed. The video production reflects the reference to the grimey and raw, as the shoot was really not intended to be a music video but a behind the scene film from the studio. The location is New York, and Gabrielle's partner in crime as they are bad and angry and setting fire to a teddy bear is a friend of the photographer who lives in NY. Directed and produced by Kristoffer Klunk. Post produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus. Edited by Henrik Berge, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. The opening logo is a perfect summary of it all: A scruffy, black & white hand-drawn teddy bear with a bat - enjoy!

IT IS QUITE CHARMING, THE LITAGO COW FROM TINE. WITH KIND EYES, ONE RED AND ONE PURPLE HORN, IT IS EASY TO REMEMBER THAT THIS COW SIGNIFIES MORE THAN THE USUAL SIMPLE, PLAIN AND RATHER BORING MILK.

Litago is a series of beverages based on milk and the latest commercial is focusing on Litago Original Chocolate Milk in particular. This drink of mild taste is suitable for both the young and the old, as a drink for the thirsty and to meals. What is different now? Well, with this commercial Tine is announcing a better and extra looooong chocolate taste and we will not speculate in what that actually means. Some hard facts about TINE, which is Norway's largest producer, distributor and exporter of dairy products: The company is organised as a cooperative owned by more than 15.000 Norwegian dairy farmers. Each member is a shareholder in the cooperative to which they deliver 1.4 billion litres of cow's milk every year. Pretty fascinating stuff. The production company is Qvisten Animation, the director is Khim Tengesdal and the producer is Irene Sødahl Didrichson. Post produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus: Online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen, sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. Litago loves fun, fun, fun and if you are encouraged to play along, visit Litago's Facebook site. Have more fun!

THE NEWS FROM GRILSTAD IS A SUPER SALAMI. THE COMMERCIAL FILM PROMOTING THE PRODUCT IS SUPER TOO.

Like a comic strip in earthly colours and with thick lines of a pencil, it tells the story of a professor in search for the perfect sausage. The film starts up with the biographical story of this professor, who revisits the past to find the secret of the Salami. So he does, and with high technological tools and much drama, he manages to develop the new super salami. The storyline, and the way we follow our cartoon character and superhero through animated cartoon squares, are all excellent in form and narrative. To improve your knowledge on Grilstad, we can tell you some basic facts. Such as that the Grilstad's assortment consists of air-dried ham and sliced salami, and further that Grilstad AB has three sister companies in Norway: Grilstad fabrikker in Trondheim, Stranda Spekemat outside Ålesund, and Alf Bredrup outside Hamar. Last and least, Grilstad Fabrikker AS has been exporting air-dried and sliced products to Sweden for 20 years. So now you know. Perhaps you can enjoy the different and noticeable commercial from the production company Qvisten Animation and director Stig Bergqvist even more. Produced by Irene Sødahl Didrichson and post produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus. Online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen.

COMING UP WITH COMPLIMENTS GUARANTEED, A NEW COMMERCIAL FILM FROM MATCH. DIRECTOR JOON BRANDT HAS PUT HIS SIGNIFICANT MARK OF QUALITY AND SEDUCTIVENESS ON THE PRODUCTION.

Like no other commercial promoting fashion, we are brought into what seems to be inside a pyramid in the land of Egypt, with old and pre-historic hieroglyphics from vanished times. Sand and parts of bricks are falling down beside what appears to be a beautiful woman with amazing eagle wings. As she raises and starts walking, she is transformed into a very chick modern woman in a light leather jacket, with tight jeans and with those high heels on. The campaign is as incredible as the visuals, as you are promised to get your money back if you buy fashion clothing at Match and nobody gives you a compliment. Beat that! To remind you, the deal is only for a selection of clothing, and not all the pieces in the Match stores. The production company is Go happy! and the film is produced by Miriam Pedersen Eeg. Post-produced by Pia Nyhus and the following team from Hocus Focus: Editor Henrik Berge, online and colour graded by Haavard Albertsen and sound design by Johannes Ringen.
