SOON ON YOUR TELEVISION SCREENS: A NOSTALGIC DRAMATIZATION OF THE FASCINATING HISTORY OF MILLS KAVIAR (=CAVIAR).

Director Jens Lien and the production company Einar Film has made yet another super charming commercial film, inspired by the events of real life procedures. Mills caviar was already launched in 1952 and is a spread eaten and enjoyed on slices of bread by generations of Norwegians. Perhaps the thrill of childhood memories is sneaking in on you too, when thinking about the taste of the orange-like spread? We are given a lecture in the making of the caviar from the roe of cod. Smoked in the oven on the shore, and with a taste so good that powerful means like locking in your own dad to get a mouthful is totally necessary. And oh so healthy! There is no doubt that the company is Norwegian, with the mountains, the ocean and the fishing shed, framing the girl with red hair, plaits and freckles. Produced by Jarle Tangen. Post produced by Pia Nyhus, Hocus Focus and the team Vidar Flataukan (freelance editor), Haavard Albertsen (colour grading and online) and Johannes Ringen (sound design). Do not forget to introduce or re-introduce the excellent taste of caviar to your loved one.

IT IS URBAN AND IT IS YOUNG. IT IS TIME FOR KAOZ - THE NEW GENERATION OF TIMEKEEPERS. WE ARE REFERRING TO THE BRAND KAOZ, THE WATCHES THEY ARE PRODUCING AND A NEW COMMERCIAL CAMPAIGN FROM BRANDTGRUPPEN AS.

The city is the main character of this film, with its grey charm and its graffiti on high-rise block walls. The youngsters are the coolest of the cool skaters, basketball players, street dancers and bikers. The fingernails on the girls' hands are long and coloured, the black leather is thick and the sneakers are all around. With rapid editing and fast, athletic movements, the commercial appear as a contemporary symphony of a global city that could be located anywhere. It is rough, tough and real, and the music gives it a relaxed and balanced mood. Yes, a commercial seldom works better than this: The images, the music and the editing - all for one. We love it and I want that watch on my wrist! From the always excellent director and producer Joon Brandt, together with Hocus Focus and editor Ove Kenneth Nilsen. Colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. Post produced by Pia Nyhus.

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!
