I’m continually impressed with the directorial work of Kristoffer Borgli, his vision is pure and unique. I’ve been posting about his work for over a year now, and he’s still maintained his honest weirdness in his work, a beautiful blend of the mundane and the fantastic. His most recent video is for Casiokids and their new song Det Haster!, which in many ways is a continuation of the first video he did for their song En Vill Hest. Here are some thoughts on the video straight from Kristoffer himself:
All the way since my first Casiokids video, I started thinking all my videos should be connected, so I have gradually made every film with a little hint of previous work. But it’s always after coming up with an original and stand alone idea that I start connecting them. Like different dreams, but all dreamt the same night.
So the idea for this was to make something about the biological frame of the mind, how growing up under certain conditions has a lot to say on your future, and what you believe in. The teddybear became a symbol of this given frame of your mind, and then I show different possible outcomes connected to the symbol.
It’s maybe a big discussion for music videos, and I don’t think music videos should be a direct forum for social science, so I twisted and turned it around so it would be a music video, and also a music video that fits within that night of dreams.
