TIL HAVETS ENDE

Music for a documentary about «The Tall Ship Race».

Description (in Norwegian): Allerede før Statsraad Lehmkuhl er ute i åpen sjø, ligger et dusin av det frivillige mannskapet håpløst sjøsyke på dekk. Det lover ikke bra for regattaen de skal delta i, med mål om å vinne. Sersjant Daniel viser medfølelse for det uerfarne mannskapet, men må likevel piske dem opp til en ny krevende seilmanøver. Det ingen vet, er at den barske og tatoverte Daniel bærer på et savn og en hemmelighet som han ikke vil avsløre før de har nådd fram ved havets ende.

DA DOVRE FALT

Music for documentary produced by Høgskolen på Lillehammer.

I Jens Stoltenbergs nyttårstale i 2007 ble det såkalte månelandingsprosjektet annonsert. Månelandingsprosjektet gikk ut på at det skulle settes opp et teknologisenter på Mongstad hvor forskning på karbonfangst og -lagring skulle finne sted. Statoil fikk også innvilget byggingen av et gasskraftverk på terminalen, forbeholdt at alle utslipp skulle renses.
Innen utgangen av 2013, etter utgifter som ligger i overkant av 2,4 milliarder kroner var ikke bare månelandingen kansellert og testsenteret nedlagt.. Statoils gasskraftverk står fortsatt i drift den dag i dag og går med økonomiske tap, uten at et eneste gram CO2 har blitt renset.

Watch excerpts

In Norwegian:
Regissøren opplever at alt i livet handler om konkurranse. Alle vil og skal være best. Martin skal til OL, Catharina er av våre beste utøvere innen klassisk musikk og Charlotte har alt – hun er ung, pen, smart, høyt utdannet og er kjendis innen musikk og mote. Regissøren derimot, føler på at hun ikke er best i noe.Hvorfor er det viktig å bli best og hva gjør det med mennesker som sosiale individer? Hva skjer når alle vil være på topp? Denne filmen tar deg med på en reise, en reise som starter personlig og utvikler seg til en analyse av hvor vårt samfunn er på vei og hvorfor vi mennesker egentlig er så drevet av konkurranse. Kan vi styre det?

BUSINESS AS USUAL

Music for a documentary produced by Klapp Media.

In the spring of 2000 two young men each initiated a company on the Internet. The goal was to make big money on the Dot-Com boom. Frode Hansen quit his job as a salesman and sold his expensive car. He wanted to start a worldwide site for party and practical fun accessories: www.maxparty.com. A site where you could find ideas for birthdays, weddings and other parties, and where you could buy party effects. But first he needed financing - an estimated NOK 380 million! The second entrepeneur, Per Kristian Vestre, went straight from being a student to a position as an assistant director of Dossier Solutions. At this time, the Dot Com-business offered a high status. " IT-entrepreneur was the right stuff, filmstar, what the fuck?" he says. Plenty of millions was invested into Dossier Solutions. The product was an online CV that was supposed to provide employers with a better knowledge of the human resources within their companies. Soon the 23 years old Per Kristian Vestre spent 20 000 NOK an hour on getting the company off the ground. At his peak the 23 year old employed almost 100 people and was aiming for more when he went to Singapore in order to establish an Asian office. Suddenly the stockmarket collapsed. Our two entrepreneurs had to get money fast. In a race against time, it was tempting to decorate the numbers in the accounts. In the documentary "Business as Usual" we follow the ups and downs of Frode and Per Kristian during 3 years. The stakes were high. One of the young men lost all, suffered personal bankruptcy and ended up on welfare. The other one was successful and travelled around the world with the money he made.

POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE

The phone rings. You answer, and hear a young man's voice say he represents a charitable organization. Who is this person? Who does he work for?

"Positive Mental Attitude" is a character driven documentary about telesales. We follow the managers and employees of Televita, a telemarketing company that works for charitable organisations.
Tor Ove Røe owns and runs Televita with his wife Anne Helga. Their job is to take young trainees who wants to be a part of the business and make them great salespeople. Negative thoughts must be avoided at any price. The first month is the hardest; most of us couldn't take being yelled at repeatedly by people who don't want raffle tickets. Tor Ove fights to keep his salespeople's spirits up: "nobody will make me bow my head because I work in sales. Our entire community consists of retail. We will learn to be proud of working in telesales!"
Inexperienced salespeople may make a hundered calls without landing a sale, while a prime salesperson can sell raffle tickets worth 40,000 kroners in a single day. There are many tricks of the trade and Tor Ove conditions his employees with the salesman's necessary attitude: "Sales is 100% mentally controlled." They
must maintain the positive mental attitude!

"Positive Mental Attitude" premiered on NRK [Norwegian State Broadcasting] in January 2007. It has also been broadcast by ETV [Estonia].
Length: 51 minutes. In Norwegian with Norwegian or English subtitles. Format: DigiBeta 16:9
