Arild started his career in NRK (The Norwegian Broadcaster). Recently graduated from Volda University College with a degree in TV- and documentary studies, it was a short way to NRK. In NRK he got the possibility to express himself creatively, and he took part in some of NRKs most successful humour-series ever.
This made the foundation for his humorous and playful narrative style. In 2005 he had his feature film debut with “Pitbullterje”. The film became a huge success. It won the prize for Best Children- and Youth Film during the Amanda Award (The Norwegian Oscar). Since then he has directed several feature films, among them “Doctor Proktor: Bubble in the bathtub”(2014), based on a novel by Jo Nesbø. The sequel will premiere in 2015.
Arilds humorous and playful style is also an important ingredient in his commercials, which are known for great charm and warmth.
