    Jimmy Olsson

    Jimmy was born in the south of Sweden in 1980 and moved to Stockholm 2004 where he is based today.
    He started to work with film in 2002 and have worked in almost every position there is behind the camera.
    He went to film school for two years in 2004 in Stockholm.
    Jimmy usually writes comedy or pretty dark drama, with a little bit of comedy in it. He is a chameleon and is comfortable with either or and he is strong making both genres.
    He is inspired by well written dialogue and strong realistic performances from actors.
    Jimmy likes to study and listen to people around him, capture the reality and give it a funny twist.
    He gets really inspired by filmmakers like Ingmar Bergman, Andrei Tarkovskij, Roy Andersson, Michael Haneke, Fassbinder, Dardenne brothers and many many more.
    He really likes to work close with people, getting to know them and he really likes to write dialogue. He prefers stories that focus on the human being, her inner self and her relations. Jimmy loves it when you can combine comedy and drama to get a more three-dimensional story and characters.
