Film editor / Drum & Colours Ltd
"My approach to the nature and method of editing can be summed up in three words:
ISOLATE * ILLUMINATE * ELUCIDATE
I hold there can be, and is, a rational and objective approach to film editing, that inspires the emergence of the unexpected.
A kind of original beauty out of structural discipline and non-partisan principles."
In addition to my normal role as film editor, screenwriters, producers and directors alike also employ me for dramaturgical analysis on script development and offline cuts.
I regularly give lectures on the dramaturgy of editing.
My practical knowledge and experience of the editorial logistics of feature films on- and off-location is also a skill much in demand. Here are some links to some recent talks I’ve given in Barcelona and Amsterdam.
I have received two Finnish Film Academy Award nominations for Best Editing for my work on ”Naked Harbour” and ”Unknown Soldier”.
The latter film brought home the award.
In 2017 I was awarded an honorary distinction at the Voitto Awards for my life's work in commercial editing by the Association of Independent Producers in Finland (SATU ry)
