Wasa – The Untamed

This spring I got a job that was almost surreal in its awesomeness. Along with two friends, director Mauri Chifflét and producer Sara Lindblom,  I spend one week in Berlin and one week in Galicia in order to make some fantastic films for Wasa knäckebröd.

The films from Galicia focused on the guys behind the Swedish surf academy, Peter Sahlberg and Jens Holmer, their life choices, their inspiration and of course, their longing for Swedish hard bread. We stayed in a small village called Golma, close to Cedeira, literally in the remote Spanish country-side. It started out bad though, since my steadicam got stuck in Frankfurt and it took Lufthansa three days to find us in the middle of nowhere. Luckily, those days were devoted to location scouting, so it didn’t slow us down. We traveled around the area with Peter and Jens and the coolest local chic, Vicky, who helped us with everything, even the most delicate tasks, like eating percebes like a Spanish gentleman.

I had some very good help from the underwater operator Laurent Pujol, who made an amazing job early every morning with the boys. Gracias, por favor!

There are four films from Galicia, you can watch them all here.
I will update the films from Berlin soon.

I shot everything with an Alexa Mini and Master anamorphic lenses. Laurent used a Red Raven with a lens I can’t recall, but it gave the most beautiful flares. In the drone we mounted a Sony A7S II.

The post is done by The Line and the agency was Ingo. Thanks everybody involved and special thanks to Mauri and Sara and of course Social Club that made everything possible. <3

Svartsjön 2!

Big news from Sweden! I can confirm that I will be the DoP for the first 4 episodes of the second season of Svartsjön. I have worked with the preproduction full time since June and in a couple of weeks we’re ready for the first slates. My director is Richard Jarnhed, a senior storyteller out in the fingertips, and considering the current bromance we might get married by the end of the project.

I am happy to spend the upcoming months with this drama series, it is such an interesting story to visualise, with lots of moody mysterious moments, heart-pulsing hallucinations and severe sufferings in the sun. I can’t reveal to much of the story yet, but will surely keep you posted. This will more or less keep me busy until mid October.

The 4 last episodes will be directed by Per Simonsson and shot by Nicklas Karpaty. Lotta Westberg from Jarowskij is producing. See the first season for free here!

Cambodian

Three years ago I was in Cambodia filming with director Mauri Chifflét and producer Måns Lorentzen from Lillasyster. After the shoot I stayed in the country for another week and managed to grab a lot of interesting footage. There’s one major art project that I hopefully will make official next year, but I also shot a lot of small sequences that I had other ideas with. This is one of them and hopefully everything will be finalized one day, but for now, this is it.

It’s shot secretly on a Sony F55 that I had to hide in an American Apparel bag.

Interview!

The local newspaper in south-east Sweden, Barometern, just published an interview with me where I talk about the Ingmar Bergman-documentary, the feature film Rum 213 and some overall ideas and ambitions in my life as a DoP.
