Director

Jesper Ericstam

Jesper Ericstam's films find the humor and emotion in everyday life.

Jesper Ericstam's talent lies in his rare ability to find comedic gold in grounded, human moments.   Jesper meticulously plans and structures his storytelling, but when his finished films are viewed, they seem like spontaneous moments that have almost been captured by accident.

An innovative director both Stateside and in Europe, Ericstam has brought his vision to international campaigns for Nissan, Ikea, Netflix, Audi, Subaru and McDonald's.  Ericstam is one of the most awarded directors in the world, with multiple Cannes Lions and other top awards to his credit.  Almost all of his completed work has been recognized by Creativity and Shots.

A graduate of Sweden's prestigious Berghs School of Communication, Ericstam studied scriptwriting, and eventually turned to commercials in an effort to combine his many passions: "writing, photography, music, and people."

Jesper is creatively informed by the everyday, drawing inspiration from the loving family and friends that surround him.  Whether he is behind the camera composing meticulous visuals, or relaxing with his family in his old wooden house just outside of Stockholm, Jesper finds the extraordinary in seemingly ordinary moments.
