Director Biography - Robin Nystrom

Robin Nyström is a Swedish-born writer/director residing in Los Angeles, CA. He graduated from the Stockholm Film School in 2009.

He is the co-creator and host of "The Web Series Podcast" that features interviews with diverse filmmakers who are responsible for some of the best web series on the planet.

As a writer, Robin loves to explore absurdist comedy and magical realism. His first independently produced web series “Nicolife” follows a quirky, self-involved millennial hoping to find YouTube fame at any cost. He just wrapped post-production on his second web series “Tracy Buckles,” which depicts a young woman who becomes the victim of a despicable curse that prevents other people from hearing her voice.

Robin is currently at work on a feature film script inspired by his undying love for superhero origin stories.
