Robert Nylund studied Art Science and Cosmology at the University of Stockholm whilst making his way into the world of directing as a freelance director’s assistant for commercials, music videos, feature films and short films. Reaching the position of director himself at Stockholm’s Social Club production agency in 2004, Robert quickly made himself known to the Swedish industry. In 2005 he was the only candidate to be doubly nominated at Cannes in the young directors awards category and by 2006 he was singled out as the new face to watch by Swedish industry magazine Resume. Since then Robert has won a myriad of awards in New York Festivals, Epica, Cresta, Spotlight and a host of others for his international work.
Robert’s recent work for Jobsintown has earned particular acclaim with awards at Spotlight, Klappe, New York Festivals, ADC, Prague International Festival, Epica, Eurobest and a gold at Cresta. The film’s atmospheric, cinematic approach and distinct comic style is typical of Robert’s ability to both craft beautifully photographic films and to draw out the humour of the human experience, explaining both the success of this, and all of his work.
