12 STRONG - Official Trailer

12 STRONG

(3rd Unit Director and Creative Assistant to Director Nicolai Fuglsig)

​12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11; under the leadership of a new captain, the team must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban.

I worked as Nicolai Fuglsig's Creative Assistant on the war movie "12 Strong" produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (Black Hawk Down, Pirates of the Caribbean, Top Gun, etc.) and Black Label Media (Sicario) starring Chris Hemsworth and Michael Shannon. It was shot by Rasmus Videbæk (A Royal Affair, The Dark Tower).

On the movie, I worked closely with Nicolai and Rasmus through the pre-production and production, and I sat with Nicolai all the way through the edit.

During production, I was given the 3rd Unit to direct.
