Arvokas Metsämme

Arvokas Metsämme

One aspect of being independent freelancer has always been a bit of a soft spot for me. It is working alone. Thus every oppor­tunity to work together with a profes­sional, solid team is a blessing which I enjoy very much. Some time ago, actually two years ago already, Petteri Saario – one of our most highly respected award winning nature documen­ta­rists …

Princess Sophie Diaries

Princess Sophie Diaries

A project I started about ten years ago… and almost immediately abandoned as flash became obsolete and HTML5 was still in its infancy. But. Things have changed and I thought it would be a good time to rekindle this one. I was changing ISP the other day and on the server I found a folder full of panoramas I had shot years ago. …

360° Aerial Photography

360° Aerial Photography

We are doing an interesting project in Lahti (LAMK a.k.a Lahti University of Applied Sciences), where we were assigned to shoot some video footage and stills images on our local outdoor possi­bi­lities. The client did not ask for it, but I volun­teered to shoot some 360° stills as well — I figured that since we already were on …

Outcastes — a Multimedia

Outcastes — a Multimedia

My wife looked over my shoulder when I was doing the last bits of editing yesterday. “This is the most impressive thing you’ve done in multi­media”, she said. Now talk about a compliment. And not that I agree… but I have to admit, I am proud of it. Sure, the next thing will be better — as it always should be. But …

Redundancy Revisited

Redundancy Revisited

Came to think about this after a FB discussion I had with somebody. The argument was about the need for speed in todays media. An argument I have heard so many times. Basically: How speed is of the essence and the winners of that battle will be the ones to survive in this game. I don’t remember how often I have …

Val di Fiemme 2013

Val di Fiemme 2013

(Click here or the image above to enter the multi­media) Back on the road. A quick pitstop back home after Nove Mesto and then off to Italy for couple of weeks to cover the WC of XC-skiing. Looking forward to it — as beautiful mountains all around me probably allow some skiing myself… :-) But anyway: Team …

Multimedia Production: DocImages

Everybody reading this blog in the past knows where I stand when it comes to our future: I am strongly of the opinion that paper as a medium for daily news will slowly fade out (actually, not so slowly…) and the future is elsewhere. Let me just refer you to my last post — and leave it to that. Everything …

Shooting 360°x180° Images — from a Helicopter

Shooting 360°x180° Images — from a Helicopter

This is a small demo. Please note: this works (properly) only with HTML5 compliant browser — such as Safari on a Mac. It works on iPad2 (i.e. Mobile Safari) but it does NOT work with iPad 1st gen. nor iPhone (except — I was told — it does work with iPhone 4S) — due to non-optimized media and subsequently high processing load. Thats’ …

A Walk On the Memory Lane: Rock Summer 1988

A Walk On the Memory Lane: Rock Summer 1988

This is not brilliant, far from it — but it is different, I dare say. Something I did now in the spring and finally I thought it is time to show it. Show that there are options — that it is not that hard to do something this simple, yet totally different. That there are possi­bi­lities outside the …
