We are in the last days of compositing on Growing Pains, and have just submitted a Work In Progress to the Odense Film Festival, where we hope to hold our Danish Premiere – it also an Oscar Qualification festival, so lets hope we win.
But, first we have to get selected, but if you can see the link below, it looks like the selection jury is enjoying it!
All the films have been shot, and have begun the very fast paced editing process. We are showing the films to The Danish Film Institute and The Copenhagen Film Fund on wednesday and final cut is on friday, so they are working till their fingers bleed. Thankfully the directors are all very talented and have been well prepared, so as of now (knock on wood) everything is going smoothly. yay!

I just delivered an application to DFI with a new animated fantasy film called CLOUD FISHER. About a girl learning to overcome her fear of heights while saving the day and her father from evil.
Epic fantasy stuff. I am looking forward to working for the first time with director Troels Hugo Cederholm and writer Simon Weil.
It will be awesome, I promise you that.
My favorite little Robot WILL-BOT will tour danish cinemas this fall with DFI’s BørneBiffen, an initiative to bring the 3-6 year olds into the cinema space. And even more exiting, WILL-BOT will be on the poster.
Director Helene Moltke-leth and I will be pitching on thursday at the EDN Art documentary online pitching session.
Gloomy Haven is not your average art portrait, it is a music historical film that highlights the changes in political perspectives and landscapes in regards to discrimination found, both in the United States and in Denmark. It is a cultural journey from the year 1925 until today, surrounding the lives of legendary Jazz musician Sahib Shihab and his son Jamil GS, an internationally acclaimed music and fashion photographer. Seen through father and son, and each of their artistic expressions, the film shows the social transformations in the Danish as well as American society.

Scriptwriter Sissel Dalsgaard Thomsen puts words of wisdom from consultant Hanna Lundblad on the board. We are in full swing on Day 1 of the GROWING PAINS workshop. Today we worked on the characters, and good things are starting to happen. We now have a vet in the film.
This is the basis of both a documentary and a fiction film, where an actor uses a real person as the basis of the character in the feature film. We wish explore the human boundaries of both the actor the portrayed and the image of them both in the fiction character. In the words of Magritte “this is not a person – it is the image of a person”
