The cast of our next big feature film “The Serious Game” is now official.
Director Pernilla August announce that Sverrir Gudnason (“Gentlemen” & “Monica Z”) and Karin Franz Körlof (“Nobody Owns Me”) will co-star in the epic love story. The script, written by Danish Lone Scherfig (“Italian For Beginners” & “An Education”), is based on the classic Swedish novel from 1912 by Hjalmar Söderberg.
The award-winning director and social media creative Roye Segal joins B-Reel after an extensive run at MTV Networks, where he served as Director and Creative Director of MTV World from 2011 to early 2014. Roye most recently lensed commercials for AT&T in the first-of-its-kind, unscripted mobile series for social media.
“I’m very excited to be joining B-Reel,” says Segal. “As a storyteller using every film, digital and social tool available in my work, I am truly thrilled to be partnering with a thoroughly modern company that is constantly innovating at every level. B-Reel and I are tuned to the same creative frequency.”
“We’re thrilled to have signed Roye to our director roster,” says Michael McQuhae, Managing Director and Executive Producer at B-Reel. “He’s the perfect combination of filmmaker and digital creative.”
