About ihatefreedom

Ihatefreedom is a website made by a few teenagers in Norway whose main goal is to fill it with their work. We throw any video/audio/web projects we're involved in here. It was started in April 2010 when Erlend got the domain name for free from Hank Green, and felt it would be a waste of a catchy domain name not to do something with it. We do not hate freedom. Or at least, we have no official policy on it.

Short film “PLAGIAT”

Short film “PLAGIAT”

Like most of our films, this is in Norwegian. The short was one of our last school projects, and it was an immensely enjoyable production. Made by the crew behind the Jakten series, it is an exercise in postmodernism – every line and every shot is an explicit reference to at least one other work.

Jakten på Don Solli

Jakten på Don Solli

Jakten på Don Solli (The Hunt for Don Solli) is a 2011 Norwegian advent calendar video series made by 5 students from Elvebakken vgs in Oslo. Don Solli, the principal of Elvebakken has been kidnapped, and it’s up to Tani Tansen to save him. Each episode (as well as the teasers and promotional material) parodies a new genre, while the series tells a consistent story.

The series was created by Sindre Hansen, Sindre Strand and Erlend Holbek. The episodes were primarily written by the Sindres, while Erlend directed every episode.

Tani Hansen starred as Tani Tansen, Camilla Martinussen as Camilla Martinsen and Lill Therese Scheie Berg as Lill Schperg. The primary villain of the series was the evil substitute teacher Kurt Singstad, played by Simen Meyer.

The series was shot by Erik Nordeng and Halvor Njerve, who also contributed much of the music – with the major exception of the genre-hopping theme song composed and arranged by Thomas Gunnari Røtting.

The series proved to be so popular and fun to make that we produced a sequel/spin-off series named Jakten på Tani Tansen (The Hunt for Tani Tansen) for easter 2012. The series consisted of fewer, shorter and more experimental episodes featuring the new protagonist Kristine Stischperg, played brilliantly by Kristine Stiberg.

Thanks to the great Sindre Hansen, as well as Helene Samuelsen and Line Ellingsen, for starring. This was a quick and effective shoot, and that’s largely thanks to you guys. Check the finished film out on YouTube.
