Lise Pedersen During a packed day of events at the Zinemaldia Startup Challenge in San Sebastián on Thursday, 10 finalists, narrowed down from 55 submissions this year, went head-to-head in live pitching sessions at this competition designed to foster forward-looking initiatives in the tech and film-TV space.

Variety caught up with Daniel Karpantschof from Copenhagen Industries for the project Violette, which is looking to provide a 100% safe alternative for cast and crew to use firearms on sets. What’s your background? I’m an artist and entrepreneur and the co-founder and CEO of Copenhagen Industries.

I used to do project/script development at Zentropa, and then moved over to production, and left for the U.S., where I, among other things, served on President Obama’s Council of Experts for Entrepreneurship, and The Economist Group Ideas Lab.

I moved back to Copenhagen to found Copenhagen Industries with an old friend, who’s done special effects and pyrotechnics for 20 years.  Tell us about your project, Violette. It’s a 100% safe alternative to using real firearms on the screen.
