New job: ‘Fotoredigerare’ at SVT Nyheter

After having worked with mainly documentaries for the last ten or so years, I am now embarking on a new journey: For the next couple of months I will be working at Swedish television – more specifically for SVT News. I will work as a camera operator and editor and my work will be broadcasted in the many different news slots SVT has.

I am looking forward to this new opportunity. It´s a whole new world to be publishing news on a more daily rhythm – compared to the documentaries I have worked on – that were released about once a year.

I have recently moved into a new shared and creative office space on Södermalm/Sofo in Stockholm. Inspiring colleagues and a great space to work!

Do not hesitate to contact me if you need help with your media projects. Short term or long term. Filming, editing, post-production or websites! Swedish, English or German. Small-scale or large-scale. I am ready to help.  Call me!

 

Dokument inifrån

I now watched all three parts of ‘Dokument Inifråns’ “Experimenten” on SVT. What a scandal! And well done, SVT/Dokument Inifrån/Bosse Lindqvist. I had been in contact with the case during the producing of this series since I was asked to translate some material from German to Swedish. So I knew this was coming – but I didn’t know how it would turn out. It sure will be calling for many engaged discussions in many homes in Stockholm and elsewhere. Will be interesting to see how this evolves…

Happy new year!

Welcome to www.enno.net and a happy new year!

I had a great christmas break and am now back in Stockholm. I am looking forward to some nice winter months – and to work on some exciting projects. More on this to come. In the meantime, if you need help with your media projects – filming, editing, postproduction or websites – please get in touch!

 

Double Happiness

The second day of the ArchFilmSthlm Festival was out at Cyklopen in Högdalen. I had always wanted to go there but never got round to. Well, on saturday I finally managed and went to see “Double Happiness” – a documentary about the Austrian village of Hallstatt – and its Chinese copy. Such a great pick for the festival – and a very good film topic.

I especially liked that in the beginning of the film one was constantly uncertain if we were being shown the original or the copy. If you ever get a chance to see this film – do.

ArchFilmSthlm opening with “Barbicania”

Years ago, my film about the changing Beijing was shown at the ArchFilmFest in Lund. This year ArchFilmSthlm was started. Not by the same people, but in the same spirit. Their opening night was last friday. They kicked off the festival with a film about the Barbican, in London. “Barbicania” is a video diary about this iconic building in London. Over the period of one month, the filmmakers have gone each day and documented one aspect of the Barbican. That way they have visited peoples flats, the library, the archives, the theatre, church, graveyard, washing-saloon, roofs – all aspects of the Barbican where portrayed.

All in all a very well done portray of the Barbican – and a great method for a documentary…

Funnily enough, I had my graduation ceremony of my Bachelor degree at the Barbican. And in the movie, as they are filming inside the auditorium, my old university was having another event…  It is a small world.

Bikes VS Cars

I finally watched Fredrik Gerttens film “Bikes vs Cars”. The version that is out on SVT Play. It is a great film that brings together many of my interests in sustainable city planning, biking and urban futures. How can we continue to live in cities in a responsible and realistic way when soon there will be twice as many cars in the world. Interesting characters and cases in the film.

If you haven´t seen it yet, consider watching it on Vimeo on Demand. It is the longer version that is available for rent there. And I assume that is my only critique: the SVT version seemed to be cut down a bit too harsh. That said, I don´t mind the length of 58 minutes – when it is well done… In this case, the longer one may be better. I haven´t seen it in that version – yet… Either way – watch it!

 

new enno.net

And finally, here is the new enno.net

I made my first www.enno.net in 1998. For years the site was a static HTML page. Its function to be my personal private portfolio has not changed. In think it was around 2011 that I switched the design to wordpress. I spend a lot of time looking for themes, became a good customer at themeforest , buying all kinds of themes, always hoping that this is the theme that would finally satisfy my vision for www.enno.net. but they didn’t.

Finally, here it is in a new design. Whilst not final, it is closer to what I was longing for. For the first time I have written a theme all from scratch by myself. In the process I learned a lot. There still are some issues. They will be addressed bit by bit…

And maybe, maybe I´ll also find some more time to blog…

The 10th year

If you suddenly lose every single member of your family – how do you manage to live on? We meet four individuals who share an unthinkable tragic experience:  losing their loved ones in the 2004 tsunami. But they differ in their ways of coping with loss and grief.

In this obsevational documentary we meet the main characters in everyday life situations. Part of the filming was made in the first year after the tsunami.  However,  focus is on the 10th year after the disaster.

What does it take to continue to live – even though everything worth living for is gone?

