  1. Credits for two photographers Matias Tanner & Miikka Lautkoski, who have made this hyper lapse movie. Interesting technique and beautiful target :) why I wanted to share this with you!

    I've been to Turku a couple of times. It's a very nice town, a place where I fell comfortable and at ease.

    I enjoyed the glimpse into a place I've never been, but I also really loved the production qualities. The different video tricks, the transitions are awesome, and music is spot on to the pace. Nice video and thanks for sharing.

    Nice video of an interesting place. My only other exposure to Turku was from the Jussi Vares series. I was wondering if that side of the city and life still exists? It has been a place in my imagination.
  5. Hi Ricks,
    Almost all places where Vares series was filmed are still in place, alive and kicking. Scenes were chosen so that some of the people originally living in Turku couldn't recognize, though. And films are always in "fantasy" land. Places that seem to have connection in film, can be wherever in real life. Same applies to Vares series :)

    Thanks for your explanation. Maybe I'll get to hang out at the library someday.
