SEREMONIA: ROCK’N’ROLLIN MAAILMA

Sami Sänpäkkilä | Finland 2012 | | 4 min

This is probably the most fun I’ve had on a shoot ever! Everyone had a hard time keeping their poker at all times of the day. So what you see is the footage between the smirks and the laughter we managed… We wrote the script with Ville in just a few hours. Let’s face it, it’s a pretty easy subject to write about! The shoot took us about nine hours, the edit one and a half days. So it was about a two day project in total.

Finally after a year of no time to make music videos here’s one for Seremonia. We planned for this for months and bounced off different ideas with the band but none of them stuck or were too difficult to realize. Once I had the idea for this particular script and a clear vision of how I wanted to execute it, it was the quickest turnaround ever.

Sami Sänpäkkilä | Finland 2013 | | 5 min

Kuoleman tappajan kuolema was relatively ambitious project taken into account I had very little budget for it. First idea that came to my head months ago was to bury Laura in the ground. I began the project by writing the script based on that simple idea.
