In Memoriam Thorbjörn Lindström 1968 - 2006

"Happy hour" - © 2000 MDS Productions - Director, Producer and Storywriter.

Short film, colour, 4 1/2min, shot on Super-16, formats: 35mm cinema copy, Broadcast video.

Short description: "The Happy hour in a bar, that should be fun, right? But why do people need to drink to have fun and to be social? Why are people afraid to seek contact with each other? Why are some people just plain boring? Why? These and many other important questions won┤t be answered in this film. But it will put a recognizing smile on your face."

This film came about when me and my friend Joakim Tillheden satt down and decided to try and write a short film script, based on an idea I had. We had both been working with film/video for quite some time. And we felt that it was about time that we created something of our own. And since we both were tired of video we decided that we would shot it on real film.
