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've posted sporadically about various short-films and sketches that my friends and I have made on our spare time. "Guerilla Pictures", as we call our group of amateur filmmakers, currently has a collection of five zero-budget shorts (plus one behind-the-scenes video) which can all be found on Youtube. We're planning on making more shorts over the coming year and work on ever more ambitious projects, with the hope of some day advancing to anthologies and feature films.

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.
