Believe Media has signed Stockholm-based director Filip Tellander for representation in the U.S. and U.K. Perhaps best known for his extensive automotive work, Tellander also has demonstrated his storytelling prowess in spots for such clients as Nike and H&M, as well as music videos and short films.
Tellander worked his way up through the camera department, graduating to DP and then editor before turning to direction. He’s been directing commercials internationally for more than 10 years. His most recent project took him to Cuba, where he directed the new H&M Spring line for kids.
With Mercedes, Jeep, Lexus, and Fiat on his reel, Tellander joins a roster at Believe that is quite robust in the automotive market. In fact, his first project with the company was a Jeep spot for Leo Burnett Italy. (Tellander was earlier handled by B-Reel in the U.S.)
Tellander continues to be represented by Indio in Sweden and Quad in France.
