As the snow poured down (does the snow pour?) I grabbed my camera, got rid of all the extra stuff (battery grip, zoom lens, lights), put on the ten year old 50mm lens and headed out to the archipelago.

It can be very relieving to go back to basics, and also limit your self to one focal length. To reframe you have to move your own body, and in the deep snow, with dogs moving all over the place, there’s simply no time for that. So it’s just up to quick decisions and a bit of luck.

And of course, you’re quite helped by such beautiful creatures.


A work in progress together with Alex Pacheco and Per Han. Will publish more when Alex has done some more on the editing side, but right now I just wanted to share a still from our recording session last night. Thanks to Mediemerah for the loan of the sweet Sony A7S2.

SJ Lucia 2016

My friends over at Mediemerah got the assignment to do a film for the SJ, the state owned railway company. And they wanted me to do the editing, grading and a short but complex fx-shot.

It was quite a challenge, the material where filmed guerilla style, with no chance for second takes. And on top of that, in a railway car! With a very short deadline me and the producer had to work very tightly together. And we pulled it off, with a couple of hours to spare.

The footage was filmed on a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. I edited in Premiere and did the grading and fx in After Effects (with the help of Magic Bullet Colorista IV).
