I always try to shoot on film when the circumstances are right and when the project gains from it. Especially in natural settings. Here are some of my recent commercial works shot on 16mm & 35mm film. The medium always makes the project somehow special. Apart from visual qualities it ads additional focus and sensitivity towards life we are planning to capture.  

TELE2 - BUSINESS BEGINS WITH A PERSON

TELE2 - BUSINESS BEGINS WITH A PERSON

Commercial for TELE2 Latvia. 
We decided to shoot this commercial on 16mm & 35mm analogue film to bring out natural colors and pureness of real environments and real people.

RUUKKI || RAIN

RUUKKI - RAIN 

A moody TVC for RUUKKI roofs shot on KODAK 16mm & 35mm.  

Chasing the storm was one of my long time dreams and for this project we had this opportunity. However the shooting was scheduled in Latvia, during month with absolutely no clouds. After postponing the shoot for 3 times we finally found a cloudy skies. Helped the mother nature with a little SFX rain.

RAILWAY || SOCIAL CAMPAIGN 

RAILWAY - SOCIAL CAMPAIGN 

Horrific story told through the first perspective. 
All shot on 16mm, one take. DOP's feet was seriously harmed from kicking the can for 20+ times. (we didn't think about adding a metal front for his shoe.. oh my, oh my).
