Hej! Happy Halloween!

So, last week we got this tweet from Raindance Film Festival asking us to be a part of their 14 second horror film competition.
Earlier people had sent links to us about a 6 seconds horror film competition but we thought that was just way too short to build up some tension. But 14 seconds, hey, that's more than double the time and maybe it would be cool to make something super quick and fun.
So we did!
Such a sad story! The tears are actually real tears of sadness, and the onion I had thought of using to get the tears flowing lay untouched in the kitchen. The rest of the evening I felt all drained. Like I had been crying for real reasons.
David has been on a roll lately creating awesome behind the scenes videos and he even did one for this super short film. You can see it here.
Earlier in the week David made a video about how he creates the sounds for our films, and I think it is so fun and interesting!
One thing we realised when talking about the sounds he has recorded was that I have taken photos of him on many, many of those occasions. You can see a bunch of them in the video. After it was uploaded I even found a few more. Like this one:
My favourite photos of David recording sounds are the one with the sheep in the video thumbnail and the one where he chases a hen with the microphone. It's just so funny! Sadly I couldn't find the photo where he's interviewing some cows in a meadow so you'll just have to imagine that for yourself.
And a couple of days ago I decided to make a little video on how to pronounce my name (and how NOT to) since that has turned out to be a real struggle for people outside of Scandinavia.
It is quite hard to blend it into english, so I definitely understand. It just doesn't sound the way it does when speaking in Swedish. David is getting real good at it in his Behind the scenes videos though so I'm thinking it's all about practice.
So let's start practicing, okay! :-)

Oh! And today we found out that Lights Out won the Audience Award in the RoughCuts short film event. Yay!
That's a good way to start the weekend.

Hope you are having a great Halloween! I am spending the entire weekend with Teater Esther since it's only one week left until opening night! So exciting!
If you're in the Gothenburg area and plan to come see Perfect Life AB it is high time to get your tickets. Opening night is almost sold out!
Read more about the shows on the facebook event.

Talk to you soon!

Hej!

In time for Halloween David and I thought it'd be appropriate for a new scary short!
This one centers around the coffer that I got from the parents of my dear friend Lisa. They were going to throw it out. They had no space for it, they said.
Now I wonder...
And here it is! We hope you like it!
And to all of you wondering why I still live in this haunted place I will say this: No ghost is gonna control my life! I'm not the one who should move - they are!

It's time for me to release what is This Growing Collection!
I have worked so long and hard on this and I'm so happy to finally be able to show you all!
This Growing Collection is the name of my collection of leaf necklace pendants inspired by nature's very own jewelry pieces.
As the name suggests, this collection is growing; more leaves will join in and every single one of them will be absolutely one of a kind. Like every single leaf ever grown.

Directed, sung and performed by Lotta Losten.
Filmed and edited by David F. Sandberg.
When I started working on This Growing Collection I got the idea of making a little video for the release. A little glimpse into how I see the work that I do.
And also, I've come to realise that all my creative sides mash together and that is how I want it to be. This little video is a combination of many things I love to do.
And you get to hear me sing.
I admit, I'm a bit nervous about that because it's something I've been wanting to do for a long time. Not sing per se, because that I've done all my life (both in shows and in my shower), but put my singing in video form on the internet just for the joy of it. I've never done that before.
I very much hope you like it.
And here are some photos from my photoshoot with the wonderful Ida-Lisa.
Model: Ida-Lisa Lundqvist

You'll find all these leaves, and many more, in my etsy shop and, as I mentioned earlier, more will come over the weeks.
I'm also open for custom orders if you see a leaf in the right shape but wrong colour, or if you want beads on a leaf that are without them. Just send me a convo on etsy or email me at lottalosten@gmail.com and I'll make the perfect leaf for you.
This Growing Collection is officially RELEASED!

Happy dancing

Hej!
We are in a creative flow like no other!
Today David and I uploaded a new little horror short, and let me tell you, I am so incredibly proud of this one! We are both in this little film, so you get to see a little bit of David this time too!
It's quite different from our previous films in the Apartment trilogy but not less scary. Just different.
It's called Not so fast and it's not even two minutes long.

I think it's awesome, If I may say so myself, and I hope you think so too!
As usual David and I made the movie without any other people involved. That makes for some really interesting behind the scenes clips, so we thought we'd show you exactly how it looked when we filmed this, just the two of us.
This also explains really well how David made all the lights and equipment we used to make this film. Really worth the watch!


I hope you enjoy the fruits of our creative flow!
See you soon.

Tjingeling!
