Welcome to Wildlife Vaasa Festival in 2014! 
 
Dear Friends and Colleagues, 
 
Once again this year, we at the Ostrobothnian museum’s Terranova Nature Centre of Kvarken, we 
have re‐embarked on our seventh biennial journey around the world to present our audiences  
a  diverse  and  engaging  arrays  of  the  latest nature  and  scientific  documentary  films  which  are 
produced  during  the  last  four  years.  Wildlife  Vaasa  Festival  in  2014  will  take  place  in  a  colourful 
seting with colourful Finnish autumn‐terrain an ideal time to spotlight Nature and Wildlife, in a large 
diversity of settings and within 166 films from 47 countries who participate in our festival this year.  
Almost  all  these  films  participating  this  year,  are  remarkable  and  creative  work  of  hundreds  of 
talented professional filmmakers and producers who are dedicated to document Nature on its own terms. There are works of our 
planet’s  reporters‐  the  eyes  and  ears  of  what  is  happening  to  our  world's  flora  and  fauna  today  and  festivals  like  Wildlife  Vaasa, 
always urge them to continue their great work, hoping that they will keep surprising and amazing us with more exciting stories.  
 
Our publication “Book of Entries 2014” brings together all these stories, voices and messages that come from all over the world to 
deliver  their  audiences  information  through  stunning  shots,  environmental  awareness  and  plenty  of  entertainment.  As  the  final 
stage of the competition will take now place during the festival dates (1‐5 October), our five members of the international Jury will 
face  the  hard  task,  to  select  the  winner  films  of  this  year’  festival.  Our  Juries  are  required  to  select  the  winner  films  that  have 
outstanding  qualities,  ‐  qualities  which  make  them  unique.  All  this  takes  time,  but  more  importantly  it  requires  knowledge, 
experience and the patience of a saint.  Wildlife Vaasa Festival’s jury members look for these qualities in the following criteria: 
 
1. The story line ‐ the meaning and message – what is the filmmaker trying to say 
2. The presentation of the film ‐ the rhythm, pace and flow 
3. Technical attributes ‐ Photography ‐ sound track ‐ Editing ‐ how the film is assembled 
4. The quality of the narration and subtitles ‐ how they match what is seen and heard 
5. Authenticity ‐Natural history films are predominantly fact thus, all statements made should be true 
6. Educational and entertainment value – what does the film have to offer that is new?   
 
We all look forward to the Award ceremony on Sat. October 4
th
  18.30‐22.00  at Ritz Theatre.   
 
OUR SCREENING VENUES:  two are the main venues of our festival this year; The Ritz Theatre in Vaasa and Vaasa City Library’s 
Drama Hall, both educational and cultural jewels there are situated in the heart of Vaasa city.   
 
Ritz Theatre was built in 1952 with unique interior design and great acoustics. It’s a one of the 3 Ritz cinemas in Finland together 
with other two in Turku and Helsinki. Vaasa City Library has a very long history because it's Finland’s first public library with a long 
interesting history starting from 1794! The main building was built in 1932 while the new modern added buildings incl. the Drama 
Hall (our screening venue) were opened in 2001. In Drama Hall, we will showcase a 4 days (non‐stop) screening program with daily 
themes like: Water & Underwater, The Animal Kindom, European Landscapes and Science for Nature. On Sunday October 5th from 
12.00‐18.00, The Drama Hall, will host the Children and Youth Film day with great films on display, made by very talented and 
skilful young film makers and from school children under media education projects. Highlighting the vital connections between land 
and water within our environment, it always makes up a special theme for our festival, especially after Kvarken Area became 
UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site back in 2006 for its unique land uplift phenomena. Therefore, two nature excursions are 
included in this festival program, one on Fri. Oct 3
rd
  to  Söderfjärden, a former meteorite crater created 500mil years ago, where 
thousands of cranes and other birds gather every autumn there, before they will migrate and a second trip to the Kvarken 
Arhipelago on Sat Oct 4th.  Furthermore, a Vaasa City‐tour will be offered to our delegates and it will take place during Thu. 
October 2
nd
, together with Vaasa City’s reception at the Ostrobothnian museum,on the same evening. As delegates and audience 
participation and interaction is the key to any festival’s success, we cordially invite you to visit Vaasa to experience the colourful 
Finnish autumn , capture the moments at that very time, promote your work  and your new films by making new valuable contacts 
and get inspired from our international atmosphere. We hope you enjoy the most of our events and one of Finland’s most 
international cities.

