Egil Pedersen grew up in a small village far up north in Norway. He made his first films, Lego and clay animation, as an early teen with his father’s Super 8 film camera. He graduated from The Norwegian Film School in 2002. Before film school he has worked in a grocery store and the fish processing industry, served the military, and worked with puppet theater at a folk high school. After film school he has been developing different unique ways of eye-catching storytelling using absurd humour, disturbing moods, visual effects, majestic images and is always on the lookout for the next twisted idea. Egil is living in Jessheim, Norway.
