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.
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!
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.
