Selected Scene from the movie “Silence” (Stille, Dansk)
Copenhagen, March 2013
It was a cold, dark evening in Copenhagen when I realized our music video for Temet Nosce
”Change can only beging with yourself” - was selected at SENE Film, Music & Arts Festival in Rhode Island!
Good Job, Espen Olsen (director)!
Now.. that’s a way to warm someone’s heart! (below: snaps from the video with my footage)
Woah! My Photographs from Danish Championships in Snowboard 2012, were recently published in the “Pist’n Powder” Magasine, the largest and most popular magazined for ski & snowboard fans!
Our music video "Change can only begin" - Temet Nosce was shown in the Norwegian TV (Dagsrevyen Nyheder) at18:40; December 26, 2012 :-) I hope they wont delete the link:-)
tell me, how much are you interested in rivers and their existence in West Africa? If you are not living/working there, probably you (and me) do not give a s#it about it at all. But do you care about the air you breathe, about the GLOBAL WARMING, which affect you and me, no matter where you are right now? Then sit down, and listen for 5min. Thanks!
Did you know that there are going to be built over 30 hydro-power dams on the very powerful rivers in Africa? Already 3 have been built. How does it look like and what does it do? (Pic below presents a dam on the Nil river).
Why am I interested in such issues? My mother spent exactly 1 year (2012) in Africa, Mali, working and researching on such projects. It is claimed by (20 sources so far) international scientists, and ecologists that building HYDRO DAMS in TROPICS cause global warming! -> in such artificial lakes, water is evaporating very very fast - but - such cycle cause methane (one of greengases) to evaporate as well with water. Not even mentioning all the animals living in those rivers and in their areas.
YET, huge companies want to build hydro power stations, since they can provide ELECTRICITY TO locals. OKAY, fine! Giv dem! I won’t protest, but what comes to my mind is: arent there any alternative sources of energy which could “work” in Africa!?
OF COURSE - SOLAR PANELS!!!! which are more benefitial, more affordable (cheaper in production), and more ecological FOR ALL OF AS!
The list of pros is long. My idea is to make a documentray about rivers and hydro dams as well as solar panels in Africa. Especially West Africa (Mali).
My mother is working to stop the hydro dam project in Gouina, a village next to Kayes, Mali and get there SOLAR PANELS instead.
BTW: You can sign in her petition, thanks:
If you would like to hear more, contact me,
I will be looking for a team, to make such exciting movie :-) Fall 2013! More info to come… !
Finally I met the biggest inspiration in my life! My mom just came from Mali, Africa, after spending there 1 year! After all these stories I have heard from her, Mali is a place of possibilities.. in every area.. especially for a filmmaker, a brave one. So many stories to share and show from that place.. which could change our, Europeans/Americans lives. Africa, here I come (one day) !

Red Bull Denmark…
I have to admit it. I was glad that I could experience making movies with Red Bull Denmark Crew (probably you have heard about Felix and his enormous record from the space?) The Red Bull Film crew constantly pushes their boundaries and takes action filmmaking to the next level! It all seems so effortless for them.. for example “The Art of Flight" snowboard movie.. which triggers your brian cells, inspires us, makes you wanna have fun!
Nevertheless, I am glad to show you this unofficial show reel of Red Bull Denmark from 2012, which also contains my footage from 2 action events !
