EAVE IMPACT looks to the future of Nordic TV’s golden age
- The fourth episode of the second season of EAVE IMPACT ONE-TO-ONE sees Nordisk Film & TV Fond CEO Petri Kemppinen and series expert Ossi Nishri engage in a fruitful discussion
In the fourth episode of the second season of EAVE IMPACT ONE-TO-ONE (see the news), the CEO of the Nordisk Film & TV Fond and former commissioning editor and head of the Youth department at the Finnish Broadcasting Company (YLE), Petri Kemppinen, and Israeli series expert, script editor and co-founder of Quiddity, a content company that specialises in high-quality TV series, Ossi Nishri, look to the future of Nordic television’s golden age and discuss the formatting of stories.
As the boom period of Nordic noir seemingly fades away, Kemppinen presents what else viewers can expect from those countries, other than crime series. Meanwhile, Nishri suggests that, in Europe in general, commissioning editors are not brave enough to change things that have proven successful and try new approaches, as they did at the beginning of the noir period. They also both attempt to clarify the role of other investors and industry players, as the increasing level of competition makes everyone more careful about defining what is meaningful for society. Finally, the big question to be answered is how a script editor can satisfy the demands of a broadcaster and bear in mind the needs of the audience at the same time.
