Born in Bergsjon, a suburb north of Gothenburg, Marcus knew from a very early age that he wanted nothing else but to direct moving images.
In 2007 he graduated in film and direction from Gothenburg University and that same year won a Kodak Cinematography Award. His music videos have since been nominated for 4 Swedish Grammy’s and his promo for The Tough Alliance’s “Silly Crime’s” was featured on Pitchfork’s list of The Top 50 Music videos of the 2000s. CEO Come with Me was also selected as a Pitchfork best video of 2010.
Marcus has gone on to work with artists like The XX, Miike Snow and Fibes, Oh Fibes. He has an ability to inject emotion into practically anything, be it a brick wall or a new born baby.
As well as an eclectic mix of music videos, Marcus has shot commercials for McLaren, Volvo, The BBC, Rubio's, Vodafone, Avis, Kuoni, Persil and most recently a continuation of the Canon 'Come & See' campaign and a film for Turkish Air.
Thanks to a strong showing in both 2014 and 2015, Campaign Magazine voted Marcus one of the top 10 directors two years running in their Annual.
