Locations

When in need of a perfect location or a perfect person to handle one, you can turn to us. We are able to find new places and search for old ones or just take care of the arrangements and logistics for the shoot. Our locations team is efficient and always makes sure you’ll be able to return to the place later with another production, if needed. We are also experienced in planning and coordinating the transportation of your crew and equipment.

LOOKING FOR SOME EQUIPMENT TO RENT?

We’ve got a nice little selection of equipment for example for your catering, production and locations team. Check the lists from here and contact us for any other details.

Statement:

I have worked in film since graduating from upper secondary school and wouldn’t have had it any other way. Most of my studies and experience is based on working in production staff in the field. In future I hope to gain experience in different scale productions in Finland and abroad. As a working in part of a production crew I am also keen on developing my knowledge in technical and creative side of projects. I promise to maintain myself as a person who is open and eager to learn from the industry. I’m a teamplayer who always tries her best to make the team proud.
