“Farewell” is an emotional and visually mosaic of personal stories from across
the world that are connected to the piano driven melancholy of the track.
As people, we are scared to make changes. We are afraid of being alone. We are afraid
of not making money, so we do the same routines every day. We are risk adverse, but
when you dare to do something else, it is often the best decision in life.
The theme of change is a good thing in this epic spot for energy company Statoil when changing their name to Equinor. Embodied in different real people and moments as special as the birth of a child, director Christian Holm-Glad brings all feels.
Communications company, Telia, explores the idea that everything is better with music. Christian dove deep in shooting visuals of emotional relationships juxtaposed with individuality.
Together with a phycisist friend Christian Holm-Glad created and then directed this 8 x 30 minutes tv-series where the host puts his life on the line to proove the laws of physics. The series won the Norwegian Emmy ”Gullruten” and has been sold to various countries including the U.S.
This was Holm-Glad´s first true ”arts & science” project. A poetic journey thorugh the universe and the infinite. A 22 minute documentary that earned much acclaim from festivals including a Webby Awards honoree.
Master of atmospheric storytelling, Christian takes us on a journey through a free flowing and wild emotional journey.

In this Frankenstein-inspired video Holm-Glad takes Calvin Harris from loosing his blue teddy bear as a child to reconstructing it by pieces of girls he has kept captive in his dungeon. The song climbed to number 1 on the UK charts.
Norway is beautiful in the summer and in the winter, but what about the time in between? In this film for Visit Norway, Holm-Glad explores that time of gritty, grey and darkness in a playful and mysterious tone. On board he got Thorbjørn Harr from the HBO hit series «Vikings».
Stavanger Symphony Orchestra is “The Nordic Sound”. The Nordic Sound refers to where the orchestra is getting their inspiration from and the film is foremost about “Nordic freedom” – freedom to play, freedom to love, freedom to feel, freedom to do whatever you want to!