Synopsis:
We all know him, we all love him: Baloo, Mowgli’s constant companion in the
Jungle Book. Rudyard Kipling’s novel and Walt Disney’s animated movie made
this clumsy character world famous. Baloo was modeled after the Indian Sloth
Bear, a shy and mostly nocturnal animal. Surprisingly little is known about these
secretive species, and it has never been portrayed before in a natural history flm.
Having spent more than 200 shooting days in the feld over a period of three
years, Oliver Goetzl and Ivo Nörenberg were not only lucky enough to flm these
elusive creatures during the daytime, but they also witnessed behavior that had
been previously unknown to science. The flm is the very frst Natural History
production about India’s most elusive predator and it’s narrated by Sir David
Attenborough.

Synopsis:
Dumped and forgotten - for more than 50 years European countries dumped
their atomic waste in front of Europe’s coasts. What did happen with this atomic
waste? Does radioactivity really dilute and disperse over the years or does it
pollute thefood chain? And what does that mean for the customers? A german
flm crew follows the track of the barrels, discovers atomic waste, where it never
had been expected. Since 1993, dumping of atomic waste was banned. But the
atomic industry found other ways to discharge its waste- trough tubes. Which
effectdoes that cause to man and environment?

Synopsis
Animated music video to the song Brittle Crystal by a Russian group Everything
is made in China. The musical video Brittle Crystal is a video-comics whose
major topic is the state of a person in the modern information era. Its pop-art
vividness and expressiveness, dynamic image change, a mixture of styles and
techniques are all an illustration to a confused and chaotic character of the
environment in which the modern person is immersed.

The flm is the frst documentary in China that reveals the brutal truth behind
the practice of extracting bear bile. It brings to the fore the tragic plight of the

in turn rescue operations and cruel behaviors, and unites the thought with the
fact, faithfully recording humanity’s ruthless practice of taking things from animals

Who’s Afraid of the Cape Cod Bear?
Country: USA
Language: English
Length: 52 minutes

Synopsis
In May 2012, a Massachusetts black bear altered the course of history. He
captured the imagination, attention and hearts of kids and grown-ups, from
backyard to newscasts, twitter to television, tourists to law enforcement, all
hoping to catch a glimpse or even capture the elusive bear himself. The flm
chronicles this bear’s journey, in the context of debates about human
co-existence with wildlife. Melding humor and hard hitting facts, the doc offers
a range of perspectives: a veterinarian, wildlife biologist, zoo curator, cub
rescuer, NH hunter, park rangers, a Cape Cod nature writer and a Provincetown
entrepreneur.

The Bone Rush
Country: France
Language: English
Length: 52min
Completion date: 2012
Synopsis
“Go West, young man!” was the call that drove courageous fortune-seeking
adventurers into virgin territory. Two men heard that call...true pioneers who
weren’t digging for gold. Their treasure was dinosaur bones! Edward Drinker
Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh are the fathers of modern day paleontology.
They discovered close to 130 species, including the famous Diplodocus,
Allosaurus and Triceratops. The dig techniques they perfected are still used
today. Their wild adventures through ancient fossils and 19th-century
lawlessness combine comedy, action and science. Our two scientists were
among the frst foot-soldiers in what has become the polemic-riven inter-national
“Bone Wars” that now stretch all the way to China...

Synopsis:
The (marine) ecosystems of the Cape Verde Islands, an archipelago of 10
islands located in the central Atlantic Ocean, 570 kilometers off the coast of
Western Africa, carry a high bio diversity. Darwin visited the Cape Verde Islands
in 1832. He didn’t dive. Otherwise the stunning marine diversity of these islands
would have triggered his theory of evolution. The archipelago of Cape Verde is
improving its positioning as a tourist destination. According to the latest offcial
statistics, tourist arrivals continue growing at a rate of 22 percent and it is
projected that Cape Verde will reach the benchmark of 1 million tourists annually
by 2015. Continuing dynamic development of the tourism sector raises questions
about sustainability and the effects on the unique (underwater)nature.

Synopsis:
The vegetation of the the Klein Karoo region of South Africa is unique, with
around 4 500 species of plants that are found nowhere else on earth, occurring
in three internationally-recognised biodiversity hot spots. In 2011, a new
Biosphere Reserve was established with the aim of protecting these hotspots
from further damage. Hopefully, in so doing, it will also protect and restore the
water catchments of the area and thereby, improve the water availability in this
water-stressed area.

The Olive Tree and Olive Oil of Cyprus
Country: Cyprus
Language: English
Length: 52 min
Completion date: 2011
Synopsis:
The documentary ”The Olive-Tree and Olive-Oil of Cyprus” completes a wine-bread-oil trilogy
begun in 2001 with the production of the ”The roots of the Cyprus Wine” documentary and
which continued in 2006 with the documentary ”Cypriot Bread ”. The geographer Strabo gave
Cyprus the appellation “evelaios” or “of good oil”, with the much-in-demand Cypriot olive-oil
also being described by Synesius as “light and eupeptic”. The long road from the cultivation
of the olive-tree to the production of olive-oil, whether light or dark, is also the course followed
by this flm. As in the two previous flms, this one also makes use of what are possibly the last
opportunities to immortalize scenes encompassing some of the protagonists of Cyprus’ rural life.
The flm also makes reference to olive-oil production methods during antiquity, as well as to the
relationship between both the olive-tree and olive-oil with the Orthodox Christian faith.

