Two shows within 3 months..

Ive just finished a very busy period of shooting two comedy-dramas back to back. One political comedy, and one viking comedy. They could not have been more different in look and feel, both great challenges on a limited budget and time. "Folkevalgt" was shot on Arri Amira using Super Speed lenses, and "Vikingane" was shot on sometimes 4 (!) Red Dragon, using Ultra Primes. Lots of talented crew joining me to make all of this possible, will post in greater detail when the time comes.

2013 done

I just realized my last blogpost was titled "2012 done", so I guess its time for 2013. I have actually been doing some reviews on my reviewpage, but not really talking about what I have been doing. 2012 have for the most part been about one show. "Det Tredje Øyet" (The Third Eye) is a episodic crime-drama about a cop who has lost his daughter 5 years ago, and continues his search in his daily work as an investigator. I did 6 episodes (!), and my fellow DoP and friend Pål Bugge Haagenrud did 4. I acted as his B-operator on his episodes as well, giving…
