Urban Strom

Director and Motion Graphics

I started out as a flame artist at Mekaniken, a post house in Stockholm, Sweden working with famous Swedish directors like Jonas Akerlund and Adam Berg. In my spare time I was directing music videos and soon Mekaniken's sister company Mekano, at that time one of Sweden's biggest commercial production companies, discovered my talents and signed me as a director. I've since moved to the UK and directed videos for artists like Mary J Blige, Ronan Keating, Rachel Stevens among others.

A geek at heart, I have continued to be heavily involved in the post side of my work, and with the transition to digital workflows (RED etc) I have increasingly been asked to do post for other directors and production companies including Flynn Productions, Stamp Films and Partizan.

My technical experience as a senior Flame artist and my creative talents as a director of commercials and promos mean I can bring a useful combination of practical know-how and creative flair to any project I work on.
