Starwall

Starwall is a site-specific installation. A black wall is built in front of a window. Using the locations longitude, latitude and compass direction I determine what starry sky would be visible though that window at a certain time. The stars in the Starwall are lit by the sun from behind the wall during the day and in the evening by fluorescent lights that are placed behind the wall.

Barry Andrewsin Disko: Talitintti

We had a very small crew for this video. Here's a good hint, if you're shooting in front of suburbian drug store with masked men, realistic looking guns and wads of cash you should definitely call the emergency services and let them know about it. They'll be very pleased and actually it is common practice.

SLR Magic m4/3 HyperPrime 12mm f1.6 lens

This is probably one of the fastest in its price range of wide-angle lenses you can get. It's a 12mm (equals 24mm on full frame sensor) Micro Four Thirds lens at f1.6 and costs around 550 USD + vat. Although this 12mm is still a speciality lens I have been using it quite a lot already.

Seremonia: Rock ‘n’ rollin maailma

This is propably the most fun I've had on a shoot ever! Everyone had a hard time keeping their poker at all times of the day. So what you see is the footage between the smirks and the laughter we managed... We wrote the script with Ville in just a few hours. Let's face it, it's a pretty easy subject to write about! The shoot took us about nine hours. The edit one and a half days. So about a two day project in total.

Sony CLM-V55 monitor review

Just got a new GH2 (review coming at some point) and along with it got the Sony CLM-V55 monitor for it! I've been dying to get a monitor for my cam for years and have been looking and looking for something affordable. This was 366 euros. The package contains a nice sun shade that doubles as a cover when not using it as well as two hot shoe mounts that tilts 90 degrees up and down as well as swivels left and right 360 degrees.
