Born in Gothenburg, this half Swedish half Hungarian-aristocrat, Jakob went all the way to Australia to earn his stripes in the film industry.
Having spend his first 5 years directing as a part of the directors collective A.C.N.E. he moved on to Academy Films in London where he picked up a D&AD Pencil and 2 Cannes Lions for his ground-breaking social media/Facebook activity for Skittles. The follow up campaign was a huge hit too. The launch of the new blue coloured Skittle won another 2 Lions in Cannes.
After stirring up dust in Scandinavia with films for TRYG, Nordea and IKEA, Jakob topped 2012 with winning the "Ingmar Bergman Award" for best screenplay for his film "Fuga". Something that allowed him to spend time writing in the old masters writers den. The film is currently in preproduction.
