Kuoleman tappajan kuolema was relatively ambitious project taken into account I had very little budget for it. First idea that came to my head months ago was to bury Laura in the ground. I begun the project by writing the script based on that simple idea.
Chef santeri and Anna-Liisa Nikus have just published a cook book on how to prepare black sausage in several ways. I was hired to shoot a short web commercial for it. I was very excited to get to work with the legendary M.A. Numminen on this video. Chef Santeri aka. DJ Sane and Numminen rehashed an old legendary Numminen track Dägädägä for this ad.
Second video I shot for Seremonia from their newly released self titled album. This was a quick shot in between two longer more story driven music videos. First one was Rock ‘n’ rollin maailma that begins the story. Hopefully we get to shooting the third one some time this year.

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.
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.