Synopsis:
The bread of Cyprus, according to an 18th century traveler, was not only an exceptional quality,
but also the best to be found in the entire Levant. Fot the inhabitants of the island however,
it was something even more important: it was a daily staple, neccesary for survival.The long
road leading from wheat to bread is also the path followed by this flm, which ”reaps” the
last opportunities for immortalizing scens leaturing individuals from the Cypriot countryside
who for years were individuals cereal-crop cultivation. In the flm, bread is presented in all its
manifestations, from the daily staple, always present on the table, to the sanctifed ”artos” used
in holy communication, as well as the traditional breads associated with the major religious
feasts. In addition, the signifcance of bread in the customs of the Cypriot people illustrates the
ethological aspect - and value - of this almost universal staple.

Alam-Pedja is one of Estonia’s largest nature reserves, where river banks are
covered with broad foodplain meadows and rare alluvial forests, and rivers

doing for millennia, and human intervention in this wildlife is limited to preserving
foodplain meadows – large communities originated partly through human
involvement. But neighbouring the reserve is the second largest city in Estonia,
where more and more people set out in boats on the rivers to Alam-Pedja, and
the area is also bordered by major highways with a never-ending stream of traffc.
Alam-Pedja is something ancient and untouched, reminding us of our origins and
of the native environment where we belong.

and colourful members of our native species live in the bog. Plants that eat
animals live here and mushrooms that suck the live out of plants. The rutting
dance of the Great snipes and the hatching of a great crane chick are just a few
of the miracles happening in a moor every season. Today- the European Union
is runner-up world champion in setting free hazardous greenhouse gases
through the destruction of moors and bogs. The flm shows the biodiversity of the
often rarely recognized habitat - and it is a quiet appeal: SAVE and PRESERVE
the last intact MOORS!

Spring Awakening
Country: Germany
Language: English
Length: 44 min
Completion date: 2014
Synopsis:
The secret lives of our garden creatures, a hidden world right under our feet, revealed in
dazzling colour and intimate detail. The garden has long epitomized paradise, and many
of us derive great pleasure in creating our own Garden of Eden. With the help of nature,
we fnd a world of beguiling scents and colours. But many of the creatures that live here
go unnoticed, leading secretive and mysterious lives. Small feld voles make a network
of tunnels under the vegetable plot, and a shy weasel hides in the woodpile. Mason bees
wallpaper their nest with colourful petals, and tiny ants form partnerships with some of
our most gorgeous fowers. As winter gives way to spring and summer, this programme
reveals in stunning detail the beauty and intimate moments of our garden residents.
Slow-motion and time-lapse photography unravels a hidden and little-known world.

The Backyard Jungle -
Harvest Time
Country: Germany
Language: English
Length: 44 min
Completion date: 2014
Synopsis:
The little-known dramas and private lives of both familiar and unusual garden visitors revealed
in glossy colour and intimate detail. Our love for gardens has created a unique habitat with
thousands of ornamental fowers. Hundreds of years of cultivation have turned small and
simple fowers into glorious blossoms. But there is more to the garden than meets the eye. It
also provides an invaluable refuge for wildlife in a changing landscape. Today, exotic plants live
alongside native animals; an eclectic mix created by generations of gardeners. The buddleia
or butterfy bush acts as a magnet for our native butterfies, and the popular tomato plant is a
favourite with the hawkmoth caterpillar. As summer turns to autumn, small grass snakes hatch
within the compost and edible dormice look for apples stored in our garden sheds. Stunning
high defnition footage and time-lapse photography reveals the vibrant colours of autumn and
winter. This is a journey into an unknown and exotic wilderness that is our own back garden.

They’re back: wolves, lynx and bears in the middle of Europe, from the Polar
Circle to the Mediterranean Sea…and they’re multiplying. They know no

issue. Wherever the great predators reappear, society is split into those for and
those against. On the one side are the anxious: livestock owners who fear for
their herds, and hunters who suddenly have natural competitors once more. On
the other side are the nature and species conservationists. A broad majority in
Europe longs for untamed nature, but how will it cope with wolves, lynx and
bears on its very doorstep?

