Kaspar Astrup Schröder

Director. Born 1979. Self-taught filmmaker, visual artist and designer. Editor on a number of fiction films, shorts and documentaries.

Schröder made his first long documentary with 'The Invention of Dr. Nakamats' (2009), a portrait of a Japanese inventor and excentric. 'Rent a Family Inc.' (2012) also centres on a Japanese phenomenon, about renting out stand-ins for special family or company events.

Among Schröder's other films are 'Big Time' (2017), a portrait of the internationally acclaimed Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, and 'Waiting for the Sun' (2017) about life in a Chinese orphanage.

In 2014, Schröder founded the Danish production company Good Company Pictures with the two directors Katrine Philp and Boris Benjamin Bertram and the two producers Katrine A. Sahlstrøm and Patricia Drati.
