I'm an advertising director and producer based in Oslo, Norway.
After running a production company for 5 years, I have transitioned to being a freelance director for TV ads. I also sell and produce smaller productions through my own production company. I also LOVE doing music videos, and after about 20 low budget productions I am ready to tackle some bigger stuff!
On the side, I love doing public speaking gigs, so I do quite a few lectures and presentations. I have a background as an Art Director for advertising that gives me a strong creative background, and helps me in my work as a director.
In the beginning of my career, I did everything from multi-camera, to music videos and documentation work for events. After 5 gruelling years of work I have learned everything from the technical aspect to videography, Final Cut Pro, After Effects and all sorts of small and big jobs on set. I also did ALOT of First Assistant Director work, and project management.
Recently i finished a course in production management at BI - Oslo Business School. So I am familiar and well versed in budgeting and project management, specially for advertising.
I travel quite alot, and love going new places. If anyone wants a music video and covers all expences, I will go anywhere in the world and make one ;)
