Two years ago I graduated at NordlandCollege of Art and Film, after being a student there for one year. During this year I had directed two shorts, “Alt for Norge” and “Kontakt”, and I had been Director of Photography (DOP) in seven shorts. These films were directed by other student at the school and they had chose which one they would like as a DOP from class. I was lucky and could work with talented students like Karin Pennanen from Finland. She made the fantastic short “Brudhlaup” which has been screened at several film-festivals internationally.
This was my first film to shoot at NordlandCollege of Art and Film, and my first serious work as DOP, so I was a bit excited and nervous. I thought I had to do a great job to not disappoint the director even thought it was a student film. I used my Canon XH A1 with the SgPro 35mm adapter, to get the nice depth of field and to achieve the “Film-look”. We shot the film during three days in the beautiful landscape of Lofoten, North of Norway. The film was quite artistic, so the scenery was perfect for this film. I hope you enjoy the film:
