Finland Timelapse is a passion project of mine, which was filmed on July-October 2015.

 

Video description:

“Today I’m privileged to share with you the Finland I got to experience. I’ve witnessed the diversity and immense beauty of this land from the very north all the way to the southern parts, yet every time I set off I’m in awe. Finland never ceases to amaze me, and so, I’m truly honored and blessed to call this country my home.

This journey was more than a timelapse project. I could go on and on ecstatically about what I experienced during the 8500 kilometers on the road. As I carried the burden of impending schoolwork, I had to make the most out of my time, while fulfilling my dream. It meant that the three months spent with the project were momentous.

I’m thrilled to have experienced Finland’s sublime nature on my travels, yet I’m also moved by being able to touch a great deal of people by doing what I love. I find their appraisal and kindness most humbling and rewarding.¨

I want to thank everyone from my family for playing their part in this project from the very first day I picked up this hobby till today. I’d also like to thank my relatives and friends, especially my cousin and colleague Niko Juntunen.”
