Mog Grudd

Swedish documentary filmmaker and TV producer, devoted to Animals and Wildlife.

I’ve always been captivated by the mesmerizing world of animals and the enchantment of storytelling. My journey began at the tender age of 10 when I borrowed my dad’s Super 8 camera and created my very first wildlife short film. Inspired by the remarkable stories of Joan and Allan Root, my grandpa and I embarked on a unique project: crafting a special birdhouse complete with a door and a glass wall. This innovative sanctuary allowed me to film the enchanting garden birds as they nurtured their new families.

Two decades later, fate would have me cross paths with Joan Root herself, a heartwarming encounter as I filmed a Marabou Stork she had personally hand-reared.

In 1992, I enrolled in the Stockholm Film School, sowing the seeds of my passion for documentary filmmaking. A few years later, I ventured into reportage creation for the Swedish channel TV8, where I assumed the role of ’The Wildlife Reporter.’ Through this, I presented captivating stories about animals and the wonders of nature.

As the 90s drew to a close, I found myself producing wildlife reportages for the morning show on TV4, Sweden’s primary commercial TV network. In 2001, I launched my very first wildlife documentary series, primarily centered around my own sanctuary, Animal Island.

I was privileged to produce four seasons of the series, which earned prime-time slots and critical acclaim. The TV production also took me on exhilarating journeys to other countries, where I documented and contributed to wildlife conservation efforts. Notable destinations include:

Since then, my journey has led me to various roles, including producer, post/feature producer, senior editor, and photographer in numerous productions for Swedish television and various NGOs worldwide.
