Rakett Gets Lift-off

NORDIC indie production alliance the nice group has announced the re-launch of Limelight Film & TV as Rakett.

Nice group CEO Morten Aass says Rakett, which means rocket in English, is an apt one for a company that is “young, fast, bold and a distinct challenger to the heavyweight production groups that increasingly dominate the Nordic territories.”

Rakett is headed up producer and director Andreas Hjerto, who moved over to the nice group from Rubicon TV in May. Limelight Film & TV was founded in 2000 and became a part of the the nice group last year. Its creative legacy includes reality formats Charter Fever and Celebrity Babysitter.
