INFINITUM IS ENCOURAGING ALL OF US TO PAWN OUR BOTTLES AND CANS AND EVERYTHING ELSE POSSIBLE TO PAWN – ALSO DURING VACATIONS.
Fun fact: In 2014 Norsk Resirk changed its name to Infinitum. The new name is inspired by the infinite number of times you can recycle a bottle or a can.

"MER" IS INSPIRED BY THE HARSH GRASP OF CONSUMERISM, AND HOW IT CAN MAKE US BLIND BY GREED IN THE PURSUIT FOR MATERIAL GOODS.
Director Kristoffer Klunk's story is set in a post apocalyptic world, where a group of nomads collect the remains of a lost society. But as their collection grows bigger, so does their desire for more. All that glitters is not gold.
This video was largely shot on Karmøy, an island located on the west coast of Norway, but also 1883 meters above the ocean on the peak of Gaustatoppen, a vast mountain overlooking 1/6th of the country.
The large flying factories were made by Steamheads, an Oslo-based VFX-house known for their work on films like Harry Potter and Elysium, and the rest of the post-production was completed at Hocus Focus.

THE LATEST CAMPAIGN FROM TANGRYSTAN IS ALL ABOUT THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES OF OSLO POINTING A FINGER AT ITS INHABITANTS AND SAYING – PULL YOURSELVES TOGETHER, PEOPLE!
The reason for this adult education-like message includes a green bag and the sorting of recycleable leftovers, which obviously isn’t good enough. The film communicates loud and clear. However what we love about it is the fabulous panoramic view of Oslo city including Barcode and Plaza Hotel, accompanied by an excellent constructed and fictional watertank. This for the purpose of exemplifying the scale of waste they are talking about – and it works both visually and textually. The film is directed by Andrea Eckerbom and produced for Internet. The campaign also includes large outdoor boards, with the intention of reaching and reminding even more citizens of Oslo.
Post-production by Hocus Focus with editor Henrik Berge, Mathias Theissen was VFX supervisor on the set, colour grading and VFX by Haavard Albertsen. Sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen.
