Martin Werner is one of Scandinavia’s most awarded and highly sought after directors.

He started his career in film as a 1st AD, moving into direction in 1994. He quickly became one of the most respected and loved directors in Denmark.

After setting up the now world-renowned Bacon Films in 2001, he started to shoot more international work, picking up awards in the US and across Europe. Awarded work includes commercials for Coca Cola, Audi, Carlsberg, Café Noir and DNB Bank campaign starring George Clooney. Working with a-listers seems to be a bit of a habit, as Martin has collaborated with Eva Longoria, Antonia Banderas and most recently Christopher Walken in a Jack & Jones campaign that has been winning awards all across Europe, notably the Grand Prix at Epica in November.

Martin is hard to pigeon-hole because he has mastered a wide spectrum of genres, from comedy and performance, to visual and cinematic work.
