COMING UP: TWO BRAND NEW FILMS FROM TANGRYSTAN FOR FJORDLAND IN A CAMPAIGN THAT CANNOT BE CALLED MODEST IN ANY SENSE OF THE WORD. THE BUTTER BREMYKT IS THE PRODUCT IN FOCUS.

We learn that by simply using the 100% natural Bremykt for cooking and baking, you become a runner up for President in the United States of America. Or you might win awards and get so popular that no less than a statue is sculptured of you for the ever after. It might be hard to draw the lines here, if you not yet have had the pleasure of watching the films on your television screens. However, director Adam Bonke, producer Kristian Hajdu and the rest of the team from Tangrystan make it perfectly logical and as natural as the butter itself. These over-the-top and very funny commercials are post-produced by Lene Albertsen, Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus: Edited by Ove Kenneth Nilsen, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. Sound design by Erik Ljunggren.

HEART OF LIGHTNESS IS THE FIRST FEATURE FILM FROM JAN VARDØEN. THE FILM IS AN ADAPTATION OF HENRIK IBSENS PLAY «LADY FROM THE SEA», AND IS SHOT IN LOFOTEN, AMONGST HIGH MOUNTAINS UNDER THE MIDNIGHT SUN. THE NATURE IS REALLY BREATHTAKING!

Postproduction on the feature film by Hocus Focus: Editing by Ove Kenneth Nilsen. Grading by Haavard Albertsen. Online by Shanon Moratti and Mathias Theissen. Postproducer is Ole-Arild Svendsen. The film has it’s world premiere at Colosseum Kino in Oslo on 28th of may, with the rest of Norway following 30th May.

FIVE NEW CHANNEL IDENTITY PROVIDERS FROM THE NORWEGIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION ARE RELEASED THIS SPRING. THERE IS ALWAYS A TOUCH OF MAGIC CONNECTED TO THE IDENTS FROM NRK.

It is like the institution is building its brand of quality, innovation and knowledge by creating these eight seconds of everyday pleasure, realism, fantasy and colourful beauty. As when hundreds of young Norwegians are jumping up and down in front of a stage in the rain at Rådhusplassen in Oslo and the giant blue ball that exemplifies the dot in the NRK logo is bouncing between them. That is what we would call poetic realism. So is the blue ball bouncing down the stairs close between summerly dressed legs and feet, and the spectacular view from an air balloon. However, the one ident from the city with a small crowd looking up into the sky, is pure magic. The idents are as up-close and personal as they are commonly recognisable, so perfectly balanced and put together – the background, the colours, the sound design. Yes, the NRK idents continue to be small pieces of art that brighten up our television days. Directed by Jan Otto Wiig and shot by Simon Hawken. The 3D animation is created by Tor Øra. Post-production by Hocus Focus with editing by Thomas Løvig, colour grading by Haavard Albertsen and VFX by Bengt Ove Sannes and Haavard Albertsen. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen.

JAMES BOND IS BACK IN BUSINESS. THIS TIME THE MAN IS ON A MISSION TO GET HOLD OF PRODUCTS AND THINGIES TO HIS MAGNIFICENT CAR FROM GS BILDELER – NORWAY’S LARGEST INDEPENDENT PROVIDER OF BITS AND PIECES TO BMW.

James Bond is back in business. This time the man is on a mission to get hold of products and thingies to his magnificent car from GS Bildeler – Norway’s largest independent provider of bits and pieces to BMW. The location appears as grand as it should be, with roaring helicopters, high mountaintops and test dolls on fire. Men and women in white coats add an aura of intelligence and innovation to the setting. Even Q is in place, accompanied by Hocus Focus’ very own Shanon Moratti in the background. Besides being an extra, Shanon made a Behind the Scenes-film from the shooting – a highly recommended production, great fun and for your eyes only at this web site. The commercial is a Small film production with a high level of ambition from director Michael Pfleghar and producer Elisabeth Enstad. Post-produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus with excellent sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. Offline by Thomas Løvig. Online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen.
