    This is Klaus Heydemann @ Inland Production Services Oy. I recommend you contact Heikki Tönkyrä in Lapland.His number is: +358 40 55 64 157.

    He is the best fixer there and has just moved to town Muonio, so he is located in the very CENTER POINT of Lapland now. :-D He is good and hard working and super well connected and reliable and …fun. easy to recommend.

    If you need a production co. to administarte your shoot efforts in Finland (incl. Lapland) we will be glad to help.

    All the best
