We’ve been busy in Helsinki for the past few weeks. This week a lot of time has been taken up by numerous hours of research into new equipment, mostly looking at MFT cameras. Does the future see us owning a GH4 for shooting 4K, I don’t know.
We’ve also been filming a lot with PictureControl Productions, in Talma. We made this video to help PictureControl make their way to the Snowboarding Finnish Open – where they will compete against the best video production teams in Finnish snowboarding. Check out the video:

We had a blast at Tahko at the end of January. One of the highlights was filming at the Piazza club in the central village of Tahko. We we’re lucky to be shooting a show by Ressu & Jussi (Ressu being of the original Bogart Co. fame) – and they even performed “All the Best Girls.”
The next weekend we were sent off on a video production project in Monaco, however had it canceled from under us, so we had a few meetings with other clients, and the rest of the week was spent on the alps, mainly Isola 2000 and Valberg.
The snow was quite different than in Finland, especially with this years extremely low snowfall, and the days we’re spent falling over in powder. This is what we basically looked like:
We’ve just hit the send button on a fistful of videos, and a lot of them should be going public very soon, so we will be posting some more content very soon. Stay tuned!

We’re back already.
We spent a good 8 hours on the road today. First driving through Helsinki picking up our gear, and then driving to Pornainen to pick up one of our crew members, and finally took the long road to Tahko – at least our room was ready.
We we’re greeted by a friendly -20°C… however we still managed to scout the on hill locations, and also do some quick laps in the park (which is really fun).
This is what our set up looks like (without the mechanical stuff – I’ll post that tomorrow):

A big weekend in front of us – heading to Tahko to film some promotional videos for TahkoCom.
We’ve already planned our kit for shooting and are loading up the car with snowboards and other equipment later tonight.
If you’re curious, this is our kit:
- Canon Eos 5D Mark III (primary camera)- Canon Eos 60D (secondary camera)
- GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition (why not)
- Assorted lenses, incl. Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 VC, Canon 50mm f1.4, Samyang 8mm
- 120cm slider
Thanks to KinosFilmi in Helsinki for hooking us up with some equipment – if you’re making films in Helsinki and need any kind of equipment, they’ll have it (I’m talking serious cinema gear).

Happy New Year. A bit late we know, but we’ve been busy.
We’ve enjoyed some new clients, including Finnish marketing agency Louder, Adidas Finland, and Tahko ski center. Lots of projects behind us, and some good ones ahead of us.
In other news, Finland just got it’s first snow fall (pretty late in the winter we know), and we love snowboarding, so we made this little preseason video of us and PictureControl Productions having fun and a BBQ at our local resort Talma.
Have a look and enjoy!

We spent yesterday morning discussing future projects with the lovely people over at Marketing Agency Louder in Helsinki. Came up with lots of great ideas, and we’re looking forward to working together.
In other news, we took a night off and went and watched some ice hockey. This time it was Jokerit – Kärpät at the Hartwall Arena, good game, despite the very slow start for Jokerit (they still ended up losing – yay – we support HIFK).

We spent last week in Holland filming a video for SnowWorld in Landgraaf. We took some guys from PictureControl Productions in Helsinki with us for the week, and this is what we came up with:
We’ve been back in Helsinki for a week now, and have been preparing for a meeting with the lovely people over at SuperLouder. We’re trying to come up with some interesting projects for the future; wish us luck!
We we’re also invited to film, very impromptu (that’s why we almost forgot about it), at Finnish jewellery designer NB Collection’s Christmas party at Namu in Helsinki. Here’s the video:
That was a blast, and we even got to enjoy a few Gin Tonic’s on the job (Hendrick’s of course).
In the meantime, we’ve been playing billiards, and even had our first visit to Hard Rock Cafe in Helsinki, for a bunch of their legendary burgers (with the BBQ sauce of course).
