Episode 3 - Niclas Larsson - The Power of Naivete
Listen now
Niclas Larsson began his career as a child actor and now is one of the leading commercial directors in the world. The Swedish director linked with King She to talk about the gift of being naive early in a director's career, bringing a punk sensibility to commercial directing, and collaborating with clients to maximise artful output. Niclas shares many gems of insight from his robust career including how the foundation for it all is in the writing, how his early work as a child actor informs his directing today, and how to direct from a place of affirmation rather than critique.   Episode Mentions:    [https://newland.tv/]  Adam Berg [https://anorakfilm.com/directors/adam-berg/] The Carousel - Phillips [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JJyXryevxY] Erik Torrell [https://newland.tv/] Gustov Johansson [https://newland.tv/directors/gustav-johansson] Iconoclast [https://iconoclast.tv/us] Steven Spielberg [https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000229/] Romain Gavras [https://www.iconoclast.tv/us/romain-gavras] Mother Couch [https://abovetheline.com/2022/10/07/mother-couch-movie-taylor-russell-ewan-mcgregor-ellen-burstyn/] Ewan McGregor [https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000191/] Camp David [https://www.campdavidfilm.com/] Volvo - The Parents Commercial [https://vimeo.com/460189926] Whats App - One Ad [https://vimeo.com/659334960] Kasper Tuxen [https://luxartists.net/kasper-tuxen/] Linus Sandgren [https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0761874/] Rodrigo Prieto [https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0006509/] Evan Prosofsky [https://evanprosofsky.com/] Paul Thomas Anderson [https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000759/] Boogie Nights [https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118749/] Magnolia [https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0175880/] Taxi Driver [https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075314/] .  This episode is sponsored by Somesuch, Supreme Music, Bonaparte Films, UN.STUDIOS, and Cartel.
