Fluid, mysterious, compassionate and mighty - the identifiers of our core individuality. We strive for quality within any given parameters. We believe in what we bring to the table. We are the sum of our intentions and the product of our sacrifices. 


Our company was established in 2011 and is owned by writer producers Antti Kaarlela, Antti Kairakari and Aleksi Puranen. Our current and future slates, from TV series, to film, to documentaries - are thickly lined with boldness of spirit. Positioned at the edges of the Northern Finnish city of Oulu, our singular insight stems from the peculiarity of our surroundings and the isolation of our setting. 


Business is business, yet art is life - so where does that leave most of us within the maze of this vociferous industry? We enjoy the challenge of finding the balance within these two elemental paths - creating a third realm of neither extreme. The atmosphere on our sets, the people we chose to work with, reflect this vision of balance. We adhere to a system of trust and fervent diligence to get the story and its world moving forward. Our aim is to beguile the guile of humanity and spotlight stories that have yet to be heard.

We dare to do things boldly, we hope you feel the same.
