I filmed THE RED CHAPEL in NORTHKOREA and edited it into a feature doc that was awardet THE GRAND JURYS' WORLD DOCUMENTARY CINEMA PRIZE at THE SUNDANCE FILMFESTIVAL 2010.

New website with more info : DirectorRSJ.com

I'm now based in NYC where I'm currently directing and shooting branded content Music documentaries for TV and web including artists like Oh Land and Lukas Graham. Also trying to find time to continue my street series of CURBSIDE STORIES. It's called ASPHALT NYC and is now out on Network A: networka.com/shows/19/asphalt-nyc

Im a filmmaker in the sense that I Direct documentaries, shorter fictive stories like musicvideos, virals and ad's.
I tell stories with my camera and sometimes I shoot for other Directors too. I'll even edit the piece if I like it and think I can add to it.

Telling visual stories has been the perfect way of combining all my life long passions like music, travelling, skateboarding, art and photos into one media.

Working has taken me around the world a few times to places like: Northkorea, Haiti, Africa, Tunesia, Russia, The Gaza Strip,Canada, different parts of Europe and across the US a few times.
A lot of it had to do with comedy...does that make me a funny person? I donno, anyway...

I Have also Directed more than 20 musicvideos for Danish artists like:
Suspekt, L.O.C, U$O and Nephew.
In 2005 and 2007 some of them were awardet Danish hip hop video of the year like this one:

My career started by filming skateboarding and snowboarding around the early 90's and from those passions I later on developed my street series ASPHALT CPH - Now ASPHALT NYC. One of my goals is to keep developing that into a world wide organisation
( youtube.com/AsphaltCPH and on facebook: facebook.com/groups/ASPHALTNYC )

In general I'm quite a happy cat and because Im so generous feel free to post the hell out of my work if you like it.

I love my work and I hope you will too...enjoy!
