Torben Kjelstrup is a director with a love for poetic storytelling, nuanced humor and visual trickery.
Hailing form Denmark, Torben left his architectural background and turned his passion for film and photography into a career. Torben has directed films for brands such as Playstation and Nespresso.
His music video ‘Soy Yo’ for Bomba Estero has reached more than 35 million views on YouTube. The music video, written and directed by Torben, catapulted him onto the global stage. In 2017 Torben picked up a Latin Grammy nomination and a Young Directors Award at Cannes Lions.
“Torben brings a completely different visual language to the roster,” says Ben Davies (EP / Director of Development, Furlined). “Torben’s unique style and taste is exciting to me, I look forward to seeing what we will do together.”
"I'm very excited about Torben joining Furlined as I've been a huge fan ever since his Bomba Estero music video,” states Olly Chapman (Managing Director, Furlined UK). “As a storyteller Torben deftly injects his humour into his work with great performances and very smart visuals."
