LAUNCHED: Mavrick - Remedy

I got a call this summer from the amazing director and friend of mine Mauri Chifflét - "Hola amigo, how about stop chillin', I got a cool thing here in front of me". It was a music video for a new artist called Mavrick, and this was supposed to be his debut release. I got the song mailed to me and BAM!!
My old vice for drum'n'bass got me again and I was absolutely struck by the song. Me and Mauri decided to flex our muscles in this and really make something cool.
With a slim budget and everyone's working pro bono it's difficult to organize a music video shoot and nothing would have worked out at all without the stunning producer Alice Ängeby. With her way of steering a ship nothing ever happens that unnecessary takes time, she is simply the first person trying to solve whatever comes up, and that with a gentle smile. On two sunny days we quickly moved around between locations and worked our way forward in order to get as much variated shots as possible.

I'm also happy that I got to use my new steadicam for this film. I really like the flexibility and quickness of shooting from a steadicam, even though some of the limitations are hard to work around. I will never become a real steadicam operator for sure, but for these kind of shoots it's a really good benefit to know the basics of shooting from it. I'm so happy that everyone involved in this did such a great job, thanks to you all!

Currently in Israel

I'm currently in Israel, shooting a piece for Babel at Swedish Television. The most important things here is to use sun block for my skin and ND for the camera sensor. Another important thing is to not get the impulse of pulling the curly hair of the ortodox, it's hard but I sure do my best.

LAUNCHED: Gina Tricot - Mission collection

A couple of months ago I got a call from the uniquely talented still photographer Henrik Nielsen. He was supposed to shoot the main campaign for Gina Tricot and he needed a DoP for the film production. I've done films with Gina before but never a campaign so I accepted with a smile and we teamed up together! DDB was producing the entire shoot and they had the great taste of selecting the best model there is to find in Sweden, Frida Gustavsson, for the campaign.
We shot two films and this is numero uno.

LAUNCHED: Regissören - En film om Mai Zetterling

I'm proud to announce that the documentary that I've filmed for over two years finally has been released and screened on TV. The film goes by the name Regissören - En film om Mai Zetterling and is obviously a film about Mai Zetterling, the great Swedish film maker that directed classics suchs as Älskande par and Flickorna.
The film is directed by Lena Jordebo, and we go a long way back together. We have been traveling together to the US for years making short pieces for SVT's Babel and we have also been filming together on her documentary about Karl-Ove Knausgård. I love working with Lena, she's a very talented director and she gives me freedom and space to express her ideas visually. We have been filmling this documentary for about 2 years, meeting different people close to Mai, in France, England, Iceland and Sweden. The music is made by the very talented Lisa Holmqvist and the film is edited by the subtle genius Johan Bjerkner. It's rare that I find my footage being is such good care as in the hands of Mr Bjerkner.

When Lena presented the project for me I was surprised, Mai's film Nattlek from 1966 was a darling for me since I saw it on television in my teens. I had the DVD's of both Nattlek and Flickorna at home but still I didn't know to much about Mai at all, compared to the amount of information everyone shares about for instance Bergman or Widerberg. Mai Zetterling and her importance for Swedish film has without a doubt been increased thoughtout history, by critics, journalists and experts. This has been the consequence of being the first director in Sweden of another sex than male and it's so sad that this have led to a lack of knowledge about Mai Zetterling today.
Hopefully this documentary will make some change. See it, god damn!

See the film at SVT PLAY !

LAUNCHED: Spotify Business - Story Hotel

We all have Spotify running in our ears, on the bus, at home and at the gym. But Spotify is not only for private purpose, it's also a music providing service that restaurants, museums, shops etc uses to give their clients a custom-made selection of great music that fits their approach. This is called Spotify Business and the company behind is Soundtrack your Brand. For some time they've been uploading really interesting case interviews with cool companies that uses Spotify Business, but this time they wanted to do a film! And when it comes to films, it happens that I end up as the guy. (Lucky me!)
They wanted to make a neat little film about Story Hotel and their creative manager Chris Thompson and his and the hotel's approach to music. I got some help with the interview by Gavin Maycroft and during shoot I got a helping hand from my awesome friend Joakim Troue, but besides that I've been doing tutti baletti by my self. This kind of one man orchestra usually doesn't suit me to well, but in this case it was the only way to do it, and it was actually pretty fun to edit and grade it by yourself! To edit your own footage gives you a great knowledge as a DoP, a better idea of how your shots works in the post. And when always shooting in RAW or LOG it's pretty interesting to spend some hours to experiment in grade, something you never have the time to do at a post house.
The music in the film is provided by Ingrid, thank's a lot! Tomorrow there's a Ingrid-party at Story Hotel (the film will be screened), so come by and have a glass or two. I need to go to Norrköping for an art film shoot, so sadly I can't join.

The film was shot on a Sony F55 with Canon PL Cinema Zooms.

Music from the record label Ingrid

LAUNCHED: Robinson Title Sequence

Caramba! It's time for another release, and this time a romantic piece of action. As I have mentioned before, this winter I flew to Cambodia together with the director Mauri Chifflét and producer Måns Lorentzen to shoot the title sequence for the new reality show Robinson - Love edition! We ran in mud, dived with sharks and burned our foreheads off in the hot sun, but we also filmed some really cool footage and had a midnight beer in the moon light.

Director: Mauri Chifflét
DoP: Emil Klang
Producer: Måns Lorentzen
Production company: Lillasyster

Shot in Cambodia with a Sony F55 camera and with Canon PL 15,5-47mm / 30-105mm lenses

Rädsla urholkar själen at Stockholms Stadsteater

I am very happy to release the news that I'm back in the delicate world of fine arts, being involved in the making of another play for the theatre. A year ago I made all the creative visuals to Nico - Sphinx of Ice at Dramaten, and it was one of the most exciting jobs ever. The awesome director Nadja Weiss (currently present with the critically acclaimed Mannen utan minne at Dramaten) ask me to join the team for her next play, Fassbinder's Fear eats the soul (Rädsla urholkar själen). It is such a great and important film, I didn't hesitate for a second. I am making all the creative visuals for the play, and they have a pretty important role of the scenography. I was also asked to shoot the press photo for the play as well (very cool to work with such a star as Malin Ek) and I've seen that they're already printed it and that it's now covering the walls of Kulturhuset, Stockholm. The play will have it's premiere the 7th of May, and you can already buy tickers here!

Grueling art shoot

On sunday I shot one of the most important and interesting things ever, an art project by the magnificent artist Snövit Hedstierna. I don't know how much I can tell you about this project, so I better keep my mouth shut. It was a diffucult day, mentally, I filmed women that expressed tough parts of themselved. I was absolutely amazed by Snövit's way of working, letting time, space and workshops set the atmosphere of the day, and to film only when everything and everyone was emotionally prepared for it. I am very happy to be able to contribute to this project.
Thank you so much to all women this participated, to Snövit and Elena Sving, and also the crew behind, Elias Lindén, Andreas Hillerborg, Amrit Rosell and Sandrin. And a big thanks to Ljud & Bildmedia and Janne at Spring Studios for helping us out with this project.
