Chivas Regal VO

Here is a recent voice over for Chivas. They wanted a Clooney-esque Oceans 11 style. Unfortunately I could only get the clip without music, but I like the feel. Great working with Hobby Film!

Winter/Spring 2013 improv classes released!

Are you looking for an acting class in Stockholm? Are you looking to build confidence and charisma? Are you looking to have more fun and laugh more? Do you want to be more accepting of the present moment? Than you should take my improv class!

The great news is I will be teaching two different levels of improv next term, beginners and continuation. The continuation course is only open to people who have the equivalent of one full beginner’s course under their belt. The continuation class ends in a course show, and will explore short and long form improv techniques.

Action Impro

Action Impro, which was produced by Improvisation & Co., was one of the funnest shows I have ever been a part of. It was a dream of mine to combine the intensity of an action movie with the spontaneity of an improv show and see what happened. The cast trained hard on stage fighting moves with the guidance of the best of the best in Sweden, Stockholm’s stuntgruppen. It was exhilarating because stage fighting is usually so rehearsed and so precise, but we wanted to do it improvised, so we needed to find and comfort level to where we could fight well and be safe at the same time. The show was a success and we also brought it to the Chicago Improv festival in 2011.

It was amazing to work with the wonderful talents of Robert Weitz, Anders Petterqvist, Jenny Björk, My Gudmansdotter, Maria Olofson, Joakim Ahl, and Olov Häggmark.

Game Show Host

I got to host a pilot for a new game show yesterday with FridayTV in Stockholm. It was so much fun! I have hosted things before, but never a game show. It was like fulfilling some childhood dream I did not know I had.
