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 – […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Multimedia Production: DocImages

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 […]

What IF….?

What IF….?

In the past weeks, I have had so many conversations on Reijo, rights grabbing, Sanoma et al. contracts… People are eager to know what is going on, but they are somehow totally lost in this. And the moment I try to explain it in abstract terms… I see that nervous  flicker in the eyes – you […]

Things which Make me Happy…

Things which Make me Happy…

The repulsive  dog-vomit published by HS last week really bothered me (ref. to my previous post), then some personal hate-mail, the death of a someone dear to me… Put it this way: I’ve had better weeks than the previous one. I really have. So I thought: I want to share and write something positive. Show that […]
