If IO where to go Independent i would say Nordisk Film would be the mostly likely backer.
Chaining studios in this line of profession is more or less common and it's very rare to see a employee stay with a studio for a long amount of time, they are mostly work on contracts and then move on if they are not rehired when their contract is up. Yes it might be stressful, but this is a different line of work and people in this industry are use to move between studios and settle where they get hired.
