Storytelling

Dramaturg is the Swedish word for what I do; I'm a consultant on story structure, working with film, television and novels. With an education in screenwriting and years of experience, I can get you the feedback and fixes you need to give your story the reach and impact it deserves. I also conduct seminars on the creative process, from big-picture story structure all the way down to teaching high school students how to operate a camera, and, more importantly, how to tell a good story.

Translation

Are you a Swedish person looking to connect with the outside world, or an entrepreneur venturing into the Swedish market? For half a decade I have provided top-quality translations between Swedish and English, and I can do the same for you - with a speed you won't get anywhere else! Just send me an email and I'll get you an estimate, and a finished text, faster than you thought possible.

Creation

My main website is awesomepedia.org, where I have been publishing films, comics and music since early 2008. Below is a showreel with glimpses from some of my personal video projects, and below that are links to a few of the things I've made over the years. You can also find me on various other corners on the internet: facebook, twitter, instagram, bandcamp, youtube, tumblr, soundcloud.

17 minute comedy about a couple of slackers who find a corpse on their couch.

Experimental music video, making the most of simple tricks and storytelling.

9 minute drama where an old classmate comes to visit Thea in her hospital bed.

Watching Me Watching You; a video art project on two interactive screens.

A high school adventure comic about a party in the woods that gets slightly out of hand.

Comics about looking for colour in a black and white world. And other nonsense.

Comedy podcast hosted with Anders Backlund. New episodes every Friday.
