SCOUTSHONOR! - BASED ON A TRUE STORY
Founder Søren Dahl: "Film and wildlife has always played leading roles in my life. I grew up in Fredericia, where I spend 5 years getting my boots dirty in the local scout troop, while studying Film Marketing. This combined my two passions and I couldn't dream that there was a job that could actually fit so perfectly to my hobbies. During my youth, I got one boot inside the film industry working as a runner, production assistant, extra coordinator, and location assistant on various productions. This gave me valuable insights into the routines and challenges on a film- and television production. I soon found out working as a location scout and location manager would be the ideal way to integrate my two halfs into my professional life – the lone rider and the team-player. Scoutshonor was born.
Today I have 17 years of experience managing productions of all sizes. The Killing, Borgen, The Commune, Klovn, Lykke-Per, Gentleman Jack, Amazing Race and The Bachelorette are some of the productions I have worked for. During the years, I have developed a sharp eye for red flags. Knowing what to look out for on set, predicting needs and challenges, making security a main priority, are all focus points while working for your production. If you need advice about permits, I know where to go and how to formulate the needed preparations. I also have great experience operating as a local producer, coordinating international productions with teams of 150 people. My motivation lies in creating well-managed and safe frames for your creative work to unfold within – in peaceful cooperation with the local area."
