Now that the first season of “Made in Mosjøen” is complete, Aleksander Nordaas has edited his web series into a feature film — and has made the story of a gun made out a fish available for free. Watch a trailer for “Mosjøen,” which follows the writer/director’s film “Thale,” below.
“Releasing ‘Made in Mosjøen’ for free is not me giving into piracy and throwing more traditional release models overboard,” he told Empire of the release strategy. “As this is my personal project, it’s a chance for me to actually try to play a bit of ball with the filesharers and gain some audience insight, which I believe is vital knowledge to be able to survive as a filmmaker in the rapid evolving market. As far as I’m concerned, not being flexible means eventually breaking.”
Silje Reinåmo (who also appeared in “Thale”) leads the cast alongside Johanne Fossheim, Jon Sigve Skard, Hallvard Holmen and Nordaas himself. Both versions of “Made in Mosjøen” can be found on his website.
