Teaser #2

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.

Things under the table get tangled as well. On the left is Belkin remote adapter/surge protector that is cutting power all the time with no apparent reason. Crappiest piece of equipment I have bought in a while. Avoid all things Belkin.

Crappiest piece of equipment I have bought in a while. I got some other bad experiences from this company as well so my recommendation is to avoid all things Belkin. I need to replace it asap.

Wappulounas 2014

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…..

BC in B&W

Last february we went to British Columbia to shoot Approach&Attack project. These photos are snapshots I took with my pocket camera, LOMO LC-A. Excellent little camera that does its own magic with the available light. There is something going on in the exposure meter of this little thing, most of the times it just works in a way that never stops amaze me. Super easy to shoot and I really enjoy it with black&white film, this time it was Fomapan 400asa. British Columbia itself was awesome, despite we had some bad luck with the weather and warm fronts coming in couple of times during the trip. We visited resorts around Nelson, did some hiking and splitboarding in mountain passes and had few days of awesome powder in Valhalla Powdercats. From there we had the opportunity to visit Monashee Powder Snowcats.

Nelson has excellent location and a lot of options to do and you can find much cheaper accommodation than from the resorts or lodges. Highly recommended!
