Announcing STARK’s most recent awards at the New York Festivals World’s Best TV & Films 2018. Against competition from over 40 countries, 4 Swedish companies were acknowledged including STARK Film. STARK received the Bronze World Medal in the category of business theatre for the Volvo Trucks VNR Brand Film and a Finalist Certificate in the category of event venue for the Volvo Trucks VNL Walk Around Exterior film.
STARK were in Amsterdam for the launch event of the highly anticipated Lynk & Co. 02. We documented the epic event including the reveal of the Lynk & Co. 02 amidst the dynamic performance action.
STARK was responsible for the film productions of the recently launched new Volvo Trucks VNX. Including the VNX teaser, the walk around exterior and the brand film. The STARK team travelled across North America, from late January to early February 2018, to carry out the location scouting and capture the concept footage.
STARK are excited to introduce a new member of our crew, Alexander Witkowski!
Alexander has made the big move from Stockholm to join us as Cinematographer and Editor. Alexander has a considerable background within the film industry, formerly in a corresponding position at production company Mandarin AB and previously Diggin Larry. At STARK we are all eager to begin working alongside Alexander on some inspiring upcoming projects for 2018!
Recently members of the STARK team travelled to China to document the Lynk & Co 01 sales launch in Ningbo. STARK Film spent the full three days documenting the entirety of the event's activities and happenings. Below is a teaser following the opening night equipped with dancers, djs and strobe lighting.
Last week Stark was involved in film production for the Jontefonden Gala fundraiser event, for children and adolescents awaiting or having previously received life-saving organ transplants. The Stark team met with two families that have been directly affected by illness, and received support from the Jontefonden organisation. Their stories were honoured through two touching films shown at Sunday’s event.
STARK welcomes Adam Gustafsson to the team!

SKF and Husqvarna’s design partnership highlights the success of close supplier and client relationships, in this Stark Film production. Husqvarna sought SKF’s service to enhance their next generation of handheld chainsaw equipment. In collaboration with engineers across both companies and countries, from Sweden and Italy, there was extensive research and testing completed to overcome many design challenges.

This is STARK’s most extensive film project ever produced. We worked closely with Volvo Trucks on the overall project and with agency Forsman & Bodenfors on certain films. Stay tuned, there’s more to come.
STARK would like to welcome our office newbies to the team. Introducing Jessica Loets and Georgia Hulse. Jessica Loets has joined Stark in the role of Film Producer. Jessica has widespread experience within the communications industry. Ranging from film producer at Bobby Digital Studios, to several years managing international accounts and marketing in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Georgia Hulse joins us all the way from Australia, as our native English Copywriter and Reporter. Georgia has a strong academic background in the area of journalism and corporate communication, including many years of professional freelance experience and creative talent.
A short 2-3-minute-long film can sometimes contain up to 4 Terabytes of digital raw material. That’s a lot to store so uploading that to the Cloud or to portable hard drives isn’t a realistic option today. STARK has been using a Media Asset Management system for several years now, one that stores huge amounts of data and provides instant access to a massive film archive. But now we’ve invested in a new and improved online MAM system - one where our customers can easily login and see their film material from anywhere in the world.
We’re expanding and want three creative, talented and experienced people to join our STARK film team. We produce films for Swedish and international companies, strengthening brands through powerful storytelling. Today those customers demand the best from us, so we’re also looking for the best. Could one of these be you?
STARK’s office will be closed from Friday, December 23rd until Monday, January 2nd. We’re taking a little time off to spend with our families and re-charge our batteries. Have a wonderful holiday and we’ll see you in 2017!
Uptime saves you more than just money. It saves your reputation and your business. Volvo Trucks Uptime Services is a suite of product and services designed to keep trucks where they should be - on the road. This is STARK’s story of Volvo Trucks Uptime.
It would be an understatement to say that we’re busy this fall! We have so many projects covering so many continents that it’s hard to keep track. We currently have teams filming in North America and Germany. In two weeks time, we’ll have teams spread out from Shanghai to Casablanca and Detroit to Sao Paulo.
