Cops 'n Robbers
Jannik Dahl Pedersen, Jan Warborg Hansen, 2012 | StrangerFestival / Doc Next Network (Denmark)
This movie was made by Danish duo Jannik Dahl Pedersen (born 1988) and Jan Warborg Hansen (1987). The project itself was created out of chaos and panic, because another project fell through, due to lack of actors. Four days and a lot of improvised dialogue later, the movie was done and ready to be sent on its maiden voyage to The Golden Egg, a Danish amateur film festival, where it ended up winning the Audience Choice award. The boys agreed right there that this wasn't the end of their moviemaking camraderie, but the beginning. They realised they had singlehandedly written, produced, directed, filmed and acted in something that genuinely made people laugh.
