Film Douglas ehf, has decided to take under it’s wing a young and talented scriptwriter/idea man and mentor him in the art of making meaningful yet darkly mundane and twisted comedies (in other words: Scandinavian films). First off is a pitch for a short film competition for Nokia (yes, Scandinavian also). Now, the requirements to enter the competition meant that we had to video tape our pitch and keep it publicly online on vimeo. So, it’s out there for all of you to judge … along with the Nokia judges.
Interesting fact: Nokia made rubber boots (wellingtons) before entering the mobile phone market. Every Scandinavian who grew up between circa the 1950’s to the 1990’s knows them as the rubber boot makers … Nokia was THE BOOT BRAND in Iceland.
