August´s work is defined by a very visual and emotional style with a cinematic pacing and strong art direction. Playing around with the contrast between the gritty and the perfect to create a strong tension in-between. The love for unnatural & dreamy elements shows in his direction of commercials, music videos and fashion film.

He has a multifaceted resumé with a background in both film- and visual communication, to advertising. Clients include worldwide brands such as Adidas, Nike, Xbox, and Mario Testino. He has two years experience working in London for McCann and LBi, and has been recognized in competitions such as Cannes Lions, Eurobest & D&AD.

His mixed background gives him a lot of different tools when directing and enables him to have a great understanding and ability to work with clients. His experience as a child actor for SVT and German Television also gives him a strong tool for personal direction.
