His style of both directing and editing his material is with a distinct feeling of presence. In case the script doesn’t require it, Niklas’ camera will most likely never be still – for real. Always moving, always thinking about new possible angles, Niklas is determined to walk the extra mile to make sure everything has been tried to make the current project the most successful – ever. And since Niklas edits his own material it also means that he’s very much into both writing scripts and adding twists to the stories he loves to tell.
