Tinkering several writing ideas, a new SF short story, a horror screenplay set in the northern part of Sweden in wintertime, as well as a family-oriented SF-saga I'm planning to test-read for my daughters, my harshest critics.

More can be found on YouTube. Busy catching up on all the movies I need to see before the Guldbagge voting process in December.

Some special skills I have developed over the years. I have edited several music videos and commercials in Final Cut, worked quite a bit with After Effects, allthough Im far from a pro, but I have composited digital backgrounds in handheld footage, done quite a lot of graphics and stuff. I have also done sound design and sound editing on several Decoy Film productions. I also draw and have done a lot of storyboards which got good reactions from friends and co-workers, which has led me to launch a sister web-page dedicated to this art: Fredrik Fahlman Storyboards
