DO YOU FEEL A LITTLE PLAYFUL? THE NEW AND FRESH COMMERCIAL FROM KONDOMERIET IS ASKING YOU THIS QUESTION. THE PRODUCT RECOMMENDED FOR ALL THOSE WHO SAY YES AND MAYBE IS A SELECTION OF LUXURIOUS INTIMATE CREAMS.

To focus on the film, the team behind the idea of this short commercial must be praised for a creative and imaginative illustration of a perhaps difficult product to market. Placing a giggling couple in a huge bed and push it down a hill on a bumpy slope is quite stylish. So is the sound effects, which work like a perfect mind setter together with the black and the red coloured fabrics, fluttering in the wind in the Norwegian nature. What a joy from director Ola Martin Fjeld. Produced by Filmfaktisk and Bjørn Glestad. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus, with online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen.

COMING UP: SPRING CLEANING. WASH THE WINTER AWAY WITH JERNIA AND THE SEEMINGLY AMAZING KäRCHER HIGH-PRESSURE HOSE OR WATER JET, IF YOU LIKE. IT IS LITERARY EVERY MAN’S MAN WET DREAM AND IT IS FINALLY COMING TO USE IN THIS COMMERCIAL FROM THE PRODUCTION COMPANY SMALLFILM.


How to use this macho wonder of an essential tool (or was it toy?) is exemplified by a quite ordinary man. You can actually clean the driveway, your car tires, your gutter and your boat AND have fun at the same time. The best part of it: You don’t have to make an effort and get sweaty. What about that? There is no doubt in our mind that the desire to buy and to clean will be teased. A fine film with the smell of spring from director Michael Pfleghar and Smallfilm. Produced by Rut Solli and Elisabeth Enstad and post produced by Henriette Carlsen and Hocus Focus: Thomas Løvig (editing), Haavard Albertsen (colour grading and online) and Johannes Ringen (sound design).

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DISLIKE MR. MILK. IN FACT, THERE IS NOTHING AT ALL TO DISLIKE IN THE NEW COMMERCIAL CAMPAIGN FROM TINEMELK (=TINEMILK) IN COOPERATION WITH THE ADVERTISING AGENCY TRY AND THE PRODUCTION COMPANY PARADOX. IT IS SIMPLY OUTSTANDING.

From the first white and delicate image to the somersault roll in the last one. The film is smart and clever, funny and to the point, surprising and edgy, stereotypical, historical and technological. We love that handsome, Norwegian-American man that can be transformed into whatever we want. He truly reflects how we (=Norwegians) want to see us selves: Trendy, cool and modern at the mountain top with skies on our feet. This is self-irony at its best and we can not wait for the continuation. The project is huge, and Paradox and Try have worked on it for more than six months. However, it shows, and everything is good. The film is shot on Arri Alexa on location – the beautiful Strandafjellet – and in studio. Besides Hocus Focus, which is responsible for editing (Martin Stoltz), online (Haavard Albertsen) and sound design (Johannes Ringen), there are two Swedish post production companies involved: Stopp (colour grading) and Swiss (VFX). Directed by Andreas Riiser, produced by Beate Tangre and post produced by Henriette Carlsen, Hocus Focus. Enjoy!

COMING UP: A HOT AND BRAND NEW MUSIC VIDEO FROM ANINE STANG CALLED DOMINOES. AFTER YESTERDAY’S GREAT RELEASE PARTY, WE HAVE ALL ACCESS TO THE EXCITING WORLD OF THE ARTIST AND HER LOVE STORY DRAMA.

Many will remember Anine from the television program Det store korslaget 2011. She is now one of very few Norwegian artists who the insanely successful producer duo Stargate has picked out to join a workshop in New York. Wow. A double wow for the fact that she has managed to bring in the all-time Norwegian handball-hunk-star Kristian Kjelling as her music video boyfriend. Good for us that he suffers from a bad back (or was it a bad knee?) and has the time for a little posing. Anyway, this spectacular video – a Petter Tangmyhr film, more precisely – is shot in Stockholm by Paul Evans with an Arri Alexa. The look is all blue, moody and wonderful and Haavard Albertsen, Mathias Theissen (colour grading and VFX) and Ove Kenneth Nilsen (editing) are much to blame for that. To wrap it up, we are particularly fascinated by The Memory Eraser thingy (what a bless that would be), in addition to Anine’s Kylie-look-alike dance moves. It is all very professional and we wish you all the success in the world. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus.

COMING UP: UNIBET HAS GONE ALL ON ONE FRONTMAN IN THE NEW COMMERCIAL CAMPAIGN. THE COMPANY, WHICH WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1997 AND IN THESE DAYS CAN BE FOUND IN MORE THAN A 100 COUNTRIES, LAYS IT ALL ON THE SHOULDERS OF OUR FOOTBALL HERO FROM THE 1990’S: RONNY JOHNSEN.


His heydays at Manchester United and with the Norwegian National Football Team, may not be familiar for the grand total of Unibet’s 5.1 million customers. However, in Norway we know and remember… The film is a real encouragement to do some serious betting from the production company Fantefilm and our favourite Norwegian horror director Roar Uthaug (Cold Prey, 2006). The film is shot by Anders Flatland, edited together by Ove Kenneth Nilsen with great skills and style, followed by crude colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. It is much appreciated fun with clients who want to give their films a very particular and specific look. It is jus as much fun when the team at Hocus Focus manage to meet those specific wishes and demands. The sound mix has also that distinctive Unibet mark, created by Johannes Ringen. Produced by Hugo Hagemann Føsker, Fantefilm and post produced by Henriette Carlsen, Hocus Focus.
