STANDART HAS PRODUCED THE LATEST CAMPAIGN FROM IKEA, INCLUDING THREE FINE FILMS DIRECTED BY JOHAN PERJUS. THE SIGNS OF FALL ARE SNEAKING UP ON US AND IT IS TIME TO PREPARE FOR SPENDING MORE TIME INDOORS.

For many of us, that means a trip to IKEA. The products recommended are the Vallentuna sofas with flexible sitting arrangements AND a hiding place for your guilty-pleasures such as chips. A classical chair called Norraryd, which make your family happy because everybody is comfortable sitting longer at the dinner table. Additionally, the chairs are robust enough to survive dirty clothes and fingers. Last but not least, the Knotten desk you do not have to sit down to use. More space for the children to play and more using the legs for you. Thank you IKEA!

Produced by Miriam Eeg Pedersen, post-produced by Hocus Focus with Henrik Berge (editor), Haavard Albertsen (colour grading and online) and Preben Grieg-Halvorsen (sound design). Graphic animation by Steamheads.

IN THE LATEST CAMPAIGN FROM STOKKE, THE PRODUCTION COMPANY TANGRYSTAN AND DIRECTOR ANDREA ECKERBOM HAVE PRODUCED A VERY MOVING FILM ABOUT THE EARLY DAYS OF LIFE.

The commercial is saying it all about what kind of company Stokke aims to be and the products they are making – children’s quality necessities like the famous Tripp Trapp chair, the Xplory stroller and the sleepi bed. The slogan - Designed to be Close - makes a lot of sense together with images from ultrasounds and short home-video pieces of film of mothers and fathers with their much-loved babies. The newborn, the sleeping infant, the first laughter and the delight of new experiences – it is all there in less than 30 seconds. Time pass by so quickly…

Post-produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus: Edited by Ove Kenneth Nilsen, online and colour grading by Mathias Theissen. Sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen.

A FEW WEEKS AGO THE LEGENDARY NATIONAL RAPSHOW WAS HIGH-JACKED BY DON MARTINITIO. DON MARTIN’S ALTER EGO – A MUPPET ON A STRING – IS THE MAIN CHARACTER IN HIS LATEST MUSIC VIDEO DIAMANTTYV.

It is a film about how a boy from eastern suburbia Oslo became a master of stealing diamonds. Or more precisely, one particular diamond. Rumours have it that the whole heist theme is a metaphor for how Don stole the heart of his beloved. Co-starring Mr. Martinitio is the one and only Mr. Jan Vardøen, among others. Much time has been spent together with director Kristoffer Klunk, researching how other Muppets are used in rap videos like Blackstreet’s No Diggity and unofficial, more fun ones at YouTube. The result is excellent and even Tommy Tee had problems controlling the engaged and agitated Muppet, who denied the very romantic aspect of it all. This is simply a great story and great rapping.

THE LATEST CAMPAIGN FROM BAMA IS INVITING US TO THE SUMMER GARDEN OF TV CHEF LISE FINCKENHAGEN.

In idyllic settings, she is informing us about potatoes and tomatoes, strawberries, raspberries, carrots and what have you. With great enthusiasm, new outfits and simple recipes, she tells us in 7 short films all we need to know about how to prepare those vegetables and berries. The slogan is - now we know, and what we know is good for us. We think Lise is right, and it looks very good, indeed. Directed by Sten Hellevig and produced by King of Popcorn.

A GREAT AND GRAND SUMMER CAMPAIGN IS COMING UP FROM CHESS. WITH NO LESS THAN 16 FILMS AND VERSIONS, FANTEFILM WITH PRODUCER HALVOR LID AND DIRECTOR ANDREAS KLEIBERG ARE SETTING THE MOOD WITH RELAXED FUN AND EASY CONVERSATION.

The message is clear – what you need is the Chess combo. That is a double amount of data for free to the end of August. On top of the ordinary Chess criteras of course, which for instance means that you reach the people you want to get hold of, wherever they are. And cheap use of your mobile. And excellent client service. And much more. The combo of image, colour and sound at the screen are great as well – with all you could ever dream of for the summer. For instance dancing on rooftops with light bulbs, pretty people and loud music. If you’re not more of a head-spinning in the paint kind of a guy – you get that too.
