EXCLUSIVE: TWO MEN WITH PRONOUNCED GLASSES ARE KNITTING AND KNITTING. THE DESIGNER COUPLE ARNE & CARLOS ARE INCREDIBLY FASCINATING IN BLOOMING SURROUNDINGS. THEY ARE NOW PROMOTING THE BRAND HØYANG POLARIS AND THE CHAIN STORE JERNIA.

The film is actually shot in the home of the duo in the outskirts of Valdres. Tonsåsen is where they live out their creative life, in an old and abandoned train station building. The film is nice, quirky and contradictory in terms, just as the whole concept of Arne & Carlos: It is all so Norwegian with the rural district, pots and pans and the knitted Norwegian sweaters and kettle holders. At the same time it is far too eccentric, challenging and contemporary to be anything near typical Norwegian - and we love it! Great idea from director Michael Pfleghar and the production company Small Film. Produced by Elisabeth Enstad and post produced by Jon Anders Klausen and no other than Hocus Focus: Edited by Rolf Thomas Løvig, online and colour grading by Bengt Ove Sannes, and sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. Be inspired by the joy of knitting come the time of fall and darkness. And remember, boys do knit...

THERE ARE VERY MANY THINGS IN LIFE THAT ARE EMBARRASSING. ONE OF THEM IS STANDING IN A JAM-PACKED ELEVATOR WITH A LOUD AND MOANING STOMACH.

This rather unpleasant situation kick-starts the new commercial campaign from Dannon in cooperation with the production company Tangrystan. Activia with strawberries is the product in focus. We are no longer talking about the Activia we promoted some time ago, in which the consumption of it was caused by a serious problem of bad digestion. We are rather talking about a sense of small time or big time hunger between the main meals. The craving for something to eat, which is supposed to be both healthy and good, and hence excludes chocolate, cake and biscuits. Ever experienced that? Well then, do not deny yourself a bit of luxury yoghurt with a taste of summer during daytime (night time too, for that matter). Enjoy this commercial from Tangrystan, a company obviously specialising in humour and production value. The film is directed by Adam Bonke and produced by Kristian Hajdu. Post-produced by Hocus Focus and Ole-Arild Svendsen: Editing by Henrik Berge, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen and sound design by Johannes Ringen. Tempted?

FROM MOTION BLUR AND DIRECTOR STEN HELLEVIG: A PARTICULAR AND PECULIAR COMMERCIAL FILM PROMOTING KAVLI BACONOST (=CHEESE). A GREY, BORING, MIDDLE AGED - OR PERHAPS THEY CAN BE DEFINED AS AN OLD - COUPLE IS SITTING IN SILENCE EATING THEIR DINNER.

There is seemingly an ocean of space between them. Brown walls and a pearl necklace is the key here. Suddenly they freeze. The taste of what they are slowly chewing makes them stop. And I love this part, when the music burst into happy-go-lucky and TATA - a large pig with a pink suit is sitting at the end of the table, waving his arms and showing off a tube of cheese. The film surely brightens up the day and one can only hope that Kavli's cheese is doing the same thing. Produced by Espen Horn. Post produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus with colour grading by Haavard Albertsen, online by Bengt Ove Sannes and sound design by Johannes Ringen.

COMING UP: A NEW CAMPAIGN OF 2012 FROM THE NORWEGIAN DIRECTORATE FOR EDUCATION AND TRAINING (=UTDANNINGSDIREKTORATET), RELEASED THE 3RD OF SEPTEMBER. IT IS ALL ABOUT BEING YOUNG AND NEEDING A FRIEND OR TWO.

There are few things in life as touching as happy children and as vulnerable as children’s sad eyes. The beatifully coloured film almost radiate warmth and compassion, as we experience the contrast between the two – the happy and many, and the sad and lonely. Accompanied by the fragile voice of the MGP Jr. winner of last year Sval Rosenløw Eeg and her insightful lyrics of TRENGER DEG (= Need you), the film communicates its very important message in a brilliant way: Children learn friendship from adults. It is parents and adults reponsibility to initiate friendship and build bridges between their children. The film is part of this years preventive anti-bullying campaign and the goal is to create local engagement in each and every municipality in our country. It is of course no coincidence that the campaign is released at the beginning of a new school year, a time of the year we know many, many children dread. So, this is an important film which serves its cause right, from the production company Small Film and director Mikkel Ohrvik. Produced by Elisabeth Enstad, post produced by Jon Anders Klausen and Hocus Focus: Editing by Thomas Løvig, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. Sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen.

DID YOU EVER ASK YOURSELF THE QUESTION WHETHER IT IS POSSIBLE TO FIND A CONNECTION BETWEEN OLAV DEN HELLIGE (THE KING OF NORWAY FROM 1015 TO 1028) AND THE BUTTER BREMYKT?

Well, take a look at the fabulous new commercial campaign from the production company Fantefilm, and you will see that there is a possible link there. Oh yes, all the way back to the battle of Stiklestad and the iron helmets. Even more fascinating is it that the great Napoleon is involved too. Actually he ate some cake with his impressive uniform in tact in a living room in Norway. That is why we have a cake called Napoleon's cake. The adaptability is immense of course, but even so - we love the free fantasy in motion. And just to make sure you also know why pancakes are called "pannekake" in Norwegian... The time before Bremykt existed, the pancakes always got stuck in the pan. So stuck that in any attempt to turn the cake around, the pan smashed into the forehead (panne) of the poor cook. Great fun from director Roar Uthaug and producer Hugo Hagemann Føsker. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus: Edited by Thomas Løvig, colour graded by Haavard Albertsen, vfx, mattepainting and online by Haavard Albertsen and Bengt Ove Sannes. Sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. What was life really like before Bremykt? You will find the answers to this important question here, in these extraordinary films.
