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.

Conclusion: A great experience with an equally great result. We at Hocus Focus are thankful and inspired by all the energy from the crew and contestants of the event and by taking part in the production from A to Å.

A NEW YEAR ALWAYS BRINGS WITH IT A FRESH START FOR A WHOLE LOT OF TV-SERIES. APPEARING ON OUR SCREENS THESE DAYS ARE NO LESS THAN THREE AWESOME NORWEGIAN SERIES PARTLY POST-PRODUCED AT HOCUS FOCUS.

Yes, we have been busy in 2014. But finally, we can brag about yet another season of HELT PERFEKT. About season 4 of the situation comedy slash mockumentary, we can only say that it is getting better and better. Thomas Giertsen and Ine Jansen are totally believable, and scene after scene are so embarrassing to watch, that it really hurts – well done. We are eternally grateful to contribute to this series, this time with online work by Shanon Moratti. Produced by Feelgood. Great humour as well, as we are invited by TVNorge to COSTA DEL KONGSVIK. Lene Kongsvik Johansen leaves the schoolsystem in Norway behind and brings many of the beloved characters to a charter hotel at Gran Canaria. Wenche is tired before she gets there, of course, Birgitte is desperate to save her marriage and the lovely Alfa male Alexander are ready to use a couple of trick to seduce the ladies. To be continued… Colour grading by Mathias Theissen and effect shots by Bengt Ove Sannes. Produced by Seefood TV. There is also much to laugh about, when you tag along PÅ TUR MED DAG OTTO. However of a more existential kind. Without a bike, but with great dreams and many challenges to do things he never has done before, it is at times a tough ride. His partner in crime Kristian Ødegård is still by his side, which is a good thing. The former bicycle champion managed to scare us all as he began spitting blood in the middle of a triathlon in England. Which leaves us with the questions: Is sport really healthy and how will all of this end? Tune in on recommendation from Hocus Focus. Colour grading by Mathias Theissen. Produced by Seefood TV.
