Borgen has caused quite a stir with its realistic portrayal of the lives of politicians, and the Danish drama has many parallels with British political life, making it essential viewing for Nordic Noir fans.
We love Law & Order at GVFilm and were excited to create a trailer and TV spot for the new crime procedural ‘Jo’ conceived by Law & Order mastermind René Balcer.
Jo takes the audience behind the scenes of Paris’ most iconic locations including; the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Catacombs and Place Vendôme as we follow Jean Reno as Jo St-Clair in his relentless pursuit of justice. Brilliant and brutal, St-Clair matches wits with pathological killers to solve a series of shocking murders.

On Sunday July 7th at BAFTA in London, Directors Daniel Poole and Giles Terera presented a cast and crew screening of ‘Muse Of Fire’. An entertaining and star studded documentary/road movie that explores the cult of ‘Shakespeare’ with contributions from Sir Ian McKellen, Ewan McGregor, Dame Judi Dench and more.
GVFilm have worked on the film from it’s inception, providing trailers, sizzles, teasers and finally taking on the edit of the film last year.
A shorter version of the documentary is due to be broadcast on BBC4 in October and the film is at festivals now.
We wish Dan and Giles all the best and hope to see ‘Muse Of Fire’ in cinemas soon.

We love a bit of Nordic Noir at GVFilm, so were chuffed to bits to edit the latest moody and atmospheric trailer for the hit TV series ‘The Killing’ which completes Sarah Lund’s journey into murder, intrigue and endless wooly jumpers. The trailer has been very well received with everyone wanting to ‘say goodbye’ to one of the best shows on TV.
We have just completed work on an International TV spot for the hit series Haven which is currently showing on the SyFy Channel.

Arrow Films recently turned to GVFILM to create a UK re-version of a trailer for ‘Oba: The Last Samurai’, now re-named ‘Battle of the Pacific’. GVFilm re-edited in HD, added new graphics and titles and commissioned an all new music track from ace composers at Radial TV.

A film based on real events at the end of WW2. The story focuses on Sakae Oba, a tenacious Japanese Captain nicknamed the Fox of Saipan and his loyalist soldiers’ continued use of guerrilla tactics against the might of the US army despite the Emperor having already surrendered. A beautiful study of Japanese psyche in the face of unthinkable defeat.
