Jacob Topen is an actor, writer, composer and filmmaker
Constantly in search of innovative ways of storytelling, he has a sophisticated, unique style and tackles each project with enthusiasm and passion. With a particular love for comedy, Jacob believes its power in film is underestimated.
He has collaborated with artistic individuals in the worlds of fashion, advertising and theatre in various creative roles. His own work is mystical and subversive, often with plenty of heart and humour.
