YES, THE TIMES ARE BRIGHTER AND THE SPRING IS HERE – VERY, VERY SOON. AS A CONSEQUENCE, THE NEW SPRING COLLECTION FROM JEAN PAUL CLOTHES IS STACKED IN STORES ALL OVER OUR STILL WINTERY COUNTRY.

The film directed and produced by the Norwegian fashion photographer Jørgen Gomnæs certainly brings with it a touch of warmer (read better) times. It is green, it is flowery and not to forget, it is dry, even with the water fountain in the background. Energetic and cool music created by Mustang set the tone of a commercial filled with happiness and fun, activities and cabriolets. The title En Arriere en Avant”, says it all – even for those of us who don’t understand French. The boys are smiling with bright teeth and the girls have their hair in ponytails as they are making smart jokes – or so it seems. Dogs are running, Frisbees are thrown and the dress code is blue. All this together mean that you will perhaps get the urge to get hold of some lighter clothing. Tempted by JPC? The new collection can be found in the stores of VIC, Match and Boys of Europe. Post produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus with Henrik Berge (offline) and Haavard Albertsen (online and colour grading).

COMING UP: HO-HO-HO CHRISTMAS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER AND IT IS TIME TO START WRITING THOSE CHRISTMAS CARDS. ELITE FOTO IN AND THE ADVERTISING AGENCY TALKING NATION IS PROMOTING THE GOOD OLD FASHION CARD BEFORE CHRISTMAS – THE ONE MADE OF PAPER.

This commercial is pointing a finger at you. Yes you, who always are so fortunate as to receive a Christmas card in spite of never bother to send one yourself. And make no mistake: To be defined as a Christmas card, it must have the capacity of standing upon a mantelpiece. Hence, e-mails, SMS and other social media regards do not count. Time is often an issue, as the rather conservative man in the deep leather armchair is saying. However Elite Foto can assure you that without any further delay, the REAL and good old fashion card can be made at www.elitefoto.no. We can sense the feeling of Christmas holiday, much thanks to director Jørgen Lauritzen and producer Kaja Olsen who managed to be the first commercial Christmas film at Hocus Focus in the year of 2013. Edited by Henrik Berge, online and colour grading by Mathias Theissen and sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen.

COMING UP: A BRIGHT AND HAPPY LITTLE FILM WITH DANCING FLOWERS OF A SPECIAL CHARACTER. JUST WHAT WE NEED AS THE FALL APPROACHES AND THE DARKEST OF HOURS ARE GETTING CLOSER. IT IS A GOOD TIME TO ADVERTISE FOR FLOWERS.

Norway’s largest wholly-owned chain of florists with more than hundred stores all over the country - from Tromsø in the north to Kristiansand in the south – is doing just that. In a bright living-room, we are lucky to meet a dancing family dressed up as flowers in bright colours, doing their moves of joy. All to promote the three-for-two campaign at Mester Grønn. Pick and choose orchids and whatever you might need of accessories and the Mester Grønn florist store of your choice will treat you with the cheapest of the three products. A good deal, and you probably need some fresh flowers right now! These happy news come from the producer of horror and dread, namely the production company Fantefilm with director Andreas “Bombom” Lisberg and producer Elle-Beth Lønnestad. Post-produced by Hocus Focus and Pia Nyhus with the team Henrik Berge (editor) Bengt Ove Sannes (colour grading and touch up) and Preben Grieg-Halvorsen (sound design).

THE WELL-KNOWN TV-CHEF LISE FINCKENHAGEN HAS SPENT THE SUMMER VISITING FARMERS ALL OVER NORWAY, TO TASTE AND TALK ABOUT THE SEASONAL TEMPTATIONS.

These glimpses of colourful vegetables, fruits and berries create the latest commercial campaign from Bama and the Norwegian/Los Angeles based production company The King of Popcorn. Director Sten Hellevig takes us to the most beautiful places in Norway and provides us with plenty of knowledge and arguments for choosing Norwegian products. Roy Hasle’s carrots in Østfold, Thorleif Muller’s strawberries from Nøtterøy and Jan Ove Nes in Hardanger, where you can find the best plums, of course: All the products reeks of quality. And the series of films look as crispy and fresh as the fruits and vegetables they represents. Norwegian nature and health at its best. Produced by Terez Hollo Klausen and Håvard Hana, post produced by Jon Anders Klausen and Hocus Focus. A lot of films demand a lot of people: Edited by Ove Kenneth Nilsen, Henrik Berge and freelancer Vesa Happonen. Excellent colour grading that set you in a summer mood, by Haavard Albertsen. Online by Bengt Ove Sannes and sound design by Christian Schaaning, with contributions from Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. Enjoy and stay green and healthy.
