Editing process is almost over. I started one month ago and have been sitting on my computer 8-12 hours a day ever since. Some adjustments, grading, titling and other stuff to do but next week our two year project will see the light of the day. Premiere takes place in our home town Rovaniemi at Korundi concert hall on 25th of october, 19.00.
We have released second teaser for our Approach&Attack project with Antti Autti. It contains footage from two seasons we have been shooting so far and soon its time to start editing the actual movie.
I have been playing around some music, trying to figure out the mood and organizing things. Creative thinking requires some time to get ideas, rushing to the work is not my way of doing things. We did not have strict script so making everything work together surely will take some time.
Organizing and converting footage is necessary in my workflow. I was going to use different editing program but in the end I chose the old and familiar Final Cut Pro mainly because it works seamlessly with Apple´s Color, Motion and Soundtrack Pro, all the tools I need. For FCP it´s better if all the footage is in one format so converting is necessary. This process takes some time, and storage space! Currently I have 5,5 Tb´s of footage (much more than in the previous post!), same amount of backups, other stuff like photos and older videos on 15 different drives and one Drobo, and my desk is starting to get cluttered. All in all there is roughly 35 TB of stuff lying around on those drives. Buying new hard drives makes me angry and the next thing after this project is to start looking for a better solution to file and backup all the videos and photos. There´s nothing wrong with external hard drives except you get new power supply for each and every one, and plugging 15 of them at once is just not convenient.
Seasons finest event Wappulounas took place last weekend in Ruka, Finland. Great event with good friends and great vibe that is unlike anything else in the Finnish snowboarding scene. You have to be there to really experience and appreciate it! Second best alternative is to watch these quick video updates we made with anttisworld.com during the event.
And quick and dirty Super8 edit from some old footage I had lying around…..
Couple of more videos for Neste Oil X Antti Autti. We are currently working on Approach&Attack movie and some of the footage seen on these videos are shot while filming it. Some videos contain also footage from our previous movies Antiout and Relate To It. Videos are subtitled except the last one.
