Another broken camera: Return from Kurdistan, 2016. Helsingør, Denmark .

Another decade into another century and life and work continue on projects that in some cases I started back in the 1990’s.
Projects that are still searching for closure of sorts in troubled times – as well as completion funding and an audience.
With that in mind, I’m planning a complete revamp of how this site operates as a living, changing digital platform….
In the meantime I wish you all peace and happiness in a troubled world.
And remember tough times need tough people!
I started-out making films as a teenager living on a council estate during the punk-era with a second-hand Super 8mm camera.

My first Super 8mm.

Ever since I’ve worked all-over the planet making films – and sometimes art – that tell stories about people and the wonderful, frightening, strange and very different worlds they inhabit.

Since 2013 I’ve been undergoing treatment for thyroid cancer which was possibly caused by exposure to something, somewhere out on one of my many assignments over the decades.
As a result a life-long observer has found himself becoming observed in a series of 170+ short films which are being developed into a long-form ‘pocket cinema’ project and digital platform: Sporene af en usynlig kugle  or The Legacy of an Invisible Bullet

Please contact me directly if you would like to see the work in progress, or want to find out more about the project.
Another long-term project that I’ve been filming since the end of the Balkan conflict is a film about a game that people play in-between life and death, called Minefield which is currently seeking completion funding.

From documentaries to hybrid feature films and concept-based shorts, I’m always open to talk about challenging projects or assignments and never close the door on a good idea, creative collaboration or original story.

A film-maker in search of a story, the Caucasus Region, 2002.

Critically acclaimed internationally as a video artist and BAFTA nominated as a film-maker, my work has screened world-wide and many of my films can be viewed on this website.
