Focus Puller / 1AC
Snowboarding and skateboarding enthusiast Jami has over 20 years’ experience in the film industry, with more than 40 features, TV series, music videos as well as hundreds of ads under his belt.
“The best part about this job is when the DP and the director feel like the camera crew and equipment isn’t any kind of hindrance to their creativity,” Jami explains.
Jari Mutikainen F.S.C.:
Having completed the “Päitsi” race around Lake Päijänne six times, enduro rider Jari has worked as a cinematographer for 30 years. He describes his career as: “Cool, sometimes less cool, but I wouldn’t trade a single day!”
Jari’s track record includes 20 features, hundreds of TV drama episodes, ads, music videos, with at least as many still in front of him. Jari has been operating a Steadicam since ’94.
Dog-lover Jarkko moved to Helsinki from Lapland just over a decade ago, and has worked as an Assistant Cameraman on dozens of feature films. His ten-year career also spans hundreds of ads, TV series, documentaries and music videos. “In the earlier years we shot on film, but gradually the cameras made the transition to digital. I count myself as lucky to have been able to work in different formats,” Jarkko explains.
