I want to work with you again!

It was a while ago since I wrote, I’ve been evaluating what has happened, and I have started a new project, called "Granny’s Dancing on the Table", which some of you might already know. The link to Granny on facebook is http://www.facebook.com/grannysdancing

Me and Andrea at Tangram Film will do this project together with Helene at Good World, Bobbi and Karin at Ozma gamedesign, Anna at Kore productions and Richie and Erling at Medea – the research institute of Malmö University, who also helped to get Nasty up on The Pirate Bay -I will soon give you an introduction of this wonderful team! And of course – hopefully – together with many more people and not at least all of YOU in some way or another, cause this project will be all about interaction and collaboration.

I am so amazed by all the fantastic work you have done, spreading the movie, seeding, translating, organize screenings or just be supportive, so I have decided I want to release the next feature also with a creative commons license, and I want you to be able to take part much more, already from the beginning of the production of the movie.

But this time I also want to find “regular” financing, cause I want the team to get paid, and it will be a challenge to both find money and to work with CC. I’m convinced it will work, but I will need you help! To be continued…

So far we have started to work with the script on facebook, where you can contribute with your own personal stories, thoughts and ideas, and soon we will walk into the next phase where you will be able to contribute with different kind of artistic material. But before I would like to know what you would like to do, what your whishes and needs and wants are…? Pease write, and let me know!

Tomorrow I am invited to talk at something called Good morning 2020 - follow at twitter #GM2020, and take a look at the homepage: http://www.amiando.com/gm2020.html This is a conference for entrepreneurs, business-people and new media-people, and it’s about how to be prepared for the future.

Of course I started to think about what to say, and realized that the relationship with you all – not as audience – but as co-creators and co-producers - is the most important thing for me as a director, and I believe my biggest challenge is to create a great space where YOU can create things and invent what’s going to happen.

I will also talk about how you took care of the movie, and how my perspective on creativity, and in fact, the world, has forever changed. Thank you for that!

Hanna and the Granny-team!

The bank loan is GONE!!!!

Yesterday, almost one year after the premiere of Nasty at The Pirate Bay, it was screened at Swedish Television - as the first movie ever with a CC-license. I am not sure what this mean…. But I’m quite sure it means SOMETHING. Maybe it means more people will think of CC as a license for their work of art? Maybe means “the system” starts to realize they can’t fight the future, and that the concept of free culture continues to find its path?

I don’t know, what do you think it means?? What will it mean if more people use CC?

Do you think it will have an effect?

What’s concrete is that they pay us 7500 EUR, the same amount we so far received in donations. It’s less than they pay an ordinary Swedish movie, but still it’s awesome to us. This mean:

We can pay the bank loan. The bank loan is gone!!!!!! Damn it we did it! :) :)

We can make DVD:s. So now there will be REAL DVD:s with REAL covers for those of you who wants one! (please let me know if you’re interested. )

We can pay some of our invoices concerning master- copies, old application fees for festivals, and stupid things like that.

And it means that money we recieve from NOW on, will go to the TEAM and THE ACTORS! So any one who now contributes with little or a lot, directly pays the crew!

And this means a hell of a lot. And actually it means we did it! And it’s all thanks to you. Cause you were seeding, supporting, writing, paying. Maybe it’s like this: If you really really whish for the world to change – maybe somtehing will start to grow, starting with just a vauge scent of transformation.

Yesterday I was at a pre-premier for a wonderful movie, a dark fairytale. The movie tells us: If you wish for something hard enough, it will happen.

I think so.

Soon you will be able to know everything about this movie, in a very special way… ;) Have to bite my tongue not to tell… Aaahh! To be continued…. :)

And by the way.... we have found a Granny Dollar!!! :) :)

Love and keep wishing!

Swedish love in Kiev!

About 250 persons saw Nasty Old People in Kiev on Thursday. It was a fantastic screening with one hour of Q&A afterwards. The title in Ukraine is “Swedish love”

And this is the story of Nasty Old People coming to Kiev:

Valeriy and Irina found the movie on a torrent site, downloaded it and liked it so much they showed it to a distributer in Kiev, and the result was that Nasty was shown at two cinemas in Kiev for two weeks, plus this extra screening.

Now the movie will be shown in at least three other cities in Ukraine, plus on Ukrainian television! This is what can happen when a movie is released under Creative Common and when people are entrusted with the opportunity to distribute.

See you out there!
