After a holiday and some time off here in Sweden, celebrating midsummer, we’re back and very proud to announce that Andreas Öhman, creative director, won the Young Director Award at Cannes Lions for GE Curing. We are very happy for Andreas - and for us! Except for Andreas we had several of our in house talent and some freelancers working on making the film what it is today. We put a lot of heart and soul into it and we truly appreciate the recognition!

Right here is an article about it from Swedish magazine Dagens Media: http://www.dagensmedia.se/nyheter/byraer/article3718805.ece

Bitch Hug wins!

Recently Bitch Hug (Bitchkram) won its first prize - the ECFA prize for best European Film! The jurys statment was as follows:

The ECFA jury has consisted Tanja Milictanjaic, Tonje Hardersen and Nikolai Schultz.
 
The ECFA award goes to Bitch Hug, directed by Andreas Öhman
Bitch Hug is a beautiful and unusual drama about growing up and the friendship between the two girls Kristin and Andrea. It’s a stylish, fun and heart-warming film. It is dynamic, direct and honest and more than anything it bursts with energy which is especially accentuated through strong and catchy music.
One cannot help but love and hate Kirsten, the film’s main character, because she is selfish and bitchy, but also weak and fragile.
Young audiences will no doubt be able to relate to Bitch Hug and its characters’ energy, rebellion, spite, insecurity, curiosity, ambition and friendship.
 
Big congratulations to Andreas Öhman and everyone else involved! You can read more about it here (Norwegian):

Carina Berg has become a very popular tv-show host in the last couple of years, she is truly beloved by the people and now she’s got a new show. It’s a portable talkshow where she has a certain audience that travels with her as she meets different celebrities.

We here got to do the title sequence and graphic package for the show. It’s a colorful, animated title sequence and there is a constant underlying humor throughout the clip. You can watch it here!

Premiere night!

image

Tonight the new TV-show “Husräddarna” premieres on Swedish TV3. We had the privilege to make the title sequence and the graphic package.

A huge part of the title sequence is animated, but the actual house is real. We posted a sneak-peak earlier (right here), when we built it, and then we got to set it on fire. We got some really cool effects, and I’m pretty sure the crew had a lot of fun too!

Watch the title sequence click here!

Shooting Dove

Dove How To from NAIVE on Vimeo.

Last year we made a series of films for Dove. The concept was “How To” and Dove wanted to show how to use their products. We wanted to do clean and modern films and fortunately Dove and the agency, Razorfish, had the same vision. The shoot was a lot of fun in a beautiful location. The house had a wonderful view of Mälaren and some of the staff went for a swim as the day was over since the weather was really nice! Can you imagine a better way to wrap?
