CRASH+SUES Signs Sven Shelgren
Sven Shelgren’s ability to conceptualize and produce inspired media content continues to draw him into long-form work. His recent feature documentary film, A Single Woman, premiered in a session of the US Congress, as well as being recognized with screenings at both the Smithsonian Institution and at the United Nations. It tells the true story of the first US Congresswoman and lifelong pacifist, Jeannette Rankin, and earned Shelgren an Exceptional Merit in Media Award, the highest honor presented by the National Women’s Political Caucus. His short film, My Husband’s Son, was honored as a festival selection in Edinburgh, London, Los Angeles, South by Southwest, and others, also garnering Best Actress for Kathleen Wilhoite at the Festival du Cinema de Paris.
“Once I had the delightful experience of working with CRASH+SUES as executive producer for Dektor Films back in 2001, Heidi and I became fast friends,” says Shelgren. “She’s built a high-end multi-disciplined creative resource for providing a blend of all formats of media content - from spots and broadcast to films and emerging media - in a collaborative environment driven by a team of talent that brings a fresh aesthetic and cutting-edge creative solutions to their work. It’s a business model that has no boundaries, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work together with such a talented team to make clients and collaborators all proud of the work we do together.”
