«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.»
