Did You Know?


"O'Hellige Jul!" is the first effort of directors Magne Steinsvoll and Per-Ingvar Tomren to make a real full-length film and they wanted to use this experience as a private film education. In order to grow as much as possible as filmmakers, they wanted to make the production as challenging as they could. This included never using CGI, working only with amateurs, children, animals, not having a finished script during production and building the entire film out of pieces that ordinary films wouldn't have used. One of the concepts for "O'Hellige Jul!" is that it would be like if the film makers came over a trash can filled with footage that an ordinary Christmas slasher had thrown away, because they were either too brutal or mundane, and decided to edit these scenes together. Making a coherent and entertaining story only out of pieces normal films would reject seemed like a perfect challenge for the daring filmmakers. See more »
