The Demtones may sound retro – but they’re not retired yet!

Photography, Photoshop

I’ve been raving about The Demtones ever since they first hired me to design a logo for them. We’re further down the road now and I wanted to show you a few photos I got during the videoshoot for “What you got to lose”. The video was shot and directed by MW visual media and parts of it, in a set dressed as a room where a grandma would feel at home.

The video for “What you got to lose” was shot at the old direstation, Gåsebäck.

I really dig the sound coming from these guys and it goes hand in hand with my passion for retro colorpalettes and designs. These images serve as social media content and pressimages.

Curious about the video? Check it out here!

Published in industry magazine.

During #artstreethbg the artists went through a lot of sponsored paint and Swedish industry magazine “Målmarmästaren” wrote a little piece about the festival. That’s all nice and neat, but for me the biggest thrill is that I got some of my photos published. Funny thing is that one photo is of my sister and the electrical box we painted together, and the other one is a photo of my grandma visiting the streetart workshop which was held on the last day of the festival. A nice little victory on a otherwise rainy Monday.

FALCON II – Making a movie in 24 hours.

Film, Photoshop

Noomaraton is the largest film contest in Sweden and is held on the first Saturday in September each year. You register a team and on competition day every team involved gets the same criteria for making their movie. The competition starts at 09.00 a.m and ends 24 hours later. By then your film must be ready and uploaded if you want to stay in the competition. The rules are the same each year; maximum four crew members who work on the film (actors not included), one theme, three objects and three locations which must be in the movie. This year we got the following:

  • Theme – Reinforced reality
  • Objects – Flashlight, dice and stapler
  • Locations – Dining spot, snapchat and (town)square

We knew from the start that we didn’t want to make a film which is safe and politically correct. We wanted to make the film we wanted to see and enjoy. So we went full 1980’s and completly overboard in the process. America vs. Russia, nuclear threat, training/final shootout montage, witty puns and punchlines, terrible subtitling and a (male) washed up hero of few words. Usually the films which win are the ones with a somewhat safe story so we’re not really counting on making it to the finals with this one, but we are very happy with the result.

Production was fun, stressful and tiring, just as expected. Here’s what our day looked like:

  • 09.00 – 11.00 – Screenplay
  • 11.00 – 12.00 – Props and costumes
  • 12.00 – 18.00 – Shooting scenes
  • 20.00 – 05.00 – Post production

We all love this little short so much that we’re thinking of making a proper short with the concept. Actors Lille Peter Jönsson (Falcon) and Jonny Blomkvist (Petrov Wodka) are dying to see some more action, and a few other interesting Malmö-based actors are lined up if Falcon III makes it to production.

FALCON2

The screening of FALCON II is taking place at Panora cinema in Malmö on Tuesday (September 12th) and the doors open at 17.30. Two films from each region make it to the finals in Stockholm. We’re not counting on it, but then again, stranger things have happened. As soon as FALCON II is out of competition I’ll put it up online.

(FALCON (I) has not been made yet, we’re still waiting for Hollywood to call.)

The Tim Timmey interview.

Film

I’ve known Tim for quite some time. We grew up in the same area in the 90’s and were both into skateboarding, rollerblading and streetart. Even if we never really hung out (Tim’s a bit older than me and was always better at the above mentioned activities) I enjoyed being around him when we happened to be in the same spots.

In early 2000 we sometimes bumped into each other at parties of mutual friends. He’s always been there in some weird roundabout way and I’ve always looked up to him – he’s just a cool, playful really nice guy.

When I found out he was going to paint one of the big walls for ArtstreetHbg I was quite excited to be able to watch him paint again and it reminded me about my early teenage years. Tim was the artist I spent the most time documenting and we had some really nice days together, him painting, me shooting him. Below is a short bonusvideo from the second day of the festival of Tim working away on his mural.

Due to timepressure, this interview sadly never got any English subtitles. Sorry ’bout that.

This interview was made for the ArtstreetHBG project and if you’re interested in how I set up and planned the whole interview (tech-wise and editing) you can read about it here.

If you find Tim to be just as interesting as I do, give him a follow on his instagram.

The Levi Jacobs interview.

Film

Levi Jacobs is a Dutch illustrator who started out as a graffitiwriter. The anonymity you get when you’re out at night writing graffiti suited him well since he felt a bit insecure about his artwork as a kid, and that his drawings was something he wanted to keep for himself. But at the same time he dreamt about turning his passion for art into a paying job. He kept going and now he’s doing what he loves for a living.
