WE REMEMBER IT VIVIDLY. THE PEASANTS IN TOWN (OR BØNDER I BYEN), A COMMERCIAL FILM FROM FELLESKJØPET AND FANTEFILM, PARADING OUR TV-SCREENS EARLIER THIS YEAR. WITH AN ARMY OF FARMERS AND GRANDIOSE MUSIC, THE COMMERCIAL WAS A GREAT SUCCESS.


It gave those working with nature and land new pride and an upgraded image. Now their back. In numerous versions of the original film, they are promoting everything from dog food to huge, rough, tough and green John Deere agricultural tractors, which are shown in the video above. The film still works exceptionally well, even in small and separated bits and parts. So does the general and encouraging message of all the films taken from the “mother commercial”: Go and buy your equipment of those who have the best knowledge. It seems like a very sensible and rational idea (especially when you look at those tall strong men in flannel shirts). What do they have knowledge about? Everything, including gardening tools, lawn mower, soil, earmuffs and chain saws. Pretty cool stuff from the maker of the Cold Prey trilogy, the production company Fantefilm and director Roar Uthaug. Producers are Hugo Fausker and Elle-Beth Lønnestad. Post produced by Pia Røe Nyhus and Hocus Focus: Rolf Thomas Løvig (editor), Haavard Albertsen (online and colour grading) and Preben Grieg-Halvorsen (sound design). Enjoy the spring with all its work.

THE TV-CHANNEL TVNORGE AIMS AT BEING BEST IN THE COUNTRY ON HUMOUR PROGRAMING. ONE OF THE SERIES THAT IS HELPING THE CHANNEL TO ACHIEVE THIS GOAL IN THE SPRING OF 2012 IS THE SECOND SEASON OF THOMAS GIERTSEN AND HELT PERFEKT (=COMPLETELY PERFECT).


Yes, it is as embarrassing, agonising and funny as the first season. Everything in the world of Thomas Giertsen has to be perfect. If it is not, he turns into this nagging, whining and incredible childish man, more infantile than a two-year old. We still cannot help wondering whether Mr Giertsen is being or playing himself - how close is the series to real life? This is a fascinating and important factor, which among others keep the tension in the series. We start up where we left Thomas in the first season, in an everyday situation, talking with his real life friend and brother-in-law Jon Øigarden. Jon is "babysitting" with total control via his Mac. That is how the two paranoid buddies come up with a bizarre system of surveillance of some innocent Bulgarians from a choir. And it just keeps coming more... Arild Frølich directs the series, in addition to a team of directors of the different episodes. Produced by Maren Onsaker and the production company Feelgood (very ironic, is it not?). Post produced by Pia Røe Nyhus and Hocus Focus: Colour grading by Shannon Morati and online by Bengt Ove Sannes. Watch this space and be embarrassed!

WHAT A SHOW, WHAT A DRAMA AND WHAT A PRODUCTION! COMING UP IS THE LATEST FILM FROM GRØNT PUNKT NORGE (=GREEN DOT NORWAY) IN COOPERATION WITH THE PRODUCTION COMPANY FREDRIK FICTION. IT IS NO LESS THAN A TOP-NOTCH MUSIC VIDEO WITH OUR OWN GRAND PRIX STAR DIDRIK SOLLI-TANGEN.

He is singing as great, pompous and grandiose as only he can, with a little bit of irony, humour and nonsense. Switching between Norwegian and English, he is sweeping over a broad and important area, both visually and lyrically, bringing the message to the people of Norway: We can recycle everything, so why don’t we? As you might already have guessed, Green Dot Norway is a non-profit company responsible for financing the recycling of used packaging on behalf of the industrial sector AND for developing, organising and operating recycling schemes for used packaging including plastic, EPS, carton packaging and beverage cartons. There is certainly no doubt about the engagement among well-known faces, as Mr Solli-Tangen has a whole choir of them. There is perhaps not much more these people have in common than environmental issues, but it is great fun to see Linni Meister, Anne Marie Ottersen, Christian Ingebrigtsen and a bunch of others use their voice for a good cause. Directed by Ole Martin Hafsmo, produced by Fredrik Fiction by Fredrik Pryzer and Kaja Marie Amundsen. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus: Bengt Ove Sannes (colour grading and online), Ida Kolstø (freelance editing), Preben Grieg-Halvorsen and Johannes Ringen (sound design).
