Dear Vera & William friends!
We are extatic to welcome you all to be a part of our journey!
In this diary, we will share great moments and important announcements to come.
First, we proudly present our audio-visual project «Epos á More» !
This is a tribute to the timeless yet modern woman and Møres great history and cultural legacy. Last November, we went to Møre - Hustadvika and Averøya, located on the north west coast of Norway to do the campaigne shoot. In this blog you will find some behind-the-scenes snaps. We hope you like it as much as we do :)
Look at and experience the spectacular music we utilized for our short video:
Soundtrack by the danish DANHEIM - the track "Kala". We simply LOVE the tones & beats! It kinda brings us back to our Ancestors. DANHEIM has among many projects also made the soundtrack to the Netflix success "Vikings", which we find truly inspiring, - Enjoy!
First day at Hustadvika. It is an extraordinary beautiful and dramatic coastline up there!
