Asked what drew him to make this film, Andre Frostad Hansen said that as child he was inspired by the Norwegian strongman Torkel Ravndal, best known for his deadlifting ability. Later, Hansen said he made a film about Torkel Ravndal's life, and then he wrote a book about Ravndal following that. And since Svend had a gym five minutes from where Hansen lives, he said it became a natural progression to also do a film on Svend 'Viking' Karlsen - especially since "Svend is the only Norwegian ever to win the World's Strongest Man contest."

Not stumbling on his subject at random, strength is a passion for Andre Frostad Hansen, who told IronMind®, "I love to work out . . . ever since I was a little kid."
Stay tuned for more details.
