After more than a month's work with tweaking the otherworldly creature effects, I present to you my latest short film. This might be my best work so far and I'm very proud of it :)

New sketch. Normally we just make silly videos of stuff that we find amusing, but satire is such an excellent tool to make a point of various issues that we decided to address one of the flaws in Finnish law:

After a long hiatus we've made another short film, this time a spoof sequel to H.P. Lovecraft's horror novella "The Shadow over Innsmouth":



Apologies in advance to all purists :P
Over the past few months I've been experimenting with various techniques in preparation for future film-projects, including attempts at stop-motion:
 





I recently finished editing my most ambitious film project yet, combining live-action, puppetry and animation.

I'm a geek of many interests, including drawing and miniatures. I hesitate to use the word "art" because of how easily it can equate to something being very pretentious, or in the worst case an attempt at immunity against criticism. No, I don't call my stuff art, because I just doodle for the fun of it. I have a very cartoony style and I prefer to use exaggeration and simple designs to invoke what I could never make with a realistic style. I applaud those who can, but I'm quite comfortable with being a cartoonist. I work with different pencils and after scanning my drawings I use a program called Photosuite to colourize them.

Unfortunately not for the time being, as I'm mostly quite busy with work and various projects.
