This is EyeCandy. It’s a home for big industry names, before they’ve become big industry names. These directors make music videos, commercials, short films, social content and everything in between.
We’re thrilled to welcome the truly unique comedic talent of Gustav Sundström to the MindsEye roster.
Gustav hails from a tiny village in the middle of Sweden where he was raised on VHS tapes of semi-horror stories like Gremlins and Tremors. The influence of these films is evident in his work today in which he fuses classic storytelling with a hint of twisted magic and folklore. The extraordinary walks, sings and plays mystical panpipes amongst the ordinary in Gustav’s work.
His wonderful eye for casting populates these madcap worlds with brilliant, grounded characters, who take the absurd in their stride.
Gustav has established himself as an ingenious comedy force in Sweden, co-founding the award-winning production company Business Club Royale, producing work for an abundance of clients and making short films, such as the highly original ‘The Diamond’ which Gustav recently wrote and is currently entrancing viewers on the festival circuit.
Välkommen Gustav! We’re delighted to have him as part of the MindsEye team.
