Adventure has always been the core of Turbin Film's work. Being so fortunate to be located in Norway, we have some of the most stunning nature on our doorsteps waiting to be explored. Here is some of our work:
NORTHBOUND [Short film]: Ice, driftwood, foamy waves and … skateboards? Four skaters head north to the cold Norwegian coast, applying their urban skills to a wild canvas of beach flotsam, frozen sand and pastel skies. The result is a beautiful mashup — biting winds and short days, ollies and a frozen miniramp.
Northbound has been selected for prestigious festivals such as Tribeca, Clermont Ferrand, Hot Docs, Palms Springs, BANFF, and many more, in addition to been nominated for Amanda (Norwegian Academy Awards) for best short film.
ON THIN ICE [Documentary]: Jørn has a dream; The most absurd so far. A dream that actually fits him superbly. He is a filmmaker, nature lover and skateboard enthusiast and what would fit better then to make a skateboard film staged on a frozen beach in Lofoten surrounded by high mountains and meter long waves? And that's not all; He will gather the best skaters from Norway and give them the opportunity to skate the world's first ramp made out of just sand and water. Totally dependent upon the weather, the project is on thin ice when confronted with the Northern storms.
BEAR ISLAND [Documentary]: Three brothers set out on a very special trip together. Motivated by the classic surfer’s relentless quest for the perfect wave, they travel to the remote Norwegian island of Bjørnøya. Lugging a surfboard, snowboard, paraglider and various other equipment they transform the challenging nature of Bjørnøya into their own playground. The brothers find their ice-cold waves and precipitous slopes, and we get the chance to join in on the excitement of shredding arctic snow and cruising the ice cold waves.
PLAYGROUND LOFOTEN [Documentary series]: Playground Lofoten are following the Wegge siblings on their adventures with the majestic mountains and ever-changing weather of Lofoten as a backdrop. The three brothers and a sister challenge themselves through new ways of exploring nature, all while getting to know each other better. We join them while surfing in ice cold arctic waters, skiing under the northern lights and paragliding off steep mountain sides.
