Since then we have produced and co-produced over 12 Feature Length Documentaries in addition to several short docs.

Our film HIDDEN LETTERS (2022) had its world premiere at Tribeca, won Best Documentary at Bergen IFF, and was shortlisted for The Academy Award (2023). As minority Co-Producer we have worked on films such as LIFE OF IVANNA (2021) and the Berlinale Winner MYANMAR DIARIES (2022)


Ten Thousand Images is located on the beautiful peninsula Nesodden, a 20-minute ferry-ride from downtown Oslo, Norway. The name, however, has been in use for over 20 years as Mette’s editing business.

It comes from the chinese 万像 (10000 Images) – one of several translations for just that – editing.

We work mainly with international documentary films, but we are also developing short and long-form fiction. We work locally as well as globally, and we make commissioned films on themes that we can relate to, in order to build a stabile economy within the company. We have a special place for any audio-visual work related to marine conservation, and have a close collaboration with Project Moken.

All in all – we are a multifaceted company where our main objective is to work with our passion to make a difference. We like to think of our name in a larger context based on the old idiom 森羅 万象 – making change as part of all things in the universe.
