He has been AD for soap serials, assistant editor on the Norwegian film "schpaa", and working on numerous short-film projects. After studying film science at Lillehammer he was finally accepted at The Norwegian Film school. Where he also met his beautiful wife Cecilie.

His editing work on the feature films; "Loop", "Uno", "Pitbull Terje" and now his most challenging film "Den Brysomme mannen" has shown that Vidar has strong talent for the profession. His international break is not far away.
