SF Norge acquires majority share in Motion Blur
Subsidiary of Scandinavian major Svensk Filmindustri has acquired a 51% majority share in the Norwegian production entity.
SF Norge, a subsidiary of Scandinavian major Svensk Filmindustri, has acquired a 51% majority share in the Norwegian production entity Motion Blur, entering into a partnership with its co-owners Harald Zwart, Veslemøy Ruud Zwart, Espen Sandberg, Joachim Rønning and Espen Horn.
Motion Blur recently launched Motion Blur Film which will produce features for the Norwegian and the international market, and currently has three feature film projects in development.
Svensk Filmindustri will distribute the Motion Blur feature films on all media in the Nordic region as well as handling international sales.
Horn commented: “Motion Blur is mainly a commercial film production entity, but many of the directors and producers involved in the operation also have a great desire to make feature films. SF is a leading player in this field and the new partnership with them is a perfect match. We aim to be the most attractive commercial and feature film producer in Norway within 3-5 years. With SF on board we have every chance to achieve this, says Espen Horn.
“SF Norge has a long-standing partnership with Harald Zwart, Veslemøy Ruud Zwart and Espen Horn and I am very pleased to develop this relationship further. Motion Blur is a very exciting company with great potential and I am convinced that we will make a mark in the Norwegian film production community in the future. I am especially looking forward to be working with Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning, who without a doubt are two of the most talented and successful directors on the Nordic film scene today,” added Rasmus Ramstad [pictured], chairman of the board at SF Norge.
