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
