hailing from stockholm by way of brooklyn, Max Stenström is a filmmaker who creates high-impact, unscripted and experimental videos. His award-winning original concepts have generated 200+ million organic YouTube views (and counting!) for collaborating brands and artists.

After honing his craft at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, Max moved into creative development and direction at Condé Nast, pitching and piloting original digital series across their full collection of brands. He was the lead creative on dozens of original video concepts, breaking new ground for a company with a storied cultural footprint.

For Vanity Fair, he directed and developed the prestige Slow Zoom interview series, in which celebrities get vulnerable about their lives and careers, earning him a Golden Telly award for Directing and an average of 1.8 million viewers across subsequent episodes. His interview with Billie Eilish skyrocketed to 4 million views and was parodied by Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

For Epicurious, he created the irreverent "How to Slice Every Fruit," the highest performing fruit video on the internet with 30 million views. For Vogue, he created Deconstructed, where up-and-coming fashion designers AREA take apart an intricately constructed couture garment stitch by stitch.

In 2019, he collaborated with legendary visual artist Robert Longo on the film Icarus Rising, which Garage Magazine called "a beastly, underwater roar"— now in collection at the Whitney Museum of American Art & the Hall Art Foundation in Holle, Germany.
