    Looking for 3 location for an upcoming commercial shoot in May. We are doing 3 films around following location/Situations:

    – Dog sledding in open wide landscape.
    – Mountain biking in mountains/grand landscape
    – Boat racing

    I have attached mood pictures. Important that we can find the actual people in area as well and do an extensive cast among “professionals” in that given sport.

    Please be so kind to only send by email and only if you have possibility to offer all three locations.
    Next week; please contact Henrik Berthelsen with CC

    Kind regards

    We should be able to chapter all three elements to your commercial in May. The board provided seem workable concepts for you to shoot in Alaska.

    We have extensive databases in casting and locations…

    Let me know what else you might need…

    Hi Trine,
    Unfortunately there is not likely to be any snow in NZ at that time of year. our winter months are July/August/September. Otherwise we could have easily done all those things here. What a shame the timing isn’t better!
    Good luck, and if you come later, please let us know.

    Hi Trine,

    Early May would be the perfect time for Western Norway. We have snow, dog sleds, as well as the coastal locations and grand mountain landscapes.

    I will send you more info on email. Attached photos are taken in the first two weeks of May – in the mountain plateaus there are still lots of snow, while closer to the coast the mountains are barren and green.

    You could find all three locations within a couple of hours drive.

    Hi Trine,

    We’re ready to welcome you to Canada. Dog sledding will still be a possibility in May on Baffin Island, for example. Mountain biking and boat racing are easily found within city limits of our major centres, and will be green and warm in Southern Canada that time of year.

    Direct flights from Europe to Canada, as well as direct flights from southern Canada to the North make access very simple. (4-7 hours from Europe; 3 hours north from Southern Canada).

    The low Canadian dollar trend makes it incredibly affordable and accessible, especially now.

    We are an experience production company and service provider; so we work with the many film commissions, jurisdictions and top crew positions to make for a seamless operation, no matter where in Canada.

    Let us know if we can put together a package for you.

    Please get in touch on +1 613 656-3624, or send us some more details of your requirements to:

    See you soon,


    Hi Trine,

    Canada would be a great option to service this project.

    Sailing & Mountain Biking would both be easily accessible in Vancouver/BC region. We would have to go further north for snow/dog sledding in May.

    I am happy to send location references along if you are interested.

    Partners Film has been serving commercial projects for over 30 years in Canada and it is a great time to shoot here as the current CAD is allowing for even higher production value.

    Thank you

    Hey Trine,

    We suggest you consider Canada as a great option to provide all your requested locations.

    Vancouver/BC is beautiful at that time of year. With world class trails, mountains, local islands, and fjords, biking and sailing are ideal in this region. Alpine and northern locations can offer you a wide range to showcase dog sledding, be it in the Yukon, Northwest Territories or Baffin Island.

    In addition to a myriad of available locations, Canada has some of the most skilled and experienced crew, competitive rates, and deep talent pools for you to cast from. The current CAD only makes this more accessible.

    Circle productions has been servicing top tier commercial productions for 30+ years. With a long list of credits, and numerous happy clients, you can trust us to provide you with a smooth production and reliable support in Canada. Please let us know if we can put together a proposal and locations site for you or your clients.

    Hi Trine

    As Treza mentioned earlier, it’s not extremely likely that there will be vast snow fields in New Zealand in May, but we’ll certainly be getting close. I’ve the other locations are New Zealand for sure! I’ve loaded some images for your reference onto a dropbox link, you can see them here.

    We should have pockets of snow and we do have pretty amazing SFX people here. If you’d like to discuss the possibilities of getting your shots in New Zealand, we’d be very happy to talk with you.

    Kind regards
