MARTIN WERNER

Martin Werner started his career in film as a 1st AD, moving into directing in 1994, quickly became one of Scandinavia’s most awarded and respected directors.

After setting up the world-renowned Bacon Films in 2001, he started to shoot more international work, picking up awards in the US and across Europe.

Martin has won Grand Prix at New York Film Festivals, Grand Prix at Eurobest and Epica and several Lions in Cannes, including Gold for his Magnum spot “Be True to Your Pleasure”. His work includes commercials for Mercedes-Benz, Audi, VW, Lufthansa, IKEA and the awarded Jack & Jones campaign starring Christopher Walken.

Martin is difficult to label because he masters a wide range of genres, from comedy and performance to visual and cinematic films. The common denominator is the enthusiasm and professionalism that he dedicates to each film.
