It felt great to see that the material we filmed in Afghanistan was used in a good way. Two longer reportage was made and used during a found raising TV broadcast gala.
See it here:
80 000 000 Swedish SEK was raised for different children project around the globe!
Did a quick turn around to DC to met an really interesting guy, Trita Parsi. He is from Iran but grow up in Sweden and now he has been working with Obama as an advisor in questions regarding the middle east. The assignment was from CSN to do a short mini documentary about him and his work!

A little bit strange to be back in a country were almost everything works from a country that many things are not work at all. I had the chance to met with a lot of kids with disability problems. A country that is hard to live in with no Disability it is nice to see that these kids get help from money abroad.
Client: SVT (Swedish Television)
Thanks for great work swedish afghanistan committee (SCA or SAK)

Filming for Systembolaget together with Populate AB and Christopher. Best way of filming, small crew and a lot of traveling time through Sweden 🙂
I have been 5 weeks in a short course in Visuell After Production on Uniart (Former DI) in Stockholm. It was sometime ago I spent time in lecture hall. I feel like I should try to have at least two courses per year to get some new input and learn some new things. You always need that!
Here is a school work, try to work with underexposed material from the URSA and trying some VFX stuff.
and it aint me 😉 Pantamera has been active educating young children and youth about recycling and this is the first step doing so in film and with a “mad” profesor. A fun and stressful recording 🙂

with updates… and that usally happens if you do not have anything to write or you have to much to do. And this time it´s been the later. So will post a couple of post here from London. Just finished a commercial shoot together with a great agency and a great photographer, “Up There Every Where” and Chris Tribelhorn. Had some great days in the Rex studio here in London. It is now a break for about a month and then we continue to work on the same job!
This is one of the first shoot I did with the camera. Most is filmed with the Ronin Gimbal.

We have been trying to document what is happening in this area now, at this present moment. It is not always easy for a westerner to understand the full history of this place, but one thing is for sure, people are having a hard time in many parts.
From a personal point of view it is interesting to see how your personal perspective change once you go to areas like this. You evaluate what is important and not. Sometimes you find your self stressed out because you are out of milk back home. Being here change that.
We been to two different parts of the extreme long front line that the peshmerga solider are guarding. On a place about 15 km from Mosul we arrived at some villages that just been retakend by the Peshmerga from IS or Dash, as they are called here. The ground was full of rubble and part of the dry landscape was still burning. It will be a long time before any people will be living here again. The roads are full of mines placed there by Dash and still the situation is uncertain.
The other frontline we visit had some but few volunteer fighters from Europe. There to fight Dash. When I ask them why do you go here. I got the answer “everybody can do something and giving a thumb up on Facebook isn’t enough to fight IS”. “If you can’t see what IS is doing and take action you are on the wrong side, few things are black and white in life, but this fight is”.
but he wouldn’t call him self a hero, but for me and many other people he did some great things! Here in Sweden you get payed to leave your cans and bottles, called “panta”, so they can be recycled. And Fredrik is using this to collect money to does who need it the most. The organisation and the agency behind the panta concept is Pantamera and they are celebrating “pant-heroes”. So I got the chance to work on the film that will describes Fredriks great work.
Been filming now with Ursa mini 4.6 for the second shoot, and must say I’m so far pleased with the result. I got the extension arms from cinnemill for the Ronin so now I run the Ursa with Vlock and it works like a charm!
Here is some pics from the URSA
