What We Do

About Gaucho Film

We are a creative video label and production company located in Copenhagen, and New York. We love film.

Copenhagen

Since its founding in 2004 by award-winning director/dop Michael Sauer Christensen, Gaucho Film has pioneered the marketing of youth culture through the creation of some of the most iconic Scandinavian music videos. Along the way, Michael has garnered multiple award nominations for his work. Gaucho Film is focused on producing high fashion commercials and music videos. In just ten years, Gaucho Film has produced more than 300 music videos for Scandinavian and international artists such as Medina, Nik & Jay, Maria Mena, Kato, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Shontelle and many others plus more than 100 commercials. Gaucho Film is owned by DP/shooting director Michael Sauer Christensen and functions as a ‘tool box’ for Michael on his many projects.

In Denmark, Gaucho Film is the biggest and the only one of its kind. Now it is being brought to the United States.

New York

Gaucho Film New York is a film company, which stems from its parent company Gaucho Film Copenhagen. Gaucho Film New York is not a traditional film production company. Michael Sauer Christensen, Magnus Jonsson & Martin Landgreve collectively own Gaucho Film New York. All of whom, have varied and miscellaneous backgrounds inside the industry. Together they have created a modern film company that breaks the traditional way of producing commercials and music videos in New York City.

The team ranges in generations and together they are able to provide a complete deal that includes production, creative, shooting, edit, and digital support. There is only a handful of people that have mastered multiple fields at once. You are not forced to use Gaucho Film New York in every field; Gaucho understands how to make a package suitable for each costumer’s needs.

We break the traditional way of producing commercials and music videos.

Gaucho Film is equipped with the latest gear in the field of Apple based film workflow. There are two fully equipped Final Cut HD editing rooms along with a DaVinci grading suite. This gives us great liberty to handle editing and grading in our own postproduction setup – thereby giving the project the final personal touch. Gaucho’s products reflect the work flow, it is fast and efficient without compromising the ability to get the absolute best out of each project. Dedication and professionalism are keywords during each process.

 

We are are a team of creative geniuses, itching to make your film and provide you with the best damn content you have ever had.
