The difficulty in creating this project was our limited access to the subject. After a brief interview, the crew had less than a 30 minutes with Knausgaard to film him working in his studio.
Fortunately, Andrew Michael Ellis, MediaStorm’s Director of Photography, was cognisant of this and worked to capture a variety of camera angles so that there was enough diverse footage to construct the film.
The films were premiered at The Wall Street Journal Magazine’s fifth annual Innovator Awards on November 4, 2015 and were released online the following day.
