HEAR NO EVIL IS A MUSIC VIDEO FROM DIRECTOR THOMAS LUNDE FOR THE NORWEGIAN SPACE-DISCO PIONEER DISKJOKKE.

The video centers around a female ballet dancer. Her raw physical expression and human texture are in focus. It's all about capturing the human body and movement in its purest form. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen. Edited by Henrik Berge, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen, and sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen.

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.

THE 23TH AND 24TH OF MAY WAS PERFECT DAYS TO BE IN HORTEN FOR A VERT SKATER.

That’s right, vert (as in vertical) skateboarding is here to stay and for some early summer days, national as well as international performers and fans gathered for ramp skating at the Hang-Up vert contest in Horten Skate Park. With high-flying jumps and jams, the skaters excelled with incredible achievements in the more than 13-meter wide ramp.
The driving forces behind the arrangement are enthusiasts Martin Haavde and Gunnar Løge. Løge has built ramps for skaters in Norway for many, many years. He has put down endless hours to help skaters and the excistens of a skater environment. Haavde is a vert skater with many years of experience, and impressively enough he is still going strong with high class and great style after the age of 40. He will continue to create a vert happening that encourages vert skating and helps recruiting new skaters, as well as giving the more experienced riders a goal to push for.
Hocus Focus saw this arrangement as a great event and took the opportunity to make a contribution - with pleasure. There was no official prizemoney included in the contest, so part of the first prize was a top quality promotional film from us. Mats Hatlem - Norway's greatest skating talent at the age of 14 - won the whole competition. Together with his father Petter Hatlem, Hocus Focus put together Mats’ film worthy a champion, edited by Thomas Løvig and colour graded by Mathias Theissen.
