While it's no longer possible to meet Thor Heyerdahl or Henrik Ibsen,
you will encounter the same visionary spirit and creativity that inspired
them as soon as you arrive in Norway.
The Norwegian landscape that turned Norwegians into Vikings, adventurers
and explorers, is breathtakingly spectacular. Add to this the incandescent
light of Norwegian summers and the vast snow-covered expanses of winter,
phenomena such as the Midnight Sun and the fascinating light show of the
aurora borealis, and you have a combination that makes Norway a setting
with the potential to really make your film stand out from the crowd.
Norway extends across 14 degrees of latitude, and measures 1.752 kilometers
from north to south. This means the country has a variation in landscape,
vegetation and climate seldom found elsewhere.
Norway is one of the few countries in the world where the distinctions
between the seasons are so clearly drawn. Yet in some parts of the country
you can experience winter and summer at the same time. This makes for
wonderful changes in the light conditions - from the northern lights of
winter to the eternal daylight of summer.
Norwegians are strongly bound to Norwegian nature and very proud of their
country. This also applies to professional film people, who are eager
to show you locations, the like of which you have never seen.
So why not let us know what you think you want, and we'll find you locations
you had no idea you were looking for.
Norwegian film people are renowned for their small, efficient and flexible
film teams working at top international level. The working environment
regulations for the film industry permit long workdays for shooting, which
means tighter (and more efficient) production schedules.
There is a good infrastructure and short distances from inner city areas
(neighbourhoods) to unpopulated wilderness, which saves valuable time
when changing location during filming.
You can film without permission in public areas. And if you need permission,
it is easy to obtain. The police and fire service are always willing to
assist during filming.
