TRUESTORY

A project commissioned by TrueStory, created in collaboration with Morten Svane. TrueStory is an experience company that represents hundreds of hosts all over Scandinavia who offer their own unique experiences. Our goal was to embrace their focus on their hosts and create short-films for them that dive into the mindset and story behind the person. Why are they passionate about what they do and how does it bring them joy? This is part of TrueStory’s visual identity online to create interest and awareness around their brand and experiences.

CANE RUM SOCIETY

One of the hosts we selected to create a film about was Duane, the owner of Cane Rum Society in Stockholm. Duane grew up in Trinidad and has a long-standing love for rum and Caribbean food.

He has merged those two worlds and brought the feeling of the Caribbean to the centre of Stockholm. The purpose of the film was to tell Duane’s story and share his passion with the viewer, hopefully evoking the feeling of wanting to share that experience with him.

Filmed on location at Cane Rum Society, Stockholm

STOKKEBYE

We selected the Stokkebye family as a host for a TrueStory short film as Jacob has a unique backstory of travelling to France as a young man and falling in love with the process of making wine. A dream formed in his mind of making his own wine one day. A generational passion that he could share with his kids and build the experience with them.
We wanted to showcase the process of creating the wine, but more so create a connection with Jacob and how wine-making has become a lifelong mission of his.

COPENHAGEN DISTILLERY

A place where cold rustic metal meets warm wood. At Copenhagen Distillery there’s no doubting the passion for brewing and distilling delicious liquors. By attending their tastings you get more than just a sensory explosion – you get a peak into what it means to be passionate about taste, performance & alcohol. The experience might just evoke an old memory that you had almost forgotten.
