Martin Sandin is a writer/director. He holds a degree from the prestigious Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts and has worked with some of Sweden’s most well-known production houses.
Martin’s work in film typically leans towards drama and realism. When writing he’s drawn to subjects such as identify and confirmation and the great impact they have on modern society, asking the questions like; Why do we do the silly little things we do?
Together with fellow artists in Art & Poetic Justice he’s created a style called poetic justice. A way of visualizing the theme of the film and getting close to the true needs of the characters and their crumbling facades.
Foggy Days (short film, 2018)
“For me, Foggy Days is about the modern vanity and anxiety that creates gaps between people. The film explores what happens when the hunt for attention becomes the most important thing. All set in a digitally connected contemporary world where the Ego is everything.
It portrays lonely people who want to be loved in a world where everyone is terrified of being exposed. Where we desperately hide our shortcomings and mistakes and dream of experiencing something else. It's not about ourselves anymore, but how we look in the eyes of others."
