STATOIL HAS A LONG TRADITION IN SUPPORTING UP AND COMING TALENTS WITHIN SPORTS, CULTURE AND SCIENCE. FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS, THE MULTI-NATIONAL COMPANY HAS SUPPORTED NORWEGIAN HEROES OF TOMORROW.

It is all about young people with big dreams and great ambitions, who got what it takes to succeed. In a new information and motivation campaign produced by The Film Agency, four films are telling the childhood stories of four such heroes. First one out is our number 1 star Martin Ødegaard, the winner of Statoil’s football scholarship 2014. Through the faces of different children, old footage as well as new, he tells us about a childhood of training at the cost of friends, parties and all-nighters of PlayStation. Martin Ødegaard believes it is not so much about talent, but more about training and willpower. So does the cross-country skier Astrid Uhrenholt Jacobsen, who also is a mentor for the Statoil Hero-Programme. The musician and winner of a scholarship in 2012, Mr Jarle Bernhoft tells the story of a shy and strange kid, who found his confidence through a guitar. We see all that individuality and hearing his voice telling us how important it is to believe in ourselves, even when nobody else does so. The fourth film is from Stine and from a science perspective. She remembers her childhood curiosity of everything - why does the wind blow and how can a plane fly? Stine has kept this curiosity and puts it into her work to find solutions we will need in the future. All of the films are beautifully put together in a mixture of past, present and future.

Directed by Andrea Eckerbom, produced by Caroline Werring and post-produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus. Edited by Henrik Berge, online by Bengt Ove Sannes and Mathias Theissen, colour grading by Haavard Albertsen and Mathias Theissen. Sound design by Erik Ljunggren, Preben Grieg-Halvorsen and Vidar Grande.

GET IS A LEADING FIBRE-BASED BROADBAND PROVIDER IN NORWAY, WITH A NETWORK STRETCHING FROM HAMMERFEST IN THE NORTH TO KRISTIANSAND IN THE SOUTH.

In their latest campaign produced by Small Film, two short films remind us of that the summer is already a memory. Images are memories. A jump from the dock into the sunny water with your friends has been given that wage and yellow colour wrapping of nostalgia. Nice and smart from one of the new Small Film directors Tor Einstadblad, who is acclaimed for his warm and visual style. Also an excellent encouragement to save, store and restore your memories in the cloud with Get Sky. Just to make it clear: Get Sky is included in your broadband subscription. And remember, as the second film indicates: Accidents do happen. The ultimate nightmare of every user of any sort of computer or other technological device for that matter – a whole glass of ice coffee or something similar and wet all over your keyboard. In slow motion – so you can really get the feel of it.

Produced by Elisabeth Enstad, post-produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus: Edited by Thomas Løvig, online by Mathias Theissen and Haavard Albertsen, colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. Sound design by Frode Løes Hvatum and Lydhodene.
