- NEW YORK
Director Emilie Thalund has signed with bicoastal production company Epoch Films for representation in the U.S. spanning commercials and branded content. This marks her first career representation in the American ad market. She continues to be handled by Bacon Films in Sweden, Denmark and Norway, and by Czar in the Netherlands.
Hailing from Copenhagen, Thalund achieved a master in Art & Architecture from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts but chose to pursue her love of film, characters and storytelling. She was hired as an assistant to Martin Werner, acclaimed director and founder of Bacon Films, which ultimately led to her own directing career.
A sensitive observer, a dreamer and a visually strong narrator, Thalund is interested in the stories of women and wants to lend her insights to those narratives.
She has won a Gold Screen in the Young Directors Awards at Cannes Lions with her film “Period” for the Passion Project. She was also recently named “Talent of the Year” within the Danish advertising industry.
Thalund and Epoch are represented in the West by Dexter Randazzo and Jonathan Logan at The Department of Sales; in the East by Tara Averill and John Robertson at Representation; and in the Midwest by Chris Brown and Nicole Feddock at Baer Brown Reps.
