Trailer for Hålogaland Theatre

Just finished a new trailer for the theatre play "Mysterier" on Hålogaland Teater in Tromsø. The play is based on the book by Norwegian writer Knut Hamsun, and opens on September 7th. Oh, the voice is in Norwegian:

The trailer is produced by Ferdinand Films and directed by Ole Giæver. I was hired to do the photography and editing, as well as the visual effects we've done in post. The project is low budget, shot on the theatre's own DVX100 with the main actor from the play.

For this play, the theatre is trying out a new approach to marketing. All the material is yellow, there will be yellow banners up all over town, and the poster is yellow with a picture of the actor hanging in mid-air. For the trailer, we tried to use the same visual style, while adding some mood with the music and the voice that vaguely describes the setting of the play.

Even though the budget is low, it is still a very enjoyable project. The theatre is a very good client, and they are always open to experiment, at least compared to other commercial clients. I'm always happy to work with them.

This is the previous trailer we did for the theatre.
