Biscuit Filmworks UK has added director Olof Lindh to its roster. Lindh has earned international accolades for his compelling storytelling and was shortlisted for the Young Directors Award earlier this year. She shifts his UK representation to Biscuit from B-Reel Films (BRF) which continues to handle him in the U.S. and Scandinavia.
After studying at the Berghs School of Communication in Stockholm, Lindh cut his teeth on commercial shoots in Los Angeles before establishing a career as a director of commercials and music videos. In 2014 he received Sweden’s prestigious Kycklingstipendium award for top emerging creative talent. His 2016 award-winning tourism ad “This Is Sweden” went viral around the world, sharing poignant vignettes of the country’s unique qualities and receiving air time from New York to Istanbul. Lindh has also worked with top brands worldwide including Samsung, Spotify, Nike, H&M Group, and Gradifi. His making the aforementioned Young Directors Award shortlist was based on his work for Gradifi, among others.
“Olof has a keen eye for both the visual compositions and the emotional journeys that make for powerful storytelling,” said Rupert Reynolds-MacLean, managing director at Biscuit UK.
Lindh added, “I’ve had the great pleasure to get to know Rupert and the Biscuit team in recent months, and joining the Biscuit roster feels like the perfect fit. I’ve always admired Biscuit’s ability to curate a roster that’s at once elegant and downright funny. Joining Biscuit marks an exciting new chapter in my career and I couldn’t be happier to work with their talented team.”
