Anna Zackrisson joins the B-Reel Director’s roster for Sweden and the U.K.

Anna is not only this year's director of one of the most talked about and highly prestigious TV-series in Sweden, Julkalendern, she is now also signed to B-Reel!

We are thrilled to have her, especially after having closely followed her career from the time she was a director’s assistant to our very own Mikael Marcimain and globally renowned Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor, Soldier Spy). Zackrisson went on to dazzle us with her oddball novella film Headphone Silence back in 2009 and has continued to do so ever since.

For Anna it’s all about capturing that single moment that changes everything; that sudden shift from the mundane to the dramatic. Whether you label it drama or comedy, she says, is secondary.

Welcome, Anna.

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.”
