Your new movie Bakerman - in a few words, what is it about?


It's about a lonely baker who decides to settle some old debts.


What were your sources of inspiration when writing Bakerman? And to what extent can you identify with your lead character?


The main character is loosely based on my father.


To what extent can you identify with your lead character?


He is kind of lonely, not hip or cool and the world rejects him. He is confused. A lot of normal everyday folk can identify with that. 


If I'm not mistaken, Bakerman actually started life under the title White Pig quite some time ago [read our interview here] - so how has the project evolved over the years?


White Pig was too big of scope budget wise to shoot independently, so we took ONE CHARACTER and developed a movie around him - the Bakerman. 


With Bakerman being categorized as a thriller - how would you describe your approach to the thriller genre?


I see it more as a character piece. Although there is thrills but it's more about the Bakerman's universe.


What can you tell us about your directorial approach to your story at hand as such?


My approach is being open and try to use good ideas for the project. I love mood and atmosphere, interesting characters, even if they are dark. It's important to have a good bond with the actors and help them understand the characters and know where to go with them. Visually everything is planned out via shot lists with our cinematographers (Rasmus Leo and Nikolaj Lindblad) and production design is a high focus too. We have Eveline Dubronova, who is one of the best production designers I ever worked with.


Do talk about your key cast, and why exatly these people?


I was casting different Bakerman actors for over 3 years but when I met Mikkel Vadsholt, I said to myself, finally that's the Bakerman! It just clicked. Once Mikkel was on board, it was easy to get the others. We played actors against Mikkel; it took months and months but well worth it at the end.


What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


It was a nice atmosphere, playful to some extent but you are always fighting against TIME and also fighting against everyone else's schedules - so you can't just add another day. It needs planning. So it’s a good creative stress. Of course, I wish I had more time but you use what you have. We stopped the main production half ways through because Mikkel got a very bad case of influenza. That threw everything in the air but we managed to pull it together again. 


The $64-question of course, when and where will the film be released onto the general public?


In 2016 :-) 


Any future projects you'd like to share?


I have written over 10 feature scripts, a few dark comedies, so I would like to try my hand at one of them. But indie film is not easy, I'm used to doing it the hard way but then again, the movies we make are 100 % ours and not some huge studio's. Not even the big name directors own their own films, they are studio products.
