Get Lucky (Field Productions 2008)

Get Lucky Trailer

Up and coming Norwegian director/editor Filip Christensen shows he has the eye and the imagination for assembling compelling sequences from park, urban and big mountain settings.  His editing cuts take the viewer on canny little twists and turns that make well-shot park and rail fare an even more compelling watch. From the looks of the bonus material Christensen shot a lot of film in 2008 but he’s a ruthless editor and he’s presented a solid 45 minutes of deftly edited pieces.  The variety is good here: night shoots, dawn shoot, sunset shoots and everything in between.  The clincher is the soundtrack.  Loaded with Euro indie tracks, the sound steers clear of the rock and hip-hop territory colonized by North American ski film posses.  And while there’s nothing wrong with rock and hip-hop, Christensen’s vibe is a refreshing alternative.  All in all, this is a production company to watch.       By Mark “The Attorney General” Quail – 8/10
