Part of it is the thrill of watching something amazing happen in front of the camera and making it work as a cohesive story, another is being part of an effort that goes beyond the act of simply watching content, hopefully into the lives of an audience, challenging the way they perceive the world around them. My goal has always been finding the key that allows an audience to identify with fantastic stories as well as slice of life moments.
After almost 20 years as an editor I’ve put together a toolbox that I use to communicate with audience and creators alike. Editing, writing, mentoring, putting together story packages from early development to late stages: Whatever the goal, I’m committed to helping build the best film possible.
In the more recent past I’ve participated in documentary, pitch and trailer workshops from both sides of the table, with EDN and the Documentary campus in Berlin, Brussels and Leipzig. I’ve also been coaching film projects through post production under my own company, Bedouin Viking, and under the umbrella of BoostHBG, the Helsingborg based organization dedicated to developing transmedia in Skane county. The autumn of 2013 is packed with conferences across the globe, and film projects both new and ongoing.
