About Lars

I have experience in multiple formats of film including commercial, short-films, TV-drama and features. My body of work spans several genres including comedy, drama, action and documentary.

Although I'm both interested and well-versed in the technical aspects of editing, my biggest strength lies in the storytelling. The structure of the story and development of the characters is what drives me in every project no matter the size of the budget or the length of the running time.

Unique traits: I love the entire process of creating a film in the edit whether I'm sitting by myself for hours with a scene or hashing things out with the director and/or client. Even when I'm not in front of my screens and keyboard I carry the film with me, working on problems and how to make the story flow.
