Fun times at Hyper + Our Manifesto


No Comments

Last Friday was hilarious. Me and my team presented our manifesto = guidelines for how we want our time at Hyper to be and how we should be towards each other. An example: “The Mullet” – Business in the front, party in the back. Ok, two examples because they are funny and legit: “Eat challenge for breakfast” – Challenge yourself at all times and stretch that comfort zone in every given situation.

We were free-flying during the week and everyone could do whatever they wanted to do. 10 friends and I made a freaking hilarious music-video, and of course, our own DMC song. View the music video here. 

After breaking into dance and snacking we went for some beers and wine.

Presentation Technique


No Comments

To progress as a human it is fundamental to step out of ones comfort zones. It could be as simple as daring to walk up to a cute person in a bar or to present in front of X numbers of humans.

Thanks to school I got to meet and learn from Ilene Sawka. A wonderful person who accidentally became Crown Princess Victoria’s rhetorics teacher in English and after that her career in communication skills got up to express speed (my interpretation of it, she spoke only briefly about this).

Our mission was to prepare a 1.30min presentation about something we want to encourage people to do. My speech is in the post before this one.

When I stood there in front of a group of 8, including Ilene, my heart was racing, I could hear it thumping in my ears. I thought I would faint. We were filmed and then got feedback from ourselves, Ilene, and the rest of the group. My feedback was rewarding and satisfactory and so I knew I had done a good job. Although I can’t get it around my head how standing in front of a film crew, delivering someone else’s written lines, and being completely calm while doing so is so different from doing a presentation?!

It’s probably because I’m presenting myself and my own words, but STILL, it drives me nuts. I suppose practice, practice, and practice is the key and one day doing a presentation will be within my comfort zone.

UNICEF – First brief


No Comments

An intense week at Hyper Island; “Ideation Week”. This is when we learn how to both build ideas but also narrow them down.

This is the week when we got our FIRST BRIEF EVER from a real client! Stoked to say the least!…And it could not have been for a better cause either. We are bending our minds inside-out this week for: UNICEF! 

My team and I reached consensus in our idea blurt-out this afternoon and tomorrow we will spend the day realizing it. On Friday all groups will present their creations. 🙂

Not Too Cool For School


No Comments

 I have a crush on school. Lucky me to have a crush on something hehe. Today was sweet, we are working with the other programs for a couple of weeks and meeting some of those guys was great, although it felt rough to pop the solitude-bubble of my class…=( We got to take part of a great lecture by Alex Neuman. He walked us through as well as clarified, what “digital” means. He talked about digital trends and the future, encouraging us to be the:

Builders of the future. 

A quote I’ll take with me and remind myself of. Never stagnate. Always learn and always see opportunities, or invent them.

A camera from back when. Will we be able to take photos with our eyes in a couple of years? Print a memory directly onto the screen? He who lives shall see.

A Lazy Happy Content Wreck


No Comments

Wow. What a week. I am too tired/hungover to write something even close to intelligent or reflective. But all and all, I could not be happier with how this week flourished into something ‘utterly brilliant I must say’! All my classies are amazing in their own way’s and the school is beyond anything I’ve ever experienced before.

After school yesterday we all roamed the streets to Systemet, bought food, went to Tantolunden, where we drank/laughed/got to know each other.

After a while the cells of 50 classies moved like one big organism to Skinnarviksberget. Where we spoke about cameras, photography, film-ideas and how to realize them, and then I was flushed with the emotion of finally being at home.

Some headed to Slakthuset whilst I and a bunch of fun fella’s headed to Marie Levau.

First Day of School – Hyper Island, Digital Media Creative

The Hyper Island Way Week

50 new faces, voices, energies 

150 new life stories 

10 hours 

Those numbers sums up my first day at Hyper Island. I was beyond excited last night and this morning. I got about three hours of interrupted sleep. The urge to start took over.

The excitement is even stronger now, to get going for real, but things have been  added to it, a kind of gratefulness/happiness/relief/curiosity-state. 

I’ve encountered a ridiculous amount of life-destinies today and I am eager to get to dive deep into each and every one of them.

What a journey we have embarked on, me and my classmates. Soul-journeys and the obvious learning-journey

The only picture I took from today:

My brain feels like a mashed potato and I’m going to try and wind down. It is a funny feeling to be completely and utterly psychologically drained and still not being able to calm the f down… 😀
