THE ONLY COMFORT IN STATING THAT THE SUMMER IS ON THE WANE, IS THE ASSURANCE OF THAT THE FALL MEANS THE OPENING OF A NEW TELEVISION SEASON.

Coming up is the promo for KJENDISBARNEVAKTEN (=the celebrity baby-sitter) from the production company Fantefilm. It is quite funny that a company known for its horror movies - like The Cold Prey trilogy - is responsible for promoting childcare. Together with director Thomas Cappelen Malling (also famous for his Norwegian Ninja film in which everything is possible), they do the promotion very well indeed. They capture the tricks and pranks of the little devils perfectly by letting the host Håvard Lilleheie talk calm and sensible about giving children respect. At the same time he is tagged by the children, who are popping up in the colourful background. The always hysterically funny moustache is there, of course, together with the goatee and the round glasses. The simple setting, the giggling children and the serious Lilleheie work perfectly - an excellent promo! TV3 is the new concept owner of this Television series. The first season was broadcasted at NRK last fall, and the first celebrity up for one of his life’s biggest challenges is no less than FrP-politician Per Sandberg - a very interesting choice. I don't know who to feel sorry for, Mr Sandberg or the children Trym, Leona, Tiril and Alexander. Produced by Elle-Beth Lønnestad, post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus: Edited by Ove Kenneth Nilsen, grading and online by Haavard Albertsen. Sound design by Johannes Ringen.

IT IS URBAN AND IT IS YOUNG. IT IS TIME FOR KAOZ - THE NEW GENERATION OF TIMEKEEPERS. WE ARE REFERRING TO THE BRAND KAOZ, THE WATCHES THEY ARE PRODUCING AND A NEW COMMERCIAL CAMPAIGN FROM BRANDTGRUPPEN AS.

The city is the main character of this film, with its grey charm and its graffiti on high-rise block walls. The youngsters are the coolest of the cool skaters, basketball players, street dancers and bikers. The fingernails on the girls' hands are long and coloured, the black leather is thick and the sneakers are all around. With rapid editing and fast, athletic movements, the commercial appear as a contemporary symphony of a global city that could be located anywhere. It is rough, tough and real, and the music gives it a relaxed and balanced mood. Yes, a commercial seldom works better than this: The images, the music and the editing - all for one. We love it and I want that watch on my wrist! From the always excellent director and producer Joon Brandt, together with Hocus Focus and editor Ove Kenneth Nilsen. Colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. Post produced by Pia Nyhus.

IT IS ALREADY OUT THERE: THE NEW COMMERCIAL CAMPAIGN FROM KOMPLETT.NO. THE COMPANY IS NORWAY'S LARGEST INTERNET SHOP OF IT PRODUCTS, AMONG OTHER THINGS.

We love the slogan "Trusted by Geeks since 1996". It is both humorous and reflects the historical force of an IT net company operating for more than 10 years. A funny and perhaps ironic comment to our contemporary time and development. We are aware that a geek knows his stuff, and the geeks of Komplett are a wonderful mix of the mad professor and the Norwegian nerd. The pure joy and mad excitement of the geek while testing the Samsung TV that can be turned on and off and volume controlled without touch, are wonderful. So is the green light from the screens, the dots and lines that makes his eyes glow through thick glasses, while looking and configuring PCs on specification from you - the buyer - exactly as you want and need it. With a broad spectre of components to choose from, treated with genuine love and care, in addition to a three-year guarantee, Komplett.no is not kidding. This is the real thing! The production company is Babusjka. The films are produced by Mads Astrup Rønning and directed by Susanne Falkum Løvik. Post produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus: Edited by Henrik Berge, colour graded and online by Haavard Albertsen. Welcome back to the late summer of 2012, and remember that geeks are trustworthy!

IT IS ALREADY OUT THERE. IMAGINE: THE VERY HOT AND VERY CATCHY MUSIC VIDEO FROM TONE DAMLI FEATURING ERIC SAADE.

Everything in this video looks great and the visuals are fantastic. The location (the house, the boat, the swimming pool and the view), the people (the beautiful and smiling couple - or are they not a couple? The lyrics need another review...) and not to forget the coloration of it all. It is like the azure blue and crispy white make you sense the summer and the smell of suntan lotion, and it is all-wonderful. Perhaps even too good to be true, hasn't it been for the fact that we know how Ibiza looks like in the summer time. Director and producer Joon Brandt is the master of making every image look delicate and sensual. But who is this guy with our Norwegian dream girl, the soon to become Mrs Tone? Tone tells us in her official blog that he is Sweden’s biggest pop act, and the website Moopy Music can further inform us that the song IMAGINE is an Eric-esque number and that it is really rather brilliant. So now you know. Hocus Focus are as always very happy to work with Joon and this time the team from HF was editor Henrik Berge and colour grader Haavard Albertsen. Look, Dance and Enjoy!

COMING UP: A FASCINATING AND FAST-FORWARD FILM TO GET YOUR ATTENTION. WHAT EXACTLY IS THE DELTA CENTRE? IT IS THE NATIONAL RESOURCE CENTRE FOR PARTICIPATION AND ACCESSIBILITY, WHICH MEANS THE FOLLOWING: ITS MAIN GOAL IS TO CONTRIBUTE TO ENABLING CHILDREN, ADULTS AND OTHERS WITH DISABILITIES TO PARTICIPATE IN THE NORWEGIAN SOCIETY ON EQUAL TERMS WITH THE REST OF US.



The film is shot on 5D and the locations are key places in Oslo like inside and outside of the Central Station. By using fast-motion, the crowds of people are anonymous. However by occasionally slowing down, we notice those with specific needs and how they are able to manoeuvre through markings, elevators, door openers, guide dogs and so on. I really do like the girl in the red dress, spinning around just inside the main entrance of the Opera to Tone Damli’s Grand Prix hit ”Butterfly”: ”I think I need some air to start breathing”. It is a good and necessary cause financially supported by the Ministry of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion. The production company is Smallfilm with director Mikkel Ohrvik and producer Elisabeth Enstad. Post produced by Henriette Carlsen and Hocus Focus. Edited by Thomas Løvig, online and grading by Bengt Ove Sannes. Sound design by Anders Mørk and Lydhodene. For more information or if you simply are curious, take a look at www.deltanettet.no
