Three Illustrators

Three Illustrators

I promised couple of weeks ago that I show some things which have been keeping me busy – and thus away from this blog – so here is another one. It is one of the most memorable assignments this year, a series of three small portraits I did for Kuvittajat RY (Finnish Illustrators). Every two years […]

Kolme strategiaa medialle

Kolme strategiaa medialle

Janne Zareff kirjoittaa viimeisessä Journalistin kolumnissaan, että verotuspäätökset eivät ratkaise ammattijournalismin ongelmia. Ongelmat  ratkaistaan sillä, että tarjotaan jotain sellaista, mistä jatkossakin yleisö on valmis maksamaan. Hän toteaa kylmän viileästi ja täysin oikein, että ammatijournalismin olemassaolo ei ole itsestäänselvyys, vaan että se on yksinkertaisesti ilmiö, joka on syntynyt tietynlaisessa historiallisessa tilanteessa. Toisenlaisessa historiallisessa tilanteessa sen olemassaolo voi […]

Multimedia Workshop

Multimedia Workshop

I just finished an intensive of multimedia storytelling in Aalto last week. Doing it intensively (i.e. 6-8 hours close contact, every day) really wears you out. Trying to stay “fresh” yourself, i.e. not fall into routines, and all the time trying to find out what it is this time you really think students would appreciate and benefit […]

Workshops and teaching

One of the reasons I have been quiet in this blog has been my rather serious commitment to teaching, which leaves very little time for anything else. Last semester I taught  in Lahti University of Applied Sciences (photography / video editing / multimedia) and Aalto ARTS University in Helsinki (multimedia). In addition I was doing some […]

Congratulations, Heli!

Congratulations, Heli!

I’ve written about this multimedia piece couple of times earlier. But please bear with me one more time. Today I had the honor of receiving the Multimedia of the Year 2013 Award (Suomen Lehtikuvaajat / Finnish Pressphotographers Association) together with Heli Kaskinen in Helsinki for DocImages. My role in this production was simply to act […]

From Disruption to Multimedia

This is one theme I have been talking about a lot lately. Earlier this summer I spoke about this in Nordic Freelance 2013 seminar, now last monday I spoke about it  in Tallinn, Estonia. I just thought I summarize the outline of my thinking here. In case somebody might find it useful… Or someone might […]

Kind of Happiness

  (Click this or the image to enter the multimedia) The latest multimedia piece of  DocImages is now out.  Yes, I am biased – naturally – as I acted as the executive producer… But the work of Saara Mansikkamäki and Niclas Mäkelä is worth watching. It is an experimental piece (with its weaknesses of which we […]

Regards, Terhi

(Click the image to see the work) The public discussion on  bullying has been active during the past weeks. Aamulehti published on a cover of their Sunday edition a letter of an 8-year old, who is being bullied in school. A very touching letter. Some cynics have questioned the authenticity of the letter.  I understand […]

On the Ethics of Journalism

  I had the honor of seeing this piece couple of weeks ago in a screening in New York.  I think it is a great piece, absolutely worth your time. But before you watch it, please make sure you read this accompanying essay by Eric Maierson, the producer of this particular piece. Trust me, read […]
