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.

THE PRODUCTION COMPANY QVISTEN ANIMATION HAS MADE A FINE COMMERCIAL PROMOTING A TREASURE FROM THE SOUTH OF NORWAY, NAMELY SØRLANDSCHIPS.

Here is the message they are communicating: The unusual good usual chips are a world sensation from the manufacturer Sørlandschips. Usual chips from Sørlandschips are in fact an unusual good usual chips based on a brand new recipe. Confused? Well, so am I, and so are the men and women at the factory in white overcoats. Particularly Ingolf, the one who talks about philosophy and the meaning of life. The newcomer among the chips-family is celebrated with trumpets, fanfares and a red ribbon. The oh so nerdy employees with lovely southern dialect, take on their assignment with great sincerity. It is obviously a big happening and there is no doubt in my mind that the chips are tasteful. It sounds incredible tempting, too. Particularly on a Sunday. Produced by Irene Sødahl Didrichson and post-produced by Pia Nyhus. From Hocus Focus: Ove Kenneth Nilsen (editor), Bengt Ove Sannes (online and colour grading) and Preben Grieg-Halvorsen (sound design). If you want to do some more in-depth research on the logic of the unusual usual potato chips, check out the film or the website at www.sorlandschips.no

COMING UP: AN UNBEATABLE COMBINATION. THE NORWEGIAN POP SENSATION MADCON HAS JOINED FORCES WITH THE MOST POPULAR NORWEGIAN CHOCOLATE.

Stratos milk chocolate from Nidar. We took the long history of Nidar, going all the way back to Trondheim in 1912, a little while ago. We will not go back there again. However, we have to repeat the fact that Nidar is Norway’s answer to (Charlie and) the Chocolate Factory. Anyway, what do Madcon and Stratos have in common except their unique popularity? Bubbles - they are bubbling all the way. Madcon's Tshawe and Yosef have been animated for the occasion of promoting that Stratos has been reshaped from a rectangular and flat to a bubbly form. They are buzzing around with wings to their own Stratos music, and the blue Stratos cow is ecstatic, doing his fabulous moves on the dance floor. A real disco show is taking place on a stage with flashing light on a rooftop. Oh yes, Stratos is a bubble of joy and good taste. Fun, fun and more fun from director Rasmus Øyen and the production company Qvisten Animation. Produced by Irene Sødal Dietrichson, post produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus: Colour grading and online by Bengt Ove Sannes. Sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. Enjoy a Stratos with delicious chocolate bubbles.

IT IS SUMMER, IT IS GREEN AND IT IS HITTING THE ROAD ON A MOTORBIKE. OH JOY.

This is not only for the youngsters, and that is because health comes from within. From the heart, as a matter of fact, and this is seemingly the message of the latest commercial film from Vita. The butter is for everybody. The active and fit 40+ men playing football in the park and the family on the beach snorkelling away in the blue ocean. Then comes the serious part, with the unpleasant question directed to you and me, whether we are aware that there is far too many of us who are stricken by heart diseases. Women as much as men. To prevent that, there is a simple rule: Learn the difference between good fat and bad fat. Ok, it is a bit simplified, but the commercial explains and illustrates it very well. Vita Hjertego is evidently the solution. The production company Fantefilm is responsible for this feel good film that brings forward an immense longing for the summer. Perhaps not so surprising, taking into account that the crew simply was FORCED to travel far, far away to the southern hemisphere and to Cape Town to find the summer. Poor creatures... Directed by the one and only Roar Uthaug, produced by Hugo Hagemann Føsker, post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus: Edited by Thomas Løvig, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen, sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. We love summer... and good health.
