Into the autumn, we are shooting on the island of Fyen, telling the beautiful story of “Høst” (Harvest). Based on an original book from 1911, the setting is Denmark in the late 1880’s where the womens perspective of living and evolving themselves is portrayed. We shoot on 16 mm film which is an absolute bliss and add a wonderful, subtile feel to the visual identity of the film.
Director and screenwriter: Tea Lindeburg. DOP: Marcel Zyskind. Productions designer: Jesper Clausen. Prop master: Michala Steiner-Rode. Props: Rasmus With and Johan Dandanell.
Paperhouse, also known as La Casa De Papel films in Copenhagen these days.
I was fortunate to be able to be a part of the Danish art departement as Prop Master. Unfortunately, just one day before our preps started I needed urgent surgery in my back and therefore couldn’t join the production as planned. Fortunately I am having a quick recovery and I am now so proud of my Danish colleagues for pulling this large scale production off with the talented people of La Casa De Papel.
Currently we are waiting to start pre-production of the continuation of the feature film “De forbandede år” which premiered on January 9th of this year. Over 400.000 people went to see this amazing story at the movies. Where the first film took us though the years 1939-1943 along side the Danish family Holm, the second film will bring us the the liberation of The Second World war in 1945.

These visual stories soon showed out to have an great impact on Hitler’s leadership from there on.
On January 8th 2020, the first episode will see the day of light. We can’t wait to share this story with you.
