The Danish production company Creative Alliance, which is run by Lone Scherfig, Ole Christian Madsen and Malene Blenkov, has entered into an exclusive agreement with Nordisk Film Production.
Blenkov will be in charge of the joint unit, Nordisk Film – Creative Alliance, which will function as a new department of Nordisk Film Production together with co-owners Scherfig and Madsen.
Creative Alliance was founded in 2013 and has credits, including Scherfig’s Stranger Kindness and Madsen’s The powder keg. It is currently in production on TV series The shift, which was created by Scherfig and directed by Søren Balle and Madsen.
“There is a great demand for high-quality productions, and Creative Alliance has within a few years developed a number of new projects, which we look forward to putting into production with a number of strong writers and directors. This collaboration gives us the opportunity to maintain our unique profile and at the same time borrow from Nordisk Film’s capacity and strength. We look forward to this shift and the synergies it will bring to be part of a larger organization. We see Nordisk Film as a magnificent Scandinavian, ambitious, creative community that we will enjoy contributing to, ”commented Malene Blenkov.
“I am very happy that Creative Alliance is now part of Nordisk Film Production. It is a perfect match that will further strengthen us as a creative powerhouse. We have a historically high and ambitious series of projects that span the Nordic region, where we strive to be the leading film and series producer. With Lone Scherfig, Ole Christian Madsen and Malene Blenkov on board, we get access to a number of exciting new projects, ”adds Henrik Zein, CEO of Nordisk Film Production.
