Pulse Films has signed director Joanna Nordahl to its roster for UK representation across Commercials and Music Videos.
Nordahl is a Swedish film director dividing her time between London and Stockholm where she works on music videos, short films, documentaries and commercials as well as contemporary performance pieces.
In 2013-2015 she initiated and directed One Wish, an eight-episode documentary series for National Swedish Television (SVT). She has also collaborated with Norwegian contemporary choreographer Ludvig Daae, creating cinematic and interactive visuals for live performances. Their debut show MM (2011) recently passed the 100 gigs mark and has toured in eleven countries. The duo’s latest piece, Hyperfruit is currently touring internationally. The duo’s new multi-platform project, In Memoriam, is scheduled to premiere later this year.
In February 2016, she received a double Swedish Grammy nomination for Music Video of the Year, and took home the grand prize for writing/directing the short film "Nothing but a Heartbeat", a collaboration with pop act Say Lou Lou.
Her latest work includes films for the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (RFSU) #dearcondom as well as the music video for Tove Styrke’s single ‘Sway’.
Joanna Nordahl said: “I’m thrilled and honoured to be joining Pulse Films which has such an experienced team who have shown there’s a way of working successfully across the different film making platforms and who have produced some truly inspirational work. I can’t wait for this new chapter to begin :)”
James Sorton, MD of Commercials & Music Videos at Pulse Films said: "Joanna is a fearless director with great taste and an incredibly energy. She has a unique way with on-screen talent that enables her to get incredibly intimate, raw and often provocative performances. As a studio we always want to embrace multi-disciplinary talent and with work spanning Branded, Music and Non-Fiction Joanna exemplifies that philosophy."
