Says BRW FILMLAND Los Angeles EP Gianfilippo Pedrotti, “We are proud to welcome such an accomplished director to our US roster. He brings mastery in performance direction, sophisticated aesthetics and understanding of comedy to our roster and we couldn’t be more excited to have him in our family.”
After earning a Film degree from NYU’s prestigious Tisch School of the Arts, Axel settled down in Stockholm, Sweden, and launched commercial production company Social Club with fellow director Henrik Lagercrantz in 2002. His international commercial work has earned honors from Cannes Lions, D&AD, Epica, LIA and Eurobest. Recently, he worked on a project for BYGGMAKER that followed the company’s history in film from the 1890s to present day, based on a variety of archived footage. Rather than shooting on digital and attempting to recreate the film look of different eras in post-production, he chose to film with the equipment of each era including crank-up cameras, 16mm, 35mm, reversal, positive and VHS.
