DAVID F. SANDBERG (Director) was born in 1981 in Jonkoping,
Sweden, and fell in love with
film at a young age. In his late teens, he worked in a video store, which
allowed him to both delve
more deeply into his passion and save up money to buy his first camcorder. He
began making short
films and submitting them to festivals and this eventually led him to intern at
a local film center, Film
i Jonkopings lan.
Sandberg released his first short animated film, "For Barnen," on YouTube in
2006, which was
quickly followed by another animated short, "Vad Tyst Det Blev." This short went
on to win several
awards from the November Film Festival and, because of its success, led to job
offers and starting his
own company making commercials and shorts for various clients.
In 2009, Sandberg moved to Gothenburg, Sweden, and began collaborating with
of CL Film. In 2011, they finished their animated documentary TV series "Earth
Savers," which aired
in Sweden, Finland and Norway. Other projects include "Ladyboy," an experimental
mix of animation
and live action, and "Wallace," a VFX-filled tale of a bullied boy whose
drawings come to life.
In 2013, Sandberg realized he had slipped away from his original dream of
making horror and
sci-fi films and decided to begin making short horror films in his apartment
with his wife, Lotta Losten.
Their second short film, "Lights Out," became a viral hit with over 100 million
views and quickly began
making waves in Hollywood, where it was snatched up by New Line and Warner Bros.
film of the same name, directed by Sandberg and produced by James Wan, premiered
in 2016 and
was a box office hit.
Sandberg once again collaborated with New Line and James Wan on his second
"Annabelle: Creation," an installment in the successful "The Conjuring"
Creation" went on to make over $300 million at the worldwide box office.
Together with Losten, he continues to produce film and television projects
