New commercial work for Arla

We shot an one-take-film for Arla with director Otso Tiainen and producer Juha-Matti Nieminen in August. Just to add a bit more fun, I had a Cinefade ND & Iris Control and motorized slider, as well as Arri Alura zoom to add some Hitchcock movement to the take. Have a look:

Delicious food commercials

This year I’ve travelled a lot to shoot food and groceries. Since February I’ve had three fabulous commercial productions that took me to Australia, Uruguay and Hong Kong. In February I shot a food commercial in Australia for Finnish K-Supermarket directed by Juuso Syrjä and produced by Hasan Motion. We toured Sydney and areas around it for two weeks to grill meat, fish and vegetables. Delicious food shots in the style of polished documentary. It was such a great trip! In March I visited Uruguay to shoot five films for food market Lidl with director Teemu Niukkanen and production company Director’s Guild. This time, we focused more on the comic storyline of the commercial series, but made sure to cut in to delicious food shots as well. In April I shot a commercial in Hong Kong with director Otso Tiainen and Director’s Guild for a meat producer HKScan. That trip took me to film in a Michelin star restaurant and capture one the best known skylines in the world. What was the connection between these commercials was not only the food, but super nice teams behind them – directors, producers, agencies and clients.

Bordertown

It’s been a while since I last wrote a blog entry. I guess working hard has kept me busy! Last fall I DP’d the second season of Netflix Original called Bordertown. Bordertown is a nordic noir detective story that sets its story to a small Finnish town close to a Russian border. It was a fantastic experience, really demanding and highly educational! Me and my team were working simultanously with two directors Juuso Syrja and Jyri Kahonen. I was sharing the season with two great DP’s, HP Vitikainen and Mikael Gustafsson. My role was to oversee the whole look of the series as a “chief DP” and shoot ten episodes as a team effort. Shooting the series like this was an highly interesting experience for me as I haven’t shared the duties of DP with anyone in my past tv productions (this marked my 4th tv series) so I think it gave me a lot of new tools for the future productions. Please, check the trailer:
