Hungryman has added award-winning director Axel Laubscher to their roster. Axel is an experienced director having worked in a number of countries and languages (of which he speaks four) and made both short films and commercials. He founded Swedish production company Social Club in 2002 and has won myriad awards from all around the world including a Cannes Golden Lion and Swedish Golden and Silver Eggs. A great storyteller with a unique sense of humour and love of working with actors, Axel's films blend emotion, cinematography and memorable performances.
Recently Axel has worked on a project for BYGGMAKKER that followed the company's history in film from the 1890s to the present day based on a variety of archived footage. Rather than shooting on digital and attempting to recreate the film look of different eras in post-production, Axel chose to film with the equipment of each era including crank-up cameras, 16mm, 35mm, reversal, positive and VHS. The project is a perfect example of the unique diversity and experience that Axel brings to all of his work.
