Imagine a beach

It was 10 busy days, so I didn’t get to update you much, but Over Fjellet was finished in time! The sound edit took me a couple of days, then came grading and finally export and DVD/Blu-Ray-authoring. It was a couple of long nights in the sound and grading suites, but the result came out good. The film has gotten positive feedback from those who have seen it.¬†Eventually the film will be published on Vimeo or YouTube and I’ll let you know when it happens!

You may wonder what the picture on top has to do with anything. Well, as a matter of fact not two days after I finished the film, I jumped on a plane and spent a week on an island in the Mediterranean for some much needed R&R.

It’s a wrap!

We finally wrapped principal photography for Over Fjellet today! After three intense and busy days of shooting on locations in the middle of nowhere. It was an interesting shoot in several ways. For one we were a small crew on demanding locations and on a tight schedule. Second, I tried out some new equipment like Atomos Ninja 2, Wondlan camera rigs and Sirui tripod. I’ll try to do some posts about my experiences with the different equipment in the upcoming days!

Clean slate

Clean SlateFor now, that is. Tomorrow we start shooting Over Fjellet. The whole day I’ve been franticly finishing everything and getting ready. Like picking up a new slate board I ordered from Amazon, getting together costumes, shopping for snacks for cast and crew and arranging transport. All the way down to printing scripts, call sheets, shot lists and log sheets and arranging them neatly in a folder. If you ever wondered what assistants do, try shooting a film without any. Don’t ever underestimate the job of your assistants!
