Description: Copenhagen Distortion is "a celebration of streetlife & nightlife" orchestrating 150+ dancefloors hosted by 150+ local and international icons of streetlife and nightlife (people, shops, clubs, galleries, labels, magazines…). The characteristic Distortion atmosphere involves high-energy impulsive chaos with a strong "streetlife freedom" feel. The music selection is sharp and upfront: names like Hot Chip, Simian Mobile Disco, Spank Rock feat. Amanda Blank and Sebastien Tellier were booked for Distortion events before they had become underground heroes of international scope (see notable names & dates below). The festival has always been a Copenhagen leader in the field of using urban space and unusual locations: In the years 2005-2006 the festival started to focus strongly on outdoor street parties.
Role: In the beginning of june 2011 I joined a little team to make a promoting Distortion Trailer for 2012. With footage from all events, we tried to make a video which should show people the special atmosphere of this city festival.
