Growing up in a working-class neighborhood with few to no prospects in life he still knew from an early age that he wanted to be a filmmaker. By doing almost everything behind the camera for 13 years, his goal is set on becoming a master storyteller.
Joakim S. Hammond is a writer/director with 16 years of experience. Growing up in a working-class neighborhood without a father and few to no prospects in life he still knew from an early age that he wanted to be a filmmaker. Joakim started his production company within a month of graduating high school and after personally financing and producing two low-budget feature films he realized that maybe the big break wasn’t going to come overnight. So, he decided to move from his hometown Gothenburg and study tv production at a vocational school in Stockholm.
He has since developed multiple docu-series and freelanced as an editor and cinematographer on top of making multiple short films in different genres. By working his way up through almost all creative fields within the film medium, he’s working on becoming a master storyteller.
In 2016 Joakim got the chance to direct and co-write the sketch comedy series Thor-TV for Swedish television and his short film “A Friend of Dorothy” recently finished its 4-year festival run while taking home 3 awards. At the moment he’s studying a bachelor’s in applied social research at Stockholm University while also promoting his latest shorts “Dani”, a drama, and "The Rhythm of My Heart Tears me Apart", an experimental fusion between documentary and fiction.
