Pigs - drama

“Pigs” is a short thriller about a pork-farmer somewhere in the Norwegian fjords that knows more about a disappearance case than he will tell. A couple of tourists have gone missing, and neither the local police nor the female TV-reporter comes to grips with it. At least not until it’s too late.

The film is a thriller with a good portion of black humour. As they say in the Norwegian west: All’s well that ends, at all. And so it goes in Sogn and Fjordane ...by night.

The project is one out of four winners in the thriller competition of “Filmfondet FUZZ” and will be aired on TV2 in 2008.


Director: Geir Henning Hopland
Script: Jørn Kurt Bergo

The Archive - comedy/drama series

If you want to preserve a feeling of relative safety and harmony in life you better avoid thinking too much about certain matters. Like what sausages consist of, how laws are made. And what really goes on in hosptals...

The Archive follows the daily chores of six individuals who work in the deep catacombs of a hospital, more specifically in the hospital archive where the case records are kept.

Archive Director Dagny loves her colleagues with all her heart. But is love and care enough when the hospital administration sends their most insensitive computer engineer to take on the (long overdue) task of digitizing every file from A to Z?

How can they preserve status quo when facing the evil nerd from hell? Dagny claims they have nothing to fear but fear itself. After all engineers have their own jobs, she reasons, they have no interest in taking their's. Her strategy: don't rock the boat and everything will eventually return to normal...

10 episodes.
Made for TV3, 2006.

Co-financed by The Norwegian Film Fund.
