With more than 25 years of storytelling and film making experience on our team, we know what it takes to bring stories from ideation to the marked and what it takes to make projects grow to their best possible potential. We know how to navigate in artistic development processes and are thereby able to have a high outcome rate for our projects. We are a strong believer in the power of character driven stories and believe storytelling has the power to change lives and societies to the better, if we want them to.
We collaborate with writers and directors in creating the strongest packages for their inventions before we together take them to either the domestic or international marked.
We collaborate with film production companies in Denmark and co produce and co finance international productions.
We take part in sustainable film production and believe that sustainability starts in the development room. Sustainable film production means for us how we work with social sustainability, ecological sustainability and last but not least sustainable leadership.
