About Jeroen Mol
Everything, literally e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g, is an opportunity for absurdity with Jeroen Mol. Including this bio.
When asked for any fun info about himself, Jeroen’s answer was –
Which is an absurd answer, considering the wacky, loud, surreal, hilarious work from this one of a kind director. Always a playful provocateur, humor is intrinsic to his narratives. Jeroen’s off-the-wall, bizarre comedy is matched by his colourful, bombastic eye and superb skill for stand out, idiosyncratic character casting, making his films utterly unique and incredibly enjoyable.
Jeroen always wanted to be a commercial director. Inspired by the first Nike ads with Andre Agassi, drawn to their brash, bold, unapologetic approach, Jeroen graduated from the Amsterdam Film Academy with a Nike ad of his own. He then started his career making music videos. The classic German ‘love couple on the beach’ kind. (His words.)
Never one to be hemmed in by subject matter, his distinctly quirky style can stretch from playfully subversive McDonald’s commercial, to viral FIFA Street spot, to a hard hitting, Cannes Lion winning, emotive charity campaign for War Child. Proving that if you want to make a point, make it absurd. Jeroen prides himself on being very focused yet open minded, firmly believing that a relaxed mood and a sense of humor creates the perfect setting for a flow of creativity on set.
Oh. Hang on. Here’s some fun info: Jeroen collects 50’s cha-cha-cha songs with a male baritone who sings limericks. Whatever that means. Jeroen Mol really is one of a kind.
