Hi, my name is Anders Øvergaard. I’m a 29 year old film director from Norway. I work mainly as a film- and video director, but I also do cinematography, and editing. I’m the founder of AXP (Andyax Productions) which is a indie filmmaker company that does all kind of video productions for 2D viewing. With a lot of expertise within all aspects of a film production and with my own video equipment to capture high quality 4k video and sound, I’m ready for new creative films and video projects!
When I started making films at the age of 12, I found out quickly that this was the best way to express my ideas and thoughts in an imaginative and creative way.
I had already done several films at the age of 16, and decided to found my own company AXP (Andyax Productions). But this wasn’t my first time running a company. In 2006 I founded Walkam. Since I had found out how to build my own handheld steadycam, I produced and made the steadycams by order. I produced and sold over 70 steadycams to costumers from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Great Britan. It was a success, but I had to stop the production when attending film school two years later.
At the age of 20, I started at Nordland College of Art and Film in Lofoten, Norway, to study different aspects of a film production. Here I made two shorts as a director, and I was the cinematographer in seven short films made by the students. My first graduation film was a comedy short called Alt for Norge (All for Norway) and the second short is the sci-fi film; Kontakt (Contact). Both shorts attended film festivals and Kontant won the prize “Best student sci-fi short” at the “Horror and sci-fi festival” in Arizona, USA in 2010.
I was quite surprised and honored when I was asked to direct the feature film Til siste hinder (Coming home) as I had just graduated from Nordland College of Art and Film at the age of 21. Even though the production had a really tight budget, the film ended up becoming a success. It was screened at cinemas all over Norway, sold to several countries and it won the Amanda Prize “Best children’s movie” at “Amandaprisutdelingen” 2012 in addition to two other awards. “Amandaprisutdelingen” is the most prestigious film awards in Norway.
I’m absolutely sure when I say that being involved in a lot of different aspects of film productions makes you a better film director. And this is something I’ve been focusing on my whole film career; use time to do sound design, compose music, act, VFX and so one in addition of making different kind of films.
Throughout my years as film maker, I’ve made both documentaries, commercials, sci-fi-, comedy- and drama shorts, a virtual rowboat simulator, a film school channel on Youtube, music videos and art videos amongst others. Feel free to check out the different projects in my portfolio, and don’t hesitage to contact me.
Ps. I’ve been asked several times, why the name Andyax? I was often called Andy as young. When playing pc-games I needed a nickname, and the letter X was really popular to make nicknames cooler, like XxSniperguyxX. Therefore my nickname became AndyaX. I thought the name was cool, and used it for my film productions as well “Andyax Productions”. And from then I’ve kept it, even thought the name is a bit tacky and embarrassing.
