The DNV Story from John Christian Ferner Apalnes on Vimeo.

Client : DNV - Det Norske Veritas
Under an extremely tight deadline, I had to create an informative storyline and animation based on the history of 'DNV', One of Norway's biggest companies.

The film was used ahead of a grand round-table meeting in
Copenhagen, where sustainability and the future were key ingredients.

During a short and intensive work period, I produced the designs, animation and music.
Hope it tells the story effectively

I also designed the poster for event

Experiment: Analog Oscilloscope sound Visualizer project / Noise Yoga from John Christian Ferner Apalnes on Vimeo.

With the help of an oscilloscope and an old monitor we made a sound-responsive visualisation, where the oscilloscope-sound waves generate the visuals projected on our faces. There was no post-production involved, except alligning the footage side by side.

In this project I collaborated with Stian Korntved //

Breaking Up With Reality from John Christian Ferner Apalnes on Vimeo.

A workshop set by the French/Amercian film-maker Michel Auder (michelauder.com/). The whole workshop consisted of making a video response to the theme "Breakup".

I focused on a more conceptual "break-up" rather than a closure between two people. Considering Michel Auder's turbulent background with the art-world , I wanted to do an in-depth interview with him about his views on reality, and even how we tend to break up with it. Based on the interview I created a movie entitled breaking up with reality.

Runtime: 4 min

Filming: John C.
