About Emil

I derive from an artistic family and have painted, played music, doing plays, concerts, shows, and written poems and stories since I was a little kid. My professionel career started after high school at one of the theatres of my home town where I worked as an Assistant Director on a couple of shows while falling in love with photography and film on the side. - Crafts I had no experience with and witch had not been a part of my childhood education. I soon moved to Copenhagen where I made a couple of short films in the very artiest of Arthouse styles. Today i still find them beautiful in their own ways, but if you want them to make any sense you probably need to do some magic mushrooms before watching. I decided that I needed some education and tools for storytelling, screenwriting and directing, went to Copenhagen Film & Photo School for half a year, made the obligatory shitty student film, but got a great set of tools and experiences with me. Done with school I needed some cash and got a job as a runner on a tv-series called Heartless. I worked my ass of for the shittiest salary I have ever had for two months, but it payed off and next thing I knew I was standing as 3rd AD at Susanne Biers "A Second Chance" starring Nicolaj Coster-Waldau. After that I did a couple more tv-series, worked as a 2nd AD then 1st AD, then tried out as Location Scout on another tv-series and quickly worked my way up to Location Manager. I have now been professionally in the movie business for 2 years and have worked on additional tv-series and a couple of films, shorts, commercials and music videos. I still work mostly as AD or Location Manager/Scout, but I am writing a lot on the side and hope to shoot my next short film starring Sebastian Jessen in October this year.
