GRANDIOSA, BY NOW WELL KNOWN FOR THEIR COMMERCIALS WITH CATCHY SONGS AND LOADS OF DANCING PEOPLE, ARE ONCE AGAIN LAUNCHING A NEW PIZZA; HELMAX! THIS TIME WITH CHEESE BOTH AT THE TOP AND THE BOTTOM. YUMMY? YOU BE THE JUDGE YOURSELF.

Produced by Miriam Pedersen Eeg and Go Happy! Directed by Lars Åndheim and Christoffer Lossius. Post-produced by Pia Røe Nyhus and Hocus Focus: Edited by Ove Kenneth Nilsen, colour grading and online by Haavard Albertsen. And last but not least Preben Grieg-Halvorsen on sound design. Can you spot the dancing grandma?

EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED. IT MIGHT SEEM LIKE A PHILOSOPHICAL STATEMENT. HOWEVER IT IS THE SLOGAN AND PUNSHLINE IN THE LATEST COMMERCIAL FILM FROM EIDSIVA.

We are talking about electric power and a very cool and professional way of telling us about all the obstacles the electric flow must overcome to find its way to Mikkel's toaster. It includes fallen trees, many miles and many people - giving orders and taking orders. All is good as long as we keep Mikkel and his buddy happy. Eidsiva is owned by Hedmark and Oppland county municipalities and twenty-six counties in both municipalities. The company develops inland energy resources, offers products and services to its inhabitants, as well as contributing to general growth and development in the region. Good for us and good for them, which is brilliantly communicated by Fantefilm and director Magnus Martens. Produced by Audun Lyngholm Wittenberg, post-produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus: Edited by Ove Kenneth Nilsen, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. The sound design in the film is created from scratch in post-production by Erik Ljunggren. Come - take the fast, if not furious, trip together with Fantefilm and Eidsiva and enjoy the ride!

COMING UP: A NEW AND GRAND FILM FROM LAST YEAR'S WINNER OF GULLFISKEN. WE ALL REMEMBER THE MASSIVE IMPACT THE COMMERCIAL BØNDER I BY'N (=FARMERS IN TOWN) HAD IN 2012.

The production company Fantefilm is not exactly known for thinking small – rather the opposite. This time around the seemingly hundreds of farmers are exchanged with hundreds of dogs. Or more precisely 75 of them. And yes, they all had to audition, and was picked out of 150 hopeful ones. We are experiencing something as exciting and rare as a dog uproar on our screens. Dogs in all forms and sizes are standing up and breaking away from their masters' designer food and a lifestyle of luxurious comfort. Dogs do not want olives and pãtès. What they want is real dog food from Felleskjøpet. The film is hysterically funny in all its exclusiveness, a kind of reminder of the times we live in and certainly encouraging the notion of Back-To-Basic. Honour and glory to Fantefilm, director Roar Uthaug and producer Hugo Hagemann Føsker. Post production by producer Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus: Edited by Ove Kenneth Nilsen, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. Sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. Just imagine the audition with 150 dogs and their proud owners at Ekebergsletta in Oslo, or an ordinary day on the set with 50 dogs – say no more.

THE WELL-KNOWN TV-CHEF LISE FINCKENHAGEN HAS SPENT THE SUMMER VISITING FARMERS ALL OVER NORWAY, TO TASTE AND TALK ABOUT THE SEASONAL TEMPTATIONS.

These glimpses of colourful vegetables, fruits and berries create the latest commercial campaign from Bama and the Norwegian/Los Angeles based production company The King of Popcorn. Director Sten Hellevig takes us to the most beautiful places in Norway and provides us with plenty of knowledge and arguments for choosing Norwegian products. Roy Hasle’s carrots in Østfold, Thorleif Muller’s strawberries from Nøtterøy and Jan Ove Nes in Hardanger, where you can find the best plums, of course: All the products reeks of quality. And the series of films look as crispy and fresh as the fruits and vegetables they represents. Norwegian nature and health at its best. Produced by Terez Hollo Klausen and Håvard Hana, post produced by Jon Anders Klausen and Hocus Focus. A lot of films demand a lot of people: Edited by Ove Kenneth Nilsen, Henrik Berge and freelancer Vesa Happonen. Excellent colour grading that set you in a summer mood, by Haavard Albertsen. Online by Bengt Ove Sannes and sound design by Christian Schaaning, with contributions from Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. Enjoy and stay green and healthy.

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.
