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.

COMING UP: A COMMERCIAL BY THE PEOPLE TO THE PEOPLE. PIZZA GRANDIOSA IS AMONG THE FAVOURITE FOODS IN NORWAY.

It is therefore an excellent idea to invite more than 250 extras to part-take in a promotional film for the new innovation of a product - Grandiosa Kebab. What an unbeatable combination! Director Steinjo Grieg-Halvorsen and Tangrystan Productions must have had their hands full, making sure that this bunch of people was filmed on green screen on various locations in our long-stretched country. The result is fascinating, colourful and quirky, with a live scarecrow, rhythmic head movements, a blue car, hitchhikers and mountaintops. Air balloons and rolling pizzas. Vikings, belly dancers and cowboys. Grandiosa’s history of engaging commercials to be remembered is thus well kept by producer Kristian Hajdu, line producer Anja Kristiansen and photographer Nico Poulsson. Much fun for post producer Ole-Arild Svendsen and his team from Hocus Focus as well. The film was edited Ove Kenneth Nilsen, and it is not hard to see that this Grandiosa-fun kept the guys working online and with VFX busy for a while. That is Haavard Albertsen (who also did the colour grading), Bengt Ove Sannes and Mathias Theissen. Sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen.

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.
