KJELDSBERG IS A LOCAL COFFEE ROASTING COMPANY IN TRONDHEIM. THE COMPANY HAS MADE COFFEE ALL THE WAY BACK TO 1856, WITH COFFEE BEANS COMING FROM BRAZIL, COLOMBIA, CENTRAL-AMERICA AND AFRICA.

In the latest campaign from Kjeldsberg created by Einar Film & Fortellinger, we meet crane operator Cecilie, lighthouse keeper Rolf and the road sweeper Bengt Johnny in three beautifully shot testimonial films. All three of them have the most fascinating and important kind of work. Although often lonesome and invisible for the rest of us. As Cecilie says – it’s me and the birds. Norway is full of hardworking people doing their work during nighttime and in solitude. Kjeldsberg is doing their best to provide these important people with really, really good coffee.

From director Jens Lien and producer Therese Bøhn. Shot by Anders Flatland, post-produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus: Editing by Ove Kenneth Nilsen, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. Sound design by Erik Ljunggren.

NEW MUSIC VIDEO: THIS WEEK ALEJANDRO FUENTES RELEASED A BRAND NEW MUSIC VIDEO AT TV2. IT IS A LONG TIME SINCE WE HAVE HEARD ANYTHING FROM THE POPULAR NORWEGIAN IDOL ARTIST.

A bit older and perhaps wiser, with new management, Fuentes is now singing in his own dialect from Kristiansand about his childhood neighbourhood. With lots of love and a high nostalgic factor, he has written a tribute to family and friends, accompanied by images of children riding bikes, sleepovers in tents and playing Cowboys and Indians.

Directed by Kristoffer Klunk, the man also responsible for Gabrielle’s latest video. Post-production by Lene Cathrine Albertsen and Hocus Focus with editing by Henrik Berge, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen.
