Jeppe Rønde

Jeppe Ronde has directed feature films, commercials and documentaries since graduating from the University of Copenhagen in 2002.

His debut feature, ‘Jerusalem My Love’ won countless international prizes and his second, ‘The Swenkas’ won Jeppe the best International director award at the Toronto Film Festival. He’s won several ‘Roberts’ (which are the Danish equivalent of the Oscars) for his tv and feature length documentary work.

In commercials, Jeppe was voted the top director in Denmark in 2010, and at the Cannes Ad Festival in 2013, he won a Gold Lion for Best Direction, plus a bronze for cinematography for Come4 ‘The Lover’, a seemingly seedy look at one man's obsession with sex and prostitution, with a twist.

An interesting spot for French tutoring service Acadomia sees an English boy - George - telling us he has a power. It makes him travel through time... enter other people's heads... and to see the beginnings of things. Visually, this is sumptuous; but because it builds our expectations so much, we wish there was more of a flourish at the end.
