Award winning Rett Ned


This picture says it all! The reason I am so happy here, is because my music video Rett Ned for Building Instrument has won the Honorabel Mention Award at the Norwegian Short Film festival at Grimstad, in Norway !

The jury: Making a music video for an instrumental song could be a daring task. In this video based on a hand drawn world, the music and the visuals are complementing each other in a memorable fashion.
It is meticulous, meditative and elusive.
