Fiction: Cereal Killer

A few years ago I wrote a 5-page script for a short film set in a 70s living room about a serial killer that drowns a sad man in a bowl of cereal. The story has been compressed down to a 1-page script and the storyboards have been drawn. Coming 2021.

Releasing my first music video

In May 2020, we started pre-production on my first music video. A great collaboration with the artist, Erlend Ødegård. We spent two weeks developing a concept and quickly decided not to go for a narrative. linear story. Instead we wanted to create conceptual scenes that could symbolize something that had to do with a tough heartbreak. Both of us had equal experiences with painful heartbreaks and that helped us create a personal, safe space to throw ideas around. Even bringing personal stories and twisting them into the scenes. The music video was released 28th of August same year.
