IT IS QUITE CHARMING, THE LITAGO COW FROM TINE. WITH KIND EYES, ONE RED AND ONE PURPLE HORN, IT IS EASY TO REMEMBER THAT THIS COW SIGNIFIES MORE THAN THE USUAL SIMPLE, PLAIN AND RATHER BORING MILK.

Litago is a series of beverages based on milk and the latest commercial is focusing on Litago Original Chocolate Milk in particular. This drink of mild taste is suitable for both the young and the old, as a drink for the thirsty and to meals. What is different now? Well, with this commercial Tine is announcing a better and extra looooong chocolate taste and we will not speculate in what that actually means. Some hard facts about TINE, which is Norway's largest producer, distributor and exporter of dairy products: The company is organised as a cooperative owned by more than 15.000 Norwegian dairy farmers. Each member is a shareholder in the cooperative to which they deliver 1.4 billion litres of cow's milk every year. Pretty fascinating stuff. The production company is Qvisten Animation, the director is Khim Tengesdal and the producer is Irene Sødahl Didrichson. Post produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus: Online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen, sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen.

COMING UP: A BRAND NEW AND SHINY OFFER FROM THE CHAIN STORE OPTICIAN BRILLELAND. IN COOPERATION WITH THE ADVERTISING AGENCY KITCHEN, HOCUS FOCUS HAS CREATED A FILM BASED ON STILL IMAGES.

This is yet another challenging and diverting part of Hocus Focus' portfolio, namely to bring graphic elements to life. The message from Brilleland is loud and clear: If you are in need of glasses of any kind, you can simply not afford to let this deal pass you by. And the deal is easy peasy, because you get three pairs of glasses to the cost of one. To rephrase: Buy one pair of glasses and you will also get one pair of sunglasses and a gift voucher you might give to a friend or as a present to your aunt, your cousin or a great grandmother. It sounds great and it is spelled out in graphics of the colours pink, green and blue. In addition you can save until 800 Norwegian kroner on progressive glasses (perhaps most interesting for that great grandmother...). From the producer Caroline Werring Otnes and the post production team from Hocus Focus with post producer Jon Anders Klausen, online by Mathias Theissen and sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. Remember that here comes the sun, so run for your money. Or take a closer look at www.brilleland.no

THE NEWS FROM GRILSTAD IS A SUPER SALAMI. THE COMMERCIAL FILM PROMOTING THE PRODUCT IS SUPER TOO.

Like a comic strip in earthly colours and with thick lines of a pencil, it tells the story of a professor in search for the perfect sausage. The film starts up with the biographical story of this professor, who revisits the past to find the secret of the Salami. So he does, and with high technological tools and much drama, he manages to develop the new super salami. The storyline, and the way we follow our cartoon character and superhero through animated cartoon squares, are all excellent in form and narrative. To improve your knowledge on Grilstad, we can tell you some basic facts. Such as that the Grilstad's assortment consists of air-dried ham and sliced salami, and further that Grilstad AB has three sister companies in Norway: Grilstad fabrikker in Trondheim, Stranda Spekemat outside Ålesund, and Alf Bredrup outside Hamar. Last and least, Grilstad Fabrikker AS has been exporting air-dried and sliced products to Sweden for 20 years. So now you know. Perhaps you can enjoy the different and noticeable commercial from the production company Qvisten Animation and director Stig Bergqvist even more. Produced by Irene Sødahl Didrichson and post produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus. Online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen.

COMING UP WITH COMPLIMENTS GUARANTEED, A NEW COMMERCIAL FILM FROM MATCH. DIRECTOR JOON BRANDT HAS PUT HIS SIGNIFICANT MARK OF QUALITY AND SEDUCTIVENESS ON THE PRODUCTION.

Like no other commercial promoting fashion, we are brought into what seems to be inside a pyramid in the land of Egypt, with old and pre-historic hieroglyphics from vanished times. Sand and parts of bricks are falling down beside what appears to be a beautiful woman with amazing eagle wings. As she raises and starts walking, she is transformed into a very chick modern woman in a light leather jacket, with tight jeans and with those high heels on. The campaign is as incredible as the visuals, as you are promised to get your money back if you buy fashion clothing at Match and nobody gives you a compliment. Beat that! To remind you, the deal is only for a selection of clothing, and not all the pieces in the Match stores. The production company is Go happy! and the film is produced by Miriam Pedersen Eeg. Post-produced by Pia Nyhus and the following team from Hocus Focus: Editor Henrik Berge, online and colour graded by Haavard Albertsen and sound design by Johannes Ringen.

COMING UP: A COMMERCIAL BY THE PEOPLE TO THE PEOPLE. PIZZA GRANDIOSA IS AMONG THE FAVOURITE FOODS IN NORWAY.

It is therefore an excellent idea to invite more than 250 extras to part-take in a promotional film for the new innovation of a product - Grandiosa Kebab. What an unbeatable combination! Director Steinjo Grieg-Halvorsen and Tangrystan Productions must have had their hands full, making sure that this bunch of people was filmed on green screen on various locations in our long-stretched country. The result is fascinating, colourful and quirky, with a live scarecrow, rhythmic head movements, a blue car, hitchhikers and mountaintops. Air balloons and rolling pizzas. Vikings, belly dancers and cowboys. Grandiosa’s history of engaging commercials to be remembered is thus well kept by producer Kristian Hajdu, line producer Anja Kristiansen and photographer Nico Poulsson. Much fun for post producer Ole-Arild Svendsen and his team from Hocus Focus as well. The film was edited Ove Kenneth Nilsen, and it is not hard to see that this Grandiosa-fun kept the guys working online and with VFX busy for a while. That is Haavard Albertsen (who also did the colour grading), Bengt Ove Sannes and Mathias Theissen. Sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen.
