Chapter 1: Part 2. Modeling

Recording date:


12th of January 2004

I dropped by Canibal Casting and Folk & Film (People & Film). I talked in front of the camera about myself so that they have some information and were able to view my presence in front of the camera. I also dropped by the Den Norske Skuespiller foreningen (Norwegian Acting association) which was located two floors below Canibal Casting.

I walked back to Grunerløkka where my brothers home was located.

Later in the evening Hanne from Roxy Models called and told me that she had a job for me in an ad kampanje for TeleNor (Norwegian Telecom company). The job was the following week on the 20th of January. Hanne would call or e-mail me details later on about the job. She told me it paid 3000kr (about $300) which was pretty good for a few hours modeling job here in Norway. I was excited! It was my first modeling job here in Norway in a very long time!

20th of January

We were two guys who took part in the modeling shoot. It was more work then I remember from earlier and laughing on cue when they ask me to is not as easy, at least when I had to repeat it over and over again. There were the two of us doing our best to give the photographer and the guy from the Ad agency what they wanted. The ad will be used in Aftenposten (Norway’s largest newspaper) or/and Dagens Næringsliv (a business newspaper). TeleNOR’s ad campaign is going on now so the ad can run anytime soon. That is if TeleNOR liked the result of the pictures. The pictures turned out ok, but they looked rather boring with very little sparkly life in them. But I got paid a nice hourly rate as a model.

The result.
