Amnesty and ad agency IK Stockholm assigned me to direct a one minute film, with premiere in late may ´11 on Swedish Television, TV3 and TV4. The theme is "open your eyes to reality", an important message since violation against human rights happens as we speak - all over the planet. Many thanks to the fantastic crew working on this pro bono project: http://www.amnesty.se/engagera-dig/bli-medlem/ta-stallning/
This is a campaign I worked on for MTG.TV. They wanted an image piece which would reflect the slightly anarchic and subversive nature of TV6. The idea is based around everyday people who masquerade as superheros. They are all striving to make the world a little more awesome for everyone.

A short film by Magnus Renfors based on the music from Ane Brun's album "It all starts with One".
The Director for the whole project, Ane's long-standing video director Magnus Renfors, says of the venture:
"Ane's music is like a great ocean housed under the roof of a great old theater, where pictures are hung from the threads of the music shooting out, so it really does the job itself. That said, the images require a certain height at a substantively dramatic level, otherwise the music, sometimes so sublime and skin tingling, can rush over the head of the visual aspects. Ane and I have done stuff together since 2003 and already on the last album we talked about doing something bigger, more coherent, and this time it was really the one. "
"ONE", as the film is called, is a poetic tapestry incorporating various threads interwoven on several levels, integrating and complimenting Ane's delicately composed branches between hope, rage and grief.
The film is produced by Hobby Film Stockholm in cooperation with, among others, Riviera Post Production and Ljud & Bildmedia, with the theatre giant Ivar Wiklander appearing as the main character.
