Swedish Director Robert Jitzmark was born and raised in the beautiful city of Gothenburg, located in Western Sweden.
After graduating from high school, he decided it was time to move to the big city (Stockholm) to study at RMI Berghs School of Communication where in 1995 he received a degree in marketing and scriptwriting. Whilst still a student at Berghs, he wrote, directed and produced ‘Toxic Demon Paint’ – a horror film that was well received and went on to win at the university’s Examination Awards Ceremony.
Longing to have more hands-on experience, Robert joined Petterson Åkerland as an assistant before moving to production company Mekano in late 1995. He stayed with Mekano for the next five years, working for clients such as Sprite, Snickers, Puma and Hyundai, for whom he created a campaign that received the International Andy Award in 2001 and was named ‘The Gayest Commercial of All Time’ by Gay.com and Planet Out.
In 2002, Robert co-founded the award-winning Camp David Film alongside five close colleagues and friends.
Since then, he has worked with celebrities like Snoop Dogg and Usain Bolt and footballers like Messi, Robben and Neymar. He has shot campaigns for Puma, IKEA, Sony PlayStation, Canal+, MTV and Mentos, BBC, California Lottery, Eurovision, Match.com, McDonalds, and Qatar Airways.
He has also worked with well-known brands like Peugeot, DHL and SMART and created celebrated campaigns for MINI.
His spots for Swedish Fish, produced by Hungry Man (US) won Gold at the ADC Festival in New York, and went on to win several Epica Awards. His campaign for the Elmsta Horror Festival has been lauded worldwide.
Robert is celebrated for his unique style of visual comedy. He currently lives in Stockholm.
