"Propably the best Finnish post-apocalyptic short film of 2015 so far"
-Our Crew, trusting there have been no others.
Not too long ago I posted trailer of my latest project for you to see. The project is called "The Endlings" ("Viimeiset" in Finnish) and it's our first Finnish language short film. It also happens to be one of our largest productions so far. We had eight people working on the project, so you can expect to see a bit more than just my old face there. Many people involved are friends of mine who I've worked with before, but haven't had a chance collaborate with for a long time. It's the usual reasons, people living in different cities, studies, work and all the little things that drain away our time. For this film we decided to get people together once again and against all odds everyone actually had time to attend. Little miracles.
There were some last minute changes; we actually had to change our composer at very late stage of production. Composer of our two previous films, David J. St-Hill, was going to be composer for this one aswell, but scheduling problems came along and we had two options; either to postpone the release by few months or try to find another composer. Luckily, one of our actors knew a Finnish composer who was interested in seeing what we had. A meeting and a few beers later we had new composer, Ville Huovila. He turned out to be very productive and it didn't take long for him to compose new soundtrack for us. I'm very happy with the work he did and can recommend him for all your soundtrack needs.

The film is 17 minutes in length, so a bit longer than my films tend to be. Your feedback in past has been very useful and much of it has been incorporated in this film. I'd like to thank you for the feedback you have given in past and I hope you like this one.
Now the film itself is set in post-apocalyptic Finland, in the end stages of war between "superhumans" and "ordinary" humans. It has influences ranging from spaghetti westerns to weird Finnish films. The dialogue is purposefully Finnish in nature; some sentences and word choices were actually bit hard to translate when writing the subtitles. It may seem somewhat awkward or monotone, but that's the way it's supposed to be. It's weird little place we have up here in the north.
(There are english subtitles, make sure they're on)
Thanks for watching.
