We're happy to see you.
Playgarden was established when 4 creative people ran into one another. Some met more than 20 years ago. Some met last year. Some flourishes with a youths naïve curiosity. Others carry the experience of a long run in the industry. But they could all agree on one thing – they wanted to create something. And they did.
Even before the company was formally established, Playgarden did their first shoots. Satisfied customers could see the 4 playmates use their skills and creativity to create their masterpieces. Some customers could proudly show their pictures to the world. Others have a necessary discretion in their way of work – with the vote of confidence in Playgarden.
Playgarden is still in its childhood. And the playmates know how to appreciate that. For they will continue to play and grow with Playgarden, and live through new challenges and adventures with everyone who wants to join them.
But first you may wonder what we usually do and what gear we have in stock.
Playgarden has 4 camera kits in-house. What kit we decide to use depends on what you want us to create for you. We have 2 kits built for EFP, ENG - reality kind of stuff, you know. We also have 2 full format kits, one with our precious Sony F-55 and a light one with a D800 paired with an SSD recorder.
The crew in Playgarden make their living producing television shows, and has done so for years. However, most of our projects for foreign clients are commission films, interviews and so on. No problem, we've got your back anyway.

DJI X5 RAW drone
This drone shoots aerial video up to true 4K RAW. We are licensed to fly commercially, and this friend will up the production value a lot. If you want to go bigger, you'd probably need a helicopter. Sometimes we fly those too.
For a quote with aerial video, please contact us. It's expensive to fly drones, but if we're making a complete product for you we'll do our best to give you a fair price for the whole package.
We're pals, you know.

Our crew has travelled the full lenght of this rugged country many times.
We've been in more or less every city. We know the scenic spots to give you the WOW, and the tactical shortcuts to solve the logistics in a reasonable and efficient way. So have no fear, friend. We'll make sure your adventure will be as smooth as possible.
Playgarden is Oslo based, but shoots in Trondheim, Bergen, Stavanger, Kristiansand and locations up to around 2 hours of driving from Oslo is usually a day trip - unless you want more.
These are some of the people we have enjoyed working with. Some of them likes secrets.

These are the usual fees practiced by Playgarden.
Making video can be expensive. But we promise that we'll give you your moneys worth. To give you a ballpark measurement, these are the basic fees we usually work with. But no shoot is identical to the previous one, so ship us a message and ask us for a more precise quote.
We include tripod, batteries, lenses, recording media and necessary lights for most conditions in the camera rate. So no uncomfortable surprises for you.
