I was born in 1974 in Aarhus, Denmark. I went to public school in the Aarhus neighborhood of Risskov and trained to become an electrician at Aarhus Tech (known then as Aarhus Technical School) from 1990-1994. My training continued at Copenhagen Technical College from 1997-2001, specializing in film and TV production, earning me the title of AV assistant.
In 1997, I started an apprenticeship as a producer and director at the Danish entertainment company Nordisk Film, which is one of the oldest film studios in the world. I completed the apprenticeship in 2001 and continued working for Nordisk Film until 2005. While I was there, I started directing studio-based entertainment shows such as the popular evening talk show Go’Aften Danmark for Danish national television network, TV 2.
In 2005, I formed my own company, Lundfilm ApS, specializing in multi-camera productions and directing everything from talk shows to large-scale live events.
I have directed four seasons of Danish X Factor (2010-2013), including the 2011 final, which took place at Parken, the Danish national stadium, and featured two performances by Take That. It was witnessed by more than 40,000 people and was the biggest X Factor final anywhere in the world at the time. Through my work for X Factor, I have also directed performances by artists such as Aqua (in 2010) and Lukas Graham (in 2012).
In 2014, when the Eurovision Song Contest took place in Denmark, I was the multi-camera director of the show, and I scripted all performances. For this production, I spearheaded the use of automation software CuePilot. My work for Eurovision Song Contest also includes being the director of the Kiev production in 2017, where I also scripted all performances, and the Portugal production in 2018, for which I was senior multi-camera director.
In Denmark, I have been the director of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix – the annual music competition that determines the country's representative for the Eurovision Song Contest – in 2012, 2013, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020. The latter took place at Royal Arena in Copenhagen without an audience due to the COVID-19 crisis.
I have also been the director of four seasons of Danmark Har Talent, which is Denmark’s version of the Got Talent franchise, in 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019. Additionally, I directed P3 Guld, an annual music award show in Denmark produced and transmitted by DR, the Danish Broadcasting Corporation, in 2016 and 2017, including performances by MØ and The Minds of 99. I have also directed the 2020 and 2021 editions of the Danish Music Awards.
Every year since 2009, I have been the director of the annual sports gala show Sport, also produced and transmitted by DR, and it has featured performances by artists such as Kylie Minogue and Lukas Graham.
Regardless of whether I am working with the biggest names in the business or aspiring talents, I always focus on the substance of the performance – creating a captivating visual experience that multiplies the impact of the music being performed.
As the head of my own company, I have an international network of professional partners to draw from. This ensures that I always delivers results of the most exquisite quality.
