First and foremost, I am a happy man as I have become a father to a lovely girl which we named Hilma Astrid Flora Kölle. I love her with all my heart. She was born the 19th of august.
I feel so grateful that I have had several projects running during this pandemic. I have kept on building my production company and developing a film with Swedish Film Institute. I have also been dipping my toes into the video game world (as always it’s a lot of secrecy so I cannot say any more about it right now) and started the work composing the music to the TV series Dystopia.
I have also had two feature film documentaries (as a film producer) in post-production. To oversee the work from our brilliant co workers have been a blast. One documentary is about a very dear subject to me = mental health among young people. The other is a music documentary about Sweden’s first true Glam rock band “Tears”.
Some of you might already know that I have produced a documentary about the Swedish artist Moneybrother (Anders Wendin), the Swedish director Titus Paar and the Swedish org. Ankarstiftelsen. The Foundation (Ankarstiftelsen) build schools in South America and help the poor and those in need. This great Project resulted in a feature documentary directed by Titus Paar, edited by Lars Gustafsson (in Austin Texas). The DoP Bratislav Stankovic captured some great fotage in the jungle and in Colombia overall.
This is a really emotional and warm film that I am proud of being a part of.
I also composed the Music to the film, together with Moneybrother.