It turns out that although the questions are the same, the answers are as different as the personalities in this film.  By sharing their experience and their thoughts on this complex issue, the main characters shed light on the road to recovery, thus making the film a powerful knowledge based tool and document.

Generation Tsunami – ten years later

In the Aceh Province, the 2004 Tsunami left 170,000 people dead and some 400,000 homeless. In 2005, the internationally awarded documentary The Tsunami Generation profiled remnants of families struggling to get life back to normal. 

Now, 10 years later, filmmaker Folke Rydén returns to meet the same survivors.

This film gives a fundamental account of a societies long term struggle to cope with the aftermath of one of the worst natural disasters in living memory.

The 2004 killer tsunami reduced the coastal province in Aceh, Indonesia, to rubble. The tragedy triggered unprecedented generosity from the international community, with a total of 7 billion dollars being donated to the area.

It was also a catalyst for the end of a 30-year war between the Indonesian government and a separatist movement.

The tsunami not only dismembered the society; it challenged the society’s mode of life, hurt its pride and symbols, and compelled its remaining members to redefine their relationship with God. In the power struggle of this oil rich region all chips were in the air. Government, guerrilla and the men of God – all aspired to gain from the new situation.

So what happened?

In this documentary we meet the same main characters from the 2005 film. We tell their story.

Through emotional personal stories the film gives a fundamental account of a societies long term struggle to cope with the aftermath of the worst natural disasters in living memory.

Ripples on Baltic Waters

In spring 2014 I was contacted by journalist Jenny Jevert. She asked if I could join her on a short notice trip to film a farmer in Germany. I gladly accepted.

The result is now being shown on conferences around the baltic sea.

Rohingyas (news)

On a beach in Thailand 200 Rohingya boat people are tied up and surrounded by soldiers. It’s an image which taps into allegations that Rohingya refugees are forced into slavery or ransomed for money. “Sixty thousand bath? He not have money”, says Durman, whose Rohingya relative is being kept captive in the jungle. A Burmese pogrom against the Rohingya is forcing many to flee the country in unseaworthy boats. They often end up in Thailand where they disappear into a network of prison camps. Mohammad, who escaped, describes the “torture” which he was subjected to for months. The human trade is allegedly conducted with the assistance of the police and military. A senior police officer admits he’s heard reports of officials getting involved: “I have seriously investigated this issue. But I still do not have any evidence”. Chutima, a journalist investigating the trafficking, and the involvement of Thai officials, is heartbroken. “It’s worse and worse, day by day. Nobody cares”.

Nordic Voxel

ÅF Ljusarkitektur asked me to produce a promo video presenting their lighting design for Nordic Voxel. I did the filming and the editing.

Nordic Voxel transports the splendour of crisp blue skies and the warmth of a glowing sunset deep into the atrium. It reconnects people in and around the atrium with aspects of natural light. This gives them a rich and unified experience of the space transformed by light. By reconnecting people to the rhythms, colours and atmospheric qualities of natural light, Nordic Voxel provides subconscious information about time and space that enhances the individual’s daily experience.

The Cod Game

The Cod Game tells the story of human sacrifice versus the struggle to save the environment. In a unique portrait of a few fishermen in the Polish port of Darlowko, the film gives an inside view of the price paid to save the cod in the Baltic Sea. Over two turbulent years, The Cod Game follows the events that put the Polish cod fishing fleet on the brink of collapse.

Marcin Cholewinski is the youngest and most fearless fisherman in Darlowko. His biggest dream is to continue an old family fishing tradition. Shortly after buying his first boat – DAR 55 – the European Union decides to punish Polish fisherman for many years of overfishing. A cod fishing ban is imposed. But Marcin ignores the restrictions. Instead, he catches as much cod as he can. His confident attitude is encouraged by the local fisherman’s union, and Marcin takes the lead in the union’s struggle to preserve the small fisherman’s right to fish.

The Cod Game follows Marcin and his colleagues in their struggle to survive. It depicts  how controversial political decisions affect normal people and push them to break the law.

Dirty Waters

The second film about the Baltic Sea had its premiere in May 2011. My role has been Postproduction Producer, Editor & Camera.

Short Synopsis:

Algae blooms, dead sea beds – the Baltic Sea is suffering.

Slimy and disgusting algae have become a daily problem for holiday-makers along the Baltic shores. Industrial emissions and untreated municipal sewage water have over the last century left the sea suffocated.

This is common knowledge and efforts are being made to cope with the problem. However, something quite appalling is about to happen, something that is not as widely known.

For the first time, the people around the Baltic Sea will get this complex situation explained, learn about possible solutions and actions and hear from the politicians responsible.

From the makers of award-winning documentary For Cod’s Sake comes the second film in the series about the Baltic Sea.
