Obsessed with movies from a young age, Spooner’s love of the medium brought him to the European Film College where he began his journey from the theatre seat to the director’s chair.

Joined by his high school friend Simon Bonde, he made two seasons of “P.I.S”, a spoof cop show, which became an instant classic on Danish television, and opened the door to the world of advertising.

Among the first commercial jobs was a long series of sitcom-tv-spots for Toyota which won several Arnold Prizes and positioned them as the go-to-guys when it came to directing comedy.

Their second series “The Man with the Golden Ears” hit it big on Danish television scoring four Danish TV awards for Best Script, Best Short Form Drama, Best Editing and Best Sound. It was also picked up by Fox TV Studios to be remade for the American market.

After having relocated to Los Angeles, Spooner is now back in Copenhagen where he works as a single entity. His clients include Ladbrokes, US Bank, United Arab Emirates, K-Mart and Nestlé just to mention af few. He also directs music videos for some of the biggest Scandinavian musical artists.

As a director, Spooner masters the ability to create a variety of fascinating universes enriched by his remarkable understanding of visual techniques, film history, his ability to use humor, and his great interpersonal skills.
