Also Starring

Telia Sonera commercial

Finland’s primary telephone and mobile company, Telia Sonera, commissioned production company Also Starring to film two TV commercials. Having worked with us in the past (on a commercial for Kotipizza) they knew we’d find them great locations and provide the production services they needed. They wanted locations ranging from the moon’s surface to a Caribbean beach, a Milan fashion catwalk to a Finnish café – we found them, and all within a one-hour drive of their hotel in Viareggio! We organized the logistics of the shoot: put together a highly professional English-speaking local crew, arranged equipment hire, and auditioned extras. Our local crew included a stylist for the costumes, and a hair and make-up artist for the celebrity talent from Finland. We managed the budget and negotiated access and film permits. And, of course, our bilingual crew and translation services helped all communication run smoothly!
