THE GLOBAL AND NORWEGIAN OIL COMPANY STATOIL IS DOING SOMETHING IMPORTANT AND VERY WISE.  IN THEIR LATEST CAMPAIGN OF FIVE FILMS AND MANY TEASERS, YOUNG AND BRIGHT ONES ARE INVITED TO REFLECT ABOUT THE FUTURE.

In turbulent times of the so-called Green Shift – with the value of oil hitting rock bottom and hundreds of people loosing their jobs within the industry – Statoil needs to reinvent and innovate. It is most interesting and highly relevant to listen to thoughts, arguments and opinions from the up and coming generation on how to use knowledge in the future - to meet the need of change to a green energy and economy. The "When good advice are young" campaign will be distributed on Facebook (iNord) and YouTube, amongst other channels, in addition to follow-up dialogue meetings together with Aftenposten in the five largest cities in Norway. Enlightening and meaningful films from TRY and The Film Agency, with director Tommy Normann.

IT IS PURE PLEASURE – THE NEW CAMPAIGN FROM FLYTOGET. DISTANCED FROM THE HASTY LIFE OF TRAVELING, OF GETTING SOMEWHERE ELSE, THESE FILMS EXTRACT AND RADIATE INNER PIECE AND CALMNESS.

Sound and music are imperative to this mode, which is the mode of the train taking you to the airport outside of Oslo. The music is no less than a brad new interpretation of Edvard Grieg, and is literally powerful enough to tune down all the everyday noise. No worries and everything are plain and simple. A perfect balance of light, close-ups and pace, communicates a way of life we all want – told by a master of storytelling, director Hans Petter Moland in cooperation with LOS & CO. Produced by Helene Hovda Lunde and One Big Happy Family.

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!

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…

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.
