Personal Profile

Jimmy Olsson

I was born in the south of Sweden in 1980 and moved to Stockholm 2004 where I am based today.
I started to work with film in 2002 and have worked in almost every position there is behind the camera.
When I write I usually write comedy or pretty dark drama, with a little bit of comedy in it.
I believe in the analogue way of working with film. I prefer that special effects happens in camera. Im inspired by well written dialogue and performances from actors who delivers very realistically.
I like to study and listen to people around me, capture the reality and give it a funny twist.
