I’m a feature film director!

Posted on September 11, 2011

The last weeks has been very stressful but also fun. My dream since I was a young boy has become true! I’m actually a real feature film director now! :)

I was asked to direct the feature film “Til siste hinder” with the English title “Coming home” in 2009. It’s a horse movie with a lot of girls and horses, and not the kind of film I would predict that I would direct, but that didn’t matter at all. I was 21 years old at the time I was asked, and very privileged to be asked to direct it!

24th of August this year, “Til siste hinder” had a premiere in Norway, and it’s still being screened all over Norway! :)

I explain what I have been through the last weeks in this video. Hope you enjoy!

    Funny thing, you are 21 years old and I’m 27 (this friday 28) and still you inspire me and make me more enthusiastic to make movies..

    Next year I’m planning to see Norway with my 2 year old son and girlfriend, do some sightseeing and enjoying the vacation.

    Maybe we can hang out? Let me know!

    Hello !
    My name is Line and i’m French girl, i’m webdesigner in a web agency and i’ll have to direct and edit videos (artistic,commercials and interviews for my company)(i made some short films when i was in Fine Art School, one of them is a music video and is now on the DVD Punk Rock Holocaust). I was looking for informations about filming with a DSLR and i found your video “location scout” made with the Canon 550D. The result is truly amazing ! Then i discovered your films and now i’m just under the spell of your work ! I read all your advice and i think i’m going to buy the 550D with the standard kit to begin (i don’t want to spend too much money but if i need sound, i don’t know what kind of material i would need and if the 550D is enough to handle it).
    Your work is very inspiring and just make me want to direct again !
    Thank you very much and congratulations for your movie “Til Siste Hinder” ! I hope i could see it one day, even if i have to come to Norway! ;)

    Hi Anders, congratulations! It must be such a great feeling to finally see a self directed movie in a real cinema.
    I am actually in the first steps of making a short film as a bachelor thesis and I’m looking forward to shoot it in december. Its so much fun.

    Beside, for the next year I am searching for some practical experience outside Germany, so if you are working on a project and maybe need a set runner? Call me :-)

    Best regards,
