About Olaug

Since graduating from Prague Film School in 2009 I have worked freelance as a cinematographer, editor, director and writer, in both fiction and documentary. I´m currently involved in several projects in different stages of production.The projects I´m working on cover a wide variety in styles and themes. What they all have in common is an ambition to have an emotional and intellectual impact on the audience. They have strong characters believing in life, in progress, and in trusting their inner compass when navigating through life.

Though based in Bergen, Norway, at the time, I always have one eye scouting for international projects and collaborators. Ever since I studied film in Prague with people from all corners of the world my greatest wish has been to continue working with creative partners that share the same cinematic vision and passion for filmmaking.

Film has a unique ability to reach into peoples hearts and minds. No other artform can ”transform” people in the course of just a few minutes. It expands our imagination and view of the world and I feel priveleged to be in a position where I can have my passion as my occupation. The power of a great film is pure magic, and identifying the potential seed is something I focus on when choosing projects to get involved in.
