I'm looking to book a small (2 or 3 people) video crew to shoot some Olympic Bobsledders near Konigssee, Germany during mid-January. I realize that that's not much lead time, but I'd still like to check into using a "local" crew, rather than taking our in housecrew out of the country.
Does anyone on this forum have any recommendations for quality video production companies in Germany that can communicate in English? (My attempts at speaking Swiss-German are even worse than my attempts at Castilian Spanish. ;-) Companies based in Munich may work. I'd prefer to shoot in HD, but the work ethic is more important than the format. (We have a Varicam, and some HDV cameras, but I would prefer those who are experienced with their own HD gear.)
I'll also post this in the "Jobs" forum, but I'd appreciate any recommendations from this group since I'm looking for broadcast quality work, and you guys might have experience shooting there that you could pass along.
