About

Kasimir Högnäs is a young commercial and film director. His award winning commercials and brand films include such clients as: BMW, Philips, Onnibus and Pelastakaa Lapset Ry. 

Högnäs’ signature style: strong, character-driven narrative behind the imagery and being close to the subject, inspiring emotion and commitment amongst the viewers.

Beside commercials Högnäs has also directed fiction and documentary shorts as well as the 2nd season of the popular reality show “Kielletty Rakkaus”. 


“For me the most important thing in motion picture is the element of human connection and i always strive towards it. Wether it’s commercials, reality show or a documentary for me the key is finding the best element that the audience can relate and connect into.”


Högnäs has also worked in multiple feature films and tv-series as an assistant director. Recent years he has been focusing on international co-productions such as Bayoneta (MEX-FIN, filmed in Finland), It Came From the Desert (ENG-FIN, filmed in Spain) and the scandinavian version for the Finnish hit show “Black Widow” (DK-NOR-SWE-FIN, filmed in Finland). 

His strong background in production logistics and running the set has brought him a valuable skillset and understanding how productions work. 


“I’m pretty practical when it comes to directing. It’s no use to have great visions if you don’t know how to make them happen and can’t work with the budget and time given. So my approach is always based on realism.”


“When i’m not working i play with my little daughter, try to run regularly (on the road or parkouring) and enjoy the great city of Turku!”
