Nicolai Fuglsig (pronounced FUEL-see), is a film director and photojournalist. He graduated from the Danish School of Journalism. In 1999, his book on an untold nuclear disaster won the ICP Infinity Award in New York City and the World Press Photo First Prize, as well as the Kodak prize for Best Photographer Under 30.
While on assignment as a photographer in the Kosovo war, Fuglsig picked up directing as he recorded footage that eventually became a 15-minute documentary, “Return of the Exiled”. The film aired on Danish national television and was screened in Danish cinemas. Today, in addition to his commercial career, Fuglsig has a number of high concept movie projects in various stages of production, backed by major studios and independent financiers.
Fuglsig won the Gold Lion in the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival in June 2006, and the Grand Prix at the Midsummer Awards in London in July 2006, for his work on a Sony bravia commercial featuring 250,000 bouncing balls let loose on the largest hill in San Francisco (Filbert and Leavenworth).
