I know, my Youtube channel is a mess. I made a new one, where you can more easily find my old, new and current projects. Hint: it includes some hidden gems.

Forever alone

My newest film is partly inspired by the Internet meme and partly by my own earlier film, Brainwash – and some might find influences also from films of other directors.

On Friday-Saturday night, I finished editing my latest short movie, Brothers.

It’s a movie about the differences in kids’ and adults’ perception on topics such as loneliness, sorrow, impatience and joy of re-unity. After making a couple of difficult-ish films I wanted to make something cute and simple – that hopefully touches people on some level.

On the limited test audiences the film worked as expected. Kids understood it differently than adults, but both seemed to like it.

Official premiere has not taken place yet. It might happen at some film festival next year.

Thank you HLEF!

Helsinki Short Film Festival (HLEF) was amazing. Great films, great people, great party. It was especially nice to share opinions with great gurus like P.V. Lehtinen.

My film, Brainwash, did not win, but that does not matter. The aspect of demonstrating the effects of torture by torturing the audience might not be the best way to get their sympathy.

Anyway the film that won (the experimental contest), Teemapuisto by Risto-Pekka Blom, was my personal favorite. Best film won.

Brainwash to be screened at HLEF
