One of the site’s big improvements is the newly added Event Calendar where broadcasters can get a great deal of content inspiration. We'll be keeping this updated with profiles of upcoming events in Europe which our English-speaking crews intend to film. We can then promptly send you the footage (shot in NTSC or PAL) via satellite or ftp, either raw or as an edited package complete with script.
One major event in the pipeline is the FIFA Women's Football World Cup in Germany (June 25th - July 17th). Its stars aren't earning the 6 figure salaries of their male counterparts, but the profile of women's football is on the rise. And Germany is doing all it can to build up excitement about the soon approaching World Cup with nine cities preparing to host matches. Our home-base, Frankfurt is planning a spectacular multimedia light show on the River Main (Sat 25th June) along with much festivity leading up to the grand final (July 17th). We have camera crews ready to film and fixers currently planning the logistics so get in touch to arrange your footage now.

Eurovision, Sequins and Skype:
A few weekends ago we had three crews shooting in Dusseldorf for the BBC, ITV and Croation TV at the most loved and hated, but more importantly, most watched non-sporting event in history - Eurovision. We thought it was timely to catch up with one of our clients Stephen Oliver from Electric Pictures in Sydney, who recently finished his documentary 'The Secret History of the Eurovision Song Contest'.
Watch the interview about how Eurovision was used as a propaganda tool for post-war nation building and discussion about whether technologies like Skype will encroach on the business of professional camera operators here: http://www.cameracrewgermany.com/
The Film Location Guide is another great addition to our new site. Planning a shoot from abroad can be somewhat daunting. That’s why we’ve compiled helpful information for filming in European cities. You’ll find hints on what to expect weather-wise, emergency contacts, basic phrases, and even tips on the best local bars and regional dishes.
Don’t be deceived by our name – our crews are available throughout Europe (not just Germany) – you’ll find Film Location Guides for Amsterdam, Berlin, Cologne, Frankfurt, Helsinki, London, Paris, Rome and Zurich...with more cities to be added in the coming months here: http://www.cameracrewgermany.com/
