VISION DENMARK is an industry cluster that will accelerate the visual storytelling and entertainment industry by bringing together producers and suppliers of creative technology.
Our vision is that in 10 years' time Danish business will be a global front runner in the development, use and export of digital visual solutions and that Denmark shall be one of the world's powerhouses – a Center of Digital Excellence – in creative business based on visual experiences and storytelling.
The gaming company Eddaheim had yet to celebrate its 1st birthday before the three partners had landed their first investment. We have spoken to Eddaheim about the path to private investment and storytelling across games and films.

"We have initiated the Vision Denmark alliance because we want to put Denmark on the world map. We will unite all Danish visual producers and connect them with other industries and with new technologies."
"At my company, we focus on developing sustainable film productions. Vision Denmark plays an important role in gathering and sharing experience between the few companies working for a more green film industry."
"My vision is that in 10-15 years, we will have built an industry worthy of the same recognition we receive for our Greentech and on our architecture. Now we need to create some framework conditions that can accelerate this because speed is of the essence. There are a lot of people around the world who are certainly having the same thoughts.”
"Denmark is in a very good position to capitalise on the digital revolution we face. We have both strong professional competencies in IT and programming and also outstanding creative competencies."
"There's plenty of business in it. Turnover on games have topped 100 billion USD per annum globally, and if we add the film industry on top of that, we will exceed 200 billion USD in revenue per annum. And that is a turnover, which increases by 8-9% year on year.”
"Vision Denmark can play an important role in breaking down the walls between the individual silo branches. Both in terms of facilitating the exchange of know-how and labour as well as contribution to closer cooperation."
