Director Biography

Eskild Krogh is a cinematographer, occasional director and general filmmaker who aims to conjure innovative and dynamic imagery that compliments the symbolism and essence of the story he captures. With several years of experience with short films, commercial films etc. Eskild thrives in a work environment where expectations are high and challenges are plentiful.

Eskild’s latest work include ‘Noumenon’, an experimental drama short film written by screenwriter Mads Zaar Riisberg. Noumenon was praised at filmfestivals and by EKKO filmmagazine for its unique way of telling a story almost purely through its imagery, ‘Lucid’; a thriller short film, starring Danish cult actor Kim Sønderholm.

Eskild is currently working on ‘The Night Circus’: a dark, Twin-Peaks-esque shortfilm, starring Kim Sønderholm, Eske Skafsgaard Hjorth and Camilla Fynbo. The film is planned to attend festivals from Q2 2016 and is scheduled for an online release in Q4 2016 / Q1 2017.
