My short film premieres at a public cinema today!
Come full circle is my first short film. I wrote, and produced this 6 minute 35mm film.
It premiered at the Grimstad short film festival June this year.
It's surrealistic dream-like sequence that pulls you out of your everyday configuration and into a visually mesmerizing state. 
( I hope...)  Don't take my word for it, find out for yourself!
It's directed and shot by Finn Erik and Nils who also co wrote.

Come Full Circle will be shown before all screenings of Sin Nombre at Bergen Kino. Sin Nombre premieres at Bergen Kino friday, 6th of November at 6.30pm. Check out Bergen kino's website for further screenings.

Offspring one: The Singer Getaway!

In my last posting I presented the Dale Sko Hack and promised to further present you with the first offspring.

After experiencing shoe hacking at Dale, it felt natural to apply my newly acquired skills in the creation of my own shoes. A shoe that keeps me well dressed in a casual sort of way.
I also thought of taking it further to include bags.
I've always wanted a weekend carrier that transcended the simple task of transporting my travelling items. A bag that offers more in terms of design, function and quality.

So, today, I present you with the first offspring:
The SINGER GETAWAY, a weekend carry all.
Inspired by the curvy, lush and the ever so reliable vintage sewing machine.

The whole idea is....
A weekend away, promises of adventure, decadence, delight and anything that tickles your fancy.
Depart in style with your favourite tipple well tucked away.

Roomy enough for your crispy shirts and your well chosen outfits.

It comes with detachable handle straps, convertible hardtop with a champagne carrier and fits perfectly in the overhead compartments!

Designed in Skostredet, handcrafted in Portugal and made out of vegetable tanned leather.
They come in 3 colourways; British racing green, Oxblood and Ebony.
Bringing out the rock star in you!

The Dale Sko Hack's offspring one

I'll be presenting my first offspring from The Dale Sko Hack in my next posting. However first things first.

What is The Dale Sko Hack?

The Dale Sko Hack was a three day workshop and design project endeavouring to develop new interfaces between designer and producer in an effort to evolve small scale production methods, save work places and develop skills within small scale shoe production.
Existing manufacturing facilities and techniques are hacked into to create new exciting products.
The Dale Sko Hack, curated by Otto Von Busch, took place at Dale shoe factory three years ago.
Located on the west coast of norway by the beautiful fjords, right next to Transplant.

Otto Von Busch managed to assemble an impressive line up of Norwegian designers to participate at the shoehack. Arne-Carlos, Katulla, T-Michael, Siv Støldal and her then assistant, Siri Johansen. The project was documented by photographer Bent Renè Synnevåg.

The Dale Sko Hack was awarded Special Prize Fashion Fashion Theory: European Fashion Award 2008.

Not another one!

Greetings all.
I know what you are thinking. Or rather, I know what I would be thinking. Too many blogs as there is already, what do we need another one for?
Well, we don't need another one and I won't hold it against you if you don't visit my blog. Honest.

This blog will reflect work and play. Which in my case intertwines.
I intend to drop on this site various findings, bits and bobs, and projects I'm working on or have worked on.
A sort of a mood board.
A summary of items that has triggered that feeling of exuberance in me.
I'm bursting at the seams already. I need to share my excitement!
