CV/Resume



About:


- I am a storyteller, director, animater, and a graphic novel artist who likes to create stories that are good, imaginative and experimenting. I want to push the 2d media and love to dig into fantasy universes that are original. I directed the bachelor movie The Reward with my co-director Kenneth Ladekjaer, and now we are developing the project further with our partner Bo Juhl in our company Sun Creature Studio.
