Björn Jonas

My 2012 will be spent concentrating on projects that will strengthen my Portfolio on the creative side (photography, cinematography and directing).
I will also take some time to realize personal art-projects that has been brewing in the back of my mind for some time now.
That being said, i am still looking to eat occasionally during 2012 so if anyone is looking for a gaffer, editor or similar for freelance-project i may very well be up for that aswell ;)
