More PistolShrimps

Here are a bunch of our latest YouTube videos:

The Science of Blowjobs and Throbbing Hearts

Here’s the first short film I made at Columbia. I wanted to write a longer post about the production of it, but I just can’t seem to find the time to do so.

But in short:  I’ve always had a tendency to overanalyze everything, so I wanted to find a way to visualize that. And so the idea was born of having a group of scientist stuck in this boy’s head, doing the calculations for his every move.

Anyways, I’m so grateful for all the people who helped out.

From Nordhordland With Love

“From Nordhordland With Love” is a commercial we shot this summer for Nordhordland, a district back in Norway. They had seen the films we made for The University og Bergen Library, and wanted something similar. So basically they gave us a lot of creative freedom, which is always rewarding.

I always wondered how a supervillain goes about picking the location for his headquarter. So I came up with the idea of an evil megalomaniac and his #2 going location scouting in the area. I’m quite happy with the end result, since it’s rather different from the typical ‘postcard’-commercial we normally see for places like this.

The feedback we’ve gotten has been great. The travel website Gadling referred to it as: “..this is one of the most creative promotional videos we’ve ever seen. Well played, Nordhordland.”
