IT IS ALREADY OUT THERE: THE NEW COMMERCIAL CAMPAIGN FROM KOMPLETT.NO. THE COMPANY IS NORWAY'S LARGEST INTERNET SHOP OF IT PRODUCTS, AMONG OTHER THINGS.

We love the slogan "Trusted by Geeks since 1996". It is both humorous and reflects the historical force of an IT net company operating for more than 10 years. A funny and perhaps ironic comment to our contemporary time and development. We are aware that a geek knows his stuff, and the geeks of Komplett are a wonderful mix of the mad professor and the Norwegian nerd. The pure joy and mad excitement of the geek while testing the Samsung TV that can be turned on and off and volume controlled without touch, are wonderful. So is the green light from the screens, the dots and lines that makes his eyes glow through thick glasses, while looking and configuring PCs on specification from you - the buyer - exactly as you want and need it. With a broad spectre of components to choose from, treated with genuine love and care, in addition to a three-year guarantee, Komplett.no is not kidding. This is the real thing! The production company is Babusjka. The films are produced by Mads Astrup Rønning and directed by Susanne Falkum Løvik. Post produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus: Edited by Henrik Berge, colour graded and online by Haavard Albertsen. Welcome back to the late summer of 2012, and remember that geeks are trustworthy!

IS THIS THE SLOGAN OF THE YEAR? BASICALLY IT GOES LIKE THIS: DO NOT BARBECUE RUBBISH, WHEN YOU CAN BARBECUE GOLD. THE VISUAL KICK-OFF TO THESE WISE WORDS IS VARIOUS IDYLLIC IMAGES OF TWO FRIENDS IN DIFFERENT OUTDOORS SETTINGS. FROM A LEDGE NEARBY THE SEA IN SUMMERTIME, TO CAMPING IN THE DEEPEST OF WOODS.


The procedure is the same. One asks the other what to put on the grill and what follows are rather bizarre situations. The fine not so young man gets one time hold of his ridiculous (because most of them are just that) confirmation picture, and another time an old book from school with grades. Yet another time is a beautiful marzipan cake the centre of the barbecue attention. Then the slogan cracks in, with the support of a voice-over telling us that a range of Coop products are the national champions of great products to put on the grill. A very fascinating way to communicate a point and promote a product from director Steinar Borge and the production company Trøbbel Film. Produced by Mariam Pedersen Eeg and post produced by Jon Anders Klausen. The team from Hocus Focus includes Henrik Berge (editing), Haavard Albertsen (online and colour grading) and Johannes Ringen (sound design). And remember: Don't eat your hat, or anything else made of fabric or paper.

IT IS ALREADY OUT THERE. IMAGINE: THE VERY HOT AND VERY CATCHY MUSIC VIDEO FROM TONE DAMLI FEATURING ERIC SAADE.

Everything in this video looks great and the visuals are fantastic. The location (the house, the boat, the swimming pool and the view), the people (the beautiful and smiling couple - or are they not a couple? The lyrics need another review...) and not to forget the coloration of it all. It is like the azure blue and crispy white make you sense the summer and the smell of suntan lotion, and it is all-wonderful. Perhaps even too good to be true, hasn't it been for the fact that we know how Ibiza looks like in the summer time. Director and producer Joon Brandt is the master of making every image look delicate and sensual. But who is this guy with our Norwegian dream girl, the soon to become Mrs Tone? Tone tells us in her official blog that he is Sweden’s biggest pop act, and the website Moopy Music can further inform us that the song IMAGINE is an Eric-esque number and that it is really rather brilliant. So now you know. Hocus Focus are as always very happy to work with Joon and this time the team from HF was editor Henrik Berge and colour grader Haavard Albertsen. Look, Dance and Enjoy!

YOU ARE EITHER EXTREMELY BUSY OR YOU HAVE ALREADY TAKEN A LONG VACATION IN ANOTHER GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY (I.E. OUTSIDE THE BORDERS OF NORWAY) IF YOU NEVER HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE ROCKA.

The feature film is already a much discussed and debated production, because it initially was declined ordinary public viewings at the cinemas in Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim. Many thought this to be both film politically strange and unfair, as the reviews were good. Anyhow, the film belongs to a genre of our time, the mockumentary, and it tells the story about Big B Thunders. At the age of 44, he quit his job and follows his dream to become a rock star. Fat, forty and finished? Not at all. An hilarious comedy in all its embarrassment from writer and director Robert Næss, with Hans Bastian Borg, Thor Staff Christiansen and Brage Kvasbø. It is worth noticing that all of these Rock'n Roll guys are using their authentic names - in real mockumentary style - and of course they are meeting other authentic rock dudes, like Ronni Le Tekrø and Thomas Seltzer. Hocus Focus had the pleasure of helping with some post production on the film. Mathias Theissen has worked on colour grading and VFX. The DVD/Blu-Ray hit the street on the 27th of June, so go and get it!

COMING UP: A FASCINATING AND FAST-FORWARD FILM TO GET YOUR ATTENTION. WHAT EXACTLY IS THE DELTA CENTRE? IT IS THE NATIONAL RESOURCE CENTRE FOR PARTICIPATION AND ACCESSIBILITY, WHICH MEANS THE FOLLOWING: ITS MAIN GOAL IS TO CONTRIBUTE TO ENABLING CHILDREN, ADULTS AND OTHERS WITH DISABILITIES TO PARTICIPATE IN THE NORWEGIAN SOCIETY ON EQUAL TERMS WITH THE REST OF US.



The film is shot on 5D and the locations are key places in Oslo like inside and outside of the Central Station. By using fast-motion, the crowds of people are anonymous. However by occasionally slowing down, we notice those with specific needs and how they are able to manoeuvre through markings, elevators, door openers, guide dogs and so on. I really do like the girl in the red dress, spinning around just inside the main entrance of the Opera to Tone Damli’s Grand Prix hit ”Butterfly”: ”I think I need some air to start breathing”. It is a good and necessary cause financially supported by the Ministry of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion. The production company is Smallfilm with director Mikkel Ohrvik and producer Elisabeth Enstad. Post produced by Henriette Carlsen and Hocus Focus. Edited by Thomas Løvig, online and grading by Bengt Ove Sannes. Sound design by Anders Mørk and Lydhodene. For more information or if you simply are curious, take a look at www.deltanettet.no
