La Mia Stanza

La Mia Stanza

I was teaching the other day in Lahti (Video and Sound 101), looking for a good example for my students and I came to think of this. It is a small, simple homework I assigned in Aalto University last year, where I asked the students to come up with a thema­tically coherent story of some kind, maybe tell something about themselves …

By the Borderline

The past couple of weeks I have had the pleasure of teaching in the Aalto University a course titled Multi­media Story­telling. I think it is the fifth or so time I do it and everytime it has been different. This time it was spread over several weeks whereas last time it was a one week intensive. This time I gave quite …

Lightroom- ja Multimediakurssi

Lightroom- ja Multimediakurssi

Nyt kesäkuun alussa pidän Lahdessa LAMK:in avoimella puolella kaksi kurssia, jotka voisivat kiinnostaa. Lightroom (2pv + ennak­ko­tehtävä) ja multi­me­dia­ker­ronta (5pv + harjoi­tustyö). Lightroom: 13–14.6 (9–16) 30€, alv 0% Multi­me­dia­ker­ronta:9–10.6 ja 15–17.6 (9–16) 60€, alv 0% Kuten päivä­mää­ristä näkyy, kurssit menevät limittäin, eli jopa molem­mille voi halutessaan osallistua, mutta kurssit ovat siis täysin erillisiä. Light­roo­missa harjoit­te­lemme ohjelman alusta …

Anatomy of a Good Documentary

Anatomy of a Good Documentary

Spring for me means intensive teaching. Presently doing Video 101 for photo­graphers in LAMK (Lahti University of Applied Sciences). As always, enjoying it immensely. I asked the students in three words describe what they feel is essential in a good film / documentary. And to make things more interesting: one word had to be a noun, one an adjective and …

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

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 one-on-one teaching and attended …

(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 this also to be a defense mechanism …

The father of Picasso

The father of Picasso

It’s been extremely busy month which I’ve spent it mostly teaching. Right after coming home from Val di Fiemme I did a four day intensive on sports photo­graphy (working with photo­grapher Aki Loponen — a colla­bo­ration which I enjoyed immensely) and almost right after that one I started a two week intensive on journa­listic multi­media and -video. The sports photo­graphy course was …
