In addition to making short films, I like to take part in other aspects of film making. These include working as:

- production assistant,

- script supervisor,

- background actor,

- subtitler

DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY

GENS ORDINAIRES (2019)
In this short film involving a dark goth teenager, we explore the harsh reality of accepting a family member's death.

PRODUCTION ASSISTANT

MONEY BACK, PLEASE


This short film (2013, 12 mins) was shot in a shopping mall in Kristiansand, Southern Norway.

 

On this two-­day shoot, tasks included setting up and clearing the set, transporting items, on foot, brewing coffee, assisting actors, and picking up lunch. 

 

The film has been screened at the 2014 Leuven International Short Film Festival among other international festivals.

JORD OVER VIND (EARTH OVER WATER)


As in Money, Back Please I worked as PA for this medium-length movie (2013, 40 mins) shot in the idyllic Norwegian countryside. I helped by completing similar tasks as in MBP, with a particular emphasis on assistance to the Art department which was led by Julie Lozach Asskildt, who won the best art direction prize at the 2014 La Cabina Medium-Length Film Festival, in Valencia, Spain

GOING FOR GOLD (commercial spot) 


This time a video commercial (2014, 3mins) for Samsung. On this one-day shoot in Kristiansand, I came away having learned that you have a very short amount of time to make a commercial, so not a single second can be wasted. This is very true for this production, since part of the clip is a real-time shot showing the winner's reaction to the prize we brought to his front door. Good organization and perfect timing were the order of the day. 

 

SCRIPT SUPERVISOR

PICNIC @ HERMANN'S (feature-lenght movie)


As I finish my three-year bachelor degree in Film, one of my course friends calls me and offers me a position as Script Supervisor for a self-financed Norwegian feature-length movie. This 138-page script translated to about 130 minutes of film. Quite a challenge, since this was my first time as a script supervisor. The first part of the movie was shot in summer 2014, the second part should be concluded by this spring if the financing permits it. The release should be summer 2015. 

SUBTITLER

 

THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF HUMANITY (2017)

 

For this project, I was involved in the subtitling from English to Italian. 

A documentary that offers another view on the history of humanity by taking the viewer to a journey in space and time. 

 

 

SPEAKING AND BACKGROUND ACTOR

 

THE SPY (small Norwegian-speaking role)

 

With Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Rolf Lassgård, Alexander Scheer, Edvin Endre, Gitte Witt Julsrud, Johan Widerberg, Thomas Arnold, Ingrid Vollan and Anders T. Andersen.

Directed by Jens Jonsson.

One-day shooting at Metropole Hotel Brussels and streets nearby. 

What astonished me on this film set was the professionalism of the crew members. 

 

 

THE HAPPY PRINCE (2017)

 

With Rupert Everett, Emily Watson, Colin Firth, Miranda Richardson. Directed by Rupert Everett.

One-day shooting at Metropole Hotel Brussels and streets nearby. 

What astonished me on this film set was the professionalism of the crew members. 

 

 

LOUIS-FERDINAND CÉLINE (2016)

 

With Denis Lavant, directed by Emmanuel Bourdieu. 

JE SUIS UN SOLDAT (2015)

COLONIA DIGNIDAD (2015) 

 

I enjoy being either side of the camera: background acting gigs are very welcome.

 

This feature-length movie was partly shot in Luxembourg, so not so far from Brussels. I'm the guy between Daniel Brühl and director Gallenberger, who's pointing at Emma Watson.

 

POPULAIRE (2012) 

 

In this French feature-length film, I worked as extra, as a New Yorker in the late 1950s, part of the World's Typewriting Championships audience.
