Martin Ahlgren

Martin Ahlgren has been making movies since he was a teenager in Sweden with a Hi8 video camera and friends willing to be splattered in ketchup. Studies in cinematography at the School of Visual Arts in New York, where he shot just about any student film that would allow him, lead to a start in commercials and music videos. After spending a decade working on campaigns for major brands all over the world and on music videos for artists such as The Rolling Stones, Beyonce, and Kanye West, he moved into longer form storytelling with independent features and television. His recent credits include the Netflix shows Altered Carbon, House of Cards and Daredevil, as well as the pilot episodes for Blindspot on ABC and the new AMC show NOS4A2, which is currently in production. The summer of 2018 found him shooting into the never setting sun above the arctic circle in Norway on the feature film The Sunlit Night, which premiered in January 2019 at the Sundance Film Festival. He is currently working on the HBO mini-series The Plot Against America, based on the book by Philip Roth.
