Independent production company Kanalstrasse was established 2008. From the beginning there was no particular plan, maybe that's why I have been part of projects I could never imagine.

Selected work

Almost went bankrupt on the search for a total stranger, just to find out what may happen when one break social rules and conventions.

Won a pitch competition and met former Pablo Escobar employees in Colombia in this production for Swedish network TV4.

The casting process is much easier when all you have to do is get a cut-out cardboard figure. Distributed on VOD and premiere at the Live at Heart festival.

A complete solo project, that initially started as an experiment that I wasn't even sure if I wanted to release.
