NICOLAI FUGLSIG (Director) is an award-winning film director
and photojournalist who made his feature film directorial debut on "12 Strong."
Born in Elsinore, Denmark, Fuglsig graduated from the Danish School of
Journalism and went on to become a staff photographer for the national newspaper
Politiken in Copenhagen. Soon after, Fuglsig took on a project to photograph a
previously untold nuclear disaster in the Russian village of Muslumovo. The book
created from the stunning images he captured brought him a 1999 ICP Infinity
Award in New York, a World Press Photo First Prize, and the Kodak prize for Best
Photographer Under 30.
From there, Fuglsig took his first step towards being a film director when he
was on assignment as a photojournalist during the War in Kosovo. After
purchasing a video camera at the airport, he shot and edited the footage from
his experience into a powerful 15-minute documentary titled "Return of the
Exiled," which aired on Danish National Television and screened in cinemas. A
much-coveted invitation to make a short film for Levi's soon followed, with
Fuglsig traveling to Haiti to shoot "Possessed Jeans," a viral video based on
authentic Voodoo practices.
Fuglsig has since won over 170 awards for his commercial directorial work,
including four Emmy nominations, taking home the award in 2013 for a Canon
commercial, and several Clios. He has also been honored by the Directors Guild
of America (DGA) for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Commercials, winning
the DGA Award in 2007 for multiple spots, including for JC Penney, Guinness and
Motorola, and again in 2014 for ads for FEMA and Guinness. His myriad commercial
credits also include award-winning spots for such notable companies as Nike,
Mercedes, Sony, Coca-Cola, Lexus, and Barclays.
