This Danish dynamo has been scooping up advertising awards since he was a teenager.
Like many directors before him, Tore Frandsen got into directing through his role as an advertising creative. Starting as a runner at JWT in his teens, he had a habit of writing his own creative and littering the desks of executives in his department with his ideas. It paid off, earning him work on various campaigns and winning him a slew of awards, including a Cannes Lion, before the age of twenty.
A graduate of both The Danish Advertising School and the Copenhagen Film and Photo School, Tore’s had the opportunity to flex his creative muscles in both ideas and their actualisation, and he’s won accolades for both writing and directing. He even started his own production company, Fandango Film, before he caught the attention of Denmark’s biggest commercial company, BaconCPH.
Since then Tore has fleshed out his reel with work many genres and styles and now he’s chosen to partner with The Sweet Shop to manage his global career. It seems like he ticks all the boxes, so it'll be interesting to watch his global career progress.
