A best-in-class superteam of professionals like Bö’s wouldn’t be complete without its own origin story, in true superhero fashion. So we crafted one. Enjoy the legend of Bö – and if you’re feeling inspired, help us add to it.
Born in international waters, Bö had his first encounter with loss and tragedy at a very young age, when his beloved houseboat sunk into the Atlantic. Thankfully, Bö and his family were safe aboard their summer houseboat.
For his family, every road promised new adventures, and they kept living a nomadic life on land just as they had at sea.
He decided to break away from his family and find his own path. His first job was as a gas attendant, but that didn’t fulfill his need to write, so he started moonlighting as a fortune-cookie writer.
The unexpected happened while working at the pump: He got discovered and went on to become a world-renowned hand model – so much so that every mannequin hand is an exact replica of his. He started receiving fan mail and maintained a long-standing letter exchange with a stranger that knew more about him than anyone else.
An accident that shall remain a secret left him with a broken hand and scarred his career for life. Literally. Since his hands were no longer valuable, he decided to start from scratch. He found a classified ad looking for a male movie stand-in and went for it. He was a stoic observer of everything that happened on set, and realized the world behind the cameras was more fascinating than what happens in front of them.
This was the time to put everything he learned into practice. He began with some experimental exercises, in which he looked for different ways to communicate on camera, wondering what we see when there’s nothing to see. His series of clips shot with the lens cap on is all that’s left from this period.
