Räjäyttäjät music video. Shot in one take last winter with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera in raw mode.
Barry Andrewsin Disko makes interesting music because it’s very playful yet melancholic at the same time. It is very inspiring to create images to. I wanted to write a story for this music video and I feel that for maybe the very first time I’ve managed to extract all the images I had in my head into the video.
Risto: Turvaluola music video from the new album II. The idea spun from a suggestion by Risto. He wished he wouldn’t have to be in it.
Death Hawks: Black Acid music video is my first work shooting on film since 2006. The band wanted something “out of this world” and psychedelic. So this is my interpretation of that request!

This is a second video made to promote Lau Nau’s new album Valohiukkanen. The idea was to go out on the lake with a smoke machine and capture something that had very little color information.
Music video for Janne Laurila. The first single Salainen haave from his upcoming album.
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.
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.
Music video for Tuusanuuskat shot on iPhone 8mm app.
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.
Video for Steel Mammoth’s Nightmare Ad Nauseam from the LP Nuclear Rebirth. Available from Ektro Records. Steel Mammoth’s music video was shot with my brand new Panasonic GH2.
Eleanoora Rosenholm are releasing a new album and we did the first music video for it. For this shoot I was mainly inspired by posters and DVD covers. There’s things you just can’t do when shooting horizontally. Sometimes I even prefer to shoot 3:4 aspect ratio because of this and I think it worked well for the shots where you see Eleanoora looking down or up, waving her hands high in a prayer and reaching for the sky. Also the upward shooting airplanes are a particular favourite of mine.
Risto music video from the latest compilation album.
Music video for Ignatz from his 2011 album I Hate This City.
Music video for Disco Ensemble.
This is the first video made to promote Islaja’s new album Keraaminen Pää. Making this video was a special occasion and I felt really really excited cause I got an opportunity to shoot it with a Red One camera.
For the second music video to be made off the new Disco Ensemble album the band asked once again a bunch of directors to submit scripts and ideas. I was pretty excited to hear that they liked my script enough to go ahead and shoot it. It was gonna be a big project that would require a lot of planning and preparation.
