Cast, Crew & Equipment
Unions exist but they are not strong so rates are negotiable. Denmark has a good pool of local directors, directors of photography and stills photographers. Copenhagen has a good depth of internationally experienced key and supporting crews that speak fluent English. Denmark’s close proximity to other major European production centres allows easy access to those technical and creative crews should you ever need to look further. Most citizens are ethnically Danish with some multicultural looks also available. The overall population is small but additional talent can easily be sourced from larger surrounding European production centres.
Denmark has a good depth and standard of locally available camera, grip and lighting equipment. Specialised equipment including car kits and heli-mounts are available locally. Gear can be rented from Twentyfourseven, Filmgear and Kameraudlejningen. Some specialized equipment needs to be brought in from abroad such as the Russian Arm. Denmark is an ATA carnet member country.
