A Touch of Hollywood in Sweden

CAN Film is a boutique post-production and film company based in the heart of Gothenburg, Sweden. Founded in 2015 by Clas Hakeröd and Nikolai Waldman, these two industry veterans possess over 30 years of combined film industry experience and a partnership that has grown stronger as they continue to collaborate across projects that include popular TV series, feature films, commercials, and documentaries.

Their firm's impressive resume includes titles such as, The Girl who Played with Fire, and Pleasure, as well as servicing commercial clients including Volvo and IKEA.

At the beginning of 2021, CAN Film decided to expand their offerings and move into a larger facility. Looking for, and eventually finding, a location that integrated a cutting-edge, professional color grading theatre and a sound mixing studio, would provide clients with access to full, post-production services in one comfortable setting.

The Challenge

CAN Film successfully built a loyal client base by providing a winning combination of comprehensive service, expertise, and trust found in major post-production studios, and offered at value-packed rates. The company needed a larger space, allowing them to expand services offered—where balancing value with quality, and meeting their clients' expectations, could be top-of-mind.

The Solution

Clas and Nikolai recognized the opportunity to optimize the cinematic experience of their clients. The new location's spectacularly high ceilings made it easy to incorporate a 205 inch WallScreen Deluxe in a 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Stewart's SnoMatte 100 screen material was specified for its strict color accuracy and white field uniformity standards, making the screen a striking feature in CAN Film's color grading theater.

The Technology

Central to the color grading suite at the CAN Film facility is a newly installed Stewart Filmscreen WallScreen Deluxe fixed frame screen system measuring 205 inches in diagonal in 1.85:1 aspect ratio. SnoMatte 100 screen material was selected for its reputation for superb color accuracy and white field uniformity. Stewart's SnoMatte 100 is long-recognized as the reference standard for digital intermediate (DI) and color editing during the filmmaking process.


CAN Film has been the top post-production destination for Scandinavia's finest and most highly acclaimed producers and directors in the areas of documentary films, feature films, television, corporate video and international commercials.

Furnished with a brand-new, visually immersive state-of-the art color grading theatre, CAN Film now offers professional filmmakers, editors, and sound engineers the ability to bring their visions to life on the big screen. With their recent addition of a Stewart Filmscreen professional projection screen with reference screen material, SnoMatte 100, the room provides the opportunity to enhance the audiovisual experience of all projects in ways previously not possible. CAN Film's innovative cinema gives the Scandinavian film industry a leading post-production facility, optimized to capture artistic intent and generate appeal to all international film directors, producers, directors of photography, cinematographers, and colorists who can now take their projects to new, creative heights.
