ABOUT
Jeppe was born in the Disco Bay (Greenland) and raised in a little village in the north of Jutland (Denmark). His first film was a horror-movie shot on his dads VCR-cam called ‘The Axe-man’ featuring his little brothers and a lot of ketchup. But in his teens Jeppe left his budding horror-movie carreer to focus on playing music.

After a detour to the Danish School of Media and Journalism the mystery of filmmaking pulled him back in again. As a director-rookie Jeppe helped out his cousins band, The Good The Bad, with a low budget musicvideo about a girl taking advantage of a poor guitar.  Surprisingly the video became an instant ’blog buster’ and was nominated for various awards around the globe - among them'Best New Director' at Antville Awards. Since then Jeppe learned how to make film and has developed a story-telling style focusing on the details in the interpersonal drama told with both intimate and epic imagery.

Now working out of Copenhagen Jeppe puts his creative forces into music videos, commercials and short films.
