Seremonia: Pahuuden äänet

Finally after a year of no time to make music videos here’s one for Seremonia. We started planning for this months ago and bounced off different ideas with the band but none of them stuck or were too difficult to realize. Once I had the idea for this particular script and a clear vision of how I wanted to execute it, it was the quickest turnaround ever.

Samurai Rauni Reposaarelainen – A feature film in the making part 1 (introduction)

We’ve been shooting our first feature film Samurai Rauni Reposaarelainen since January 2013. This is the first post of a few I will make during the production of the film. I don’t want to say too much about the storyline before we’ve released the film. For now the posts will be more about the technical hurdles and I hope that we can encourage and help others in making their own independent feature film.

Metabones Speed Booster EF to E-Mount

The Metabones Speed Booster seemed like a thing too good to be true. But once in a while I guess such things do happen! I’ve just recently purchased the Sony FS-700 camera so I immeadiately ordered the Speed Booster when I heard about it. What it does it converts the Super 35mm to Full Frame field of view and while doing this also adds one stop of light to the lens!
