We create ideas, scripts, screenplays and manuscripts. Our creative writers include Ian Brodie and David John Smith, working closely with Per Ole Hagen and others to develop concepts - fact, fiction, fantasy.  Contact us to learn more about the projects in the pipeline.



Over the past century, the region that we now call the Wild Telemark has built up unique expertise geared to tackling – both normal – and extraordinary – practical situations. Visit Rjukan is your point of contact, and we can help you access this expertise that has been shown to be an advantage in large film productions.



The Wild Telemark will ensure that you and your team get the right information. We are ready to guide you to the highest peaks, the most extreme sub-arctic locations on the high mountain planes, to the waterfalls, the spectacular industry installations and important infrastructure.