Triumph of the Tomato
Country: Austria
Language: English
Length: 50 min
Completion date: 2014
Synopsis:
The original Peruvian tomat’l - ’swollen fruit’- was yellow and the Conquistadores
prized it for its blossom. But in Europe under the Spanish sun its lycopene went
wild; rounded and red, it became irresistible. In Austria they still call it the
«paradise fruit», and in Italy the «golden apple». This was surely the real
forbidden fruit in the world’s frst seduction! Today’s obsession with shape, size
and long shelf-life has reduced the once glorious tomato to mushy tastelessness.
But the counter-revolution has started! From tomato seedster Erich Stekovics
with his 3,200 varieties stored in nylon stockings, to tomato tsarina Irina
Zacharias, saved by the red fruit after the fall of Communism. From the pizza
that boosted Queen Margarita’s sex life to Chinese Tomato King Li Jingfu’s 32
new strains, cross-bred to feed his fellow countrymen - and Joe Cocker, who
serenades the crimson fruit and knows «it’s Blues they like best».

Schladming Magic Mountains
- Land of the Chamois
Country: Austria
Language: English
Length: 50 min
Completion date: 2013
Synopsis:
Schladming in Austria is not the best known of the country’s ski regions but it’s one of the fnest -
because it keeps a low profle and makes sure the season doesn’t dominate the landscape.
That also means its nature is better protected than in normal mixed regions. Sheer rock walls
and deep ravines crying out to be climbed, cycling trails in the forest and some of the swiftest
and blackest ski runs; peaks and pines eye their ref ections in shimmering lakes, bordered by
moss, lichen and fower-studded slopes. These are Schladming’s Magic Mountains. Beside the
slopes this landscape is full of wild animals. Red deer, black-grouse and pygmy owls inhabit
the woods and alpine meadows. Winter is merciless cold in these mountains, but there is one
animal which is perfectly adapted to this habitat: the chamois. Though this region is controlled
by men, it is a hot spot for wild animals - and sometimes even the wolves come back to this
territory, which once belonged to them.

You might think you were in Ireland, you might sense the vastness of Castile in

Mountains are - geologically - Austria’s oldest landscape. For a hundred million
years, the land around them has risen and fallen, while the mountains themselves
hardly moved. And for the past thousand years, the same has been true of the
harmonious co-existence of wild nature and rural culture. Wreathed in gentle
clouds circling the smooth green mountain tops, there is a serenity to this
region that makes it easy to believe you’re not far from heaven’s door.

- How Dogs Discovered Man
Country: Austria

Length: 50 min
Completion date: 2013
Synopsis:
No animal refects human social changes as much as the dog. For millennia,
dogs have served as mankind’s hunting buddies, vital companions in our struggle
for survival. But today’s increasingly civilized world forces modern dogs to
abandon their frst instincts, serving as replacement children or partners for
alienated urbanites, diagnosing cancer, or sniffng for drugs. We have forgotten
what it actually means to be a dog, a hunter. «Hunting Buddies» looks back at
this part of our cultural history, and asks what we have given up and gained as
our relationship with dogs has changed. Starring fve different hunting dogs, we
follow them in real life situations seen from the dogs’ perspective. Each episode
is associated with a specifc period in hunting history, when each dog breed was
supremely adapted to the tasks and skills required.

Synopsis:
Ben is a sparrow in the Soukh in Cairo. Bushy and tousled, he fits between crowded stalls to
build his nest and attract a mate. He’s one of fve heroes of «Planet Sparrow». Their adventures
cover the world, travelling westward with the sun from Cairo to Vienna, Paris, New York, Beijing
and Moscow. Small and grey-brown, sparrows may seem dull, but this frst impression is
deceptive. They sing as prettily as canaries and can imitate other birds - even machines!
They’re extremely clever, dunking dry bread and rice in water to eat, and learning to open milk
cans by watching other birds. Their insect-hunting skills are breathtaking. The camera pursues
these artists of fight through narrow alleys, revealing their spectacular aerial manoeuvres.
In Paris centuries of living with humans has taught them to form teams that steal and share
the food of restaurant diners. In New York, orphaned sparrow chicks are adopted by new
sparrow parents. The birds play Russian Roulette in Moscow, fying beneath the cars on the
busiest roads to save winter energy.

Secrets of Bumblebees
Country: Austria
Language: English
Length: 50 min
Completion date: 2013
Synopsis:
They are chubbier, fuzzier and more leisurely than their sisters, the bees
They are a lot less aggressive and awe-inspiring than their cousins the wasps. When early
spring brings out the frst bumblebees, they bring a smile to our faces. If the Insect World were
a stage, they would be the bumbling comedians! Let’s not be taken in, though. They might
not look as industrious as the proverbial busy bee, but they are no less effcient pollinators
and nectar gatherers - in fact, with honey-bee populations worldwide disastrously depleted by
Varroa mites, viruses and pesticides, hopes have started to bud that bumblebees might take
their place as pollinators for crop plants. Compared to honey bees, these social insects have
long been poorly researched, although they’re at home in temperate regions throughout the
Northern Hemisphere and South America. A few tropical species form colonies lasting several
years, but elsewhere only the summer’s new Queens survive into next spring. So the colonies
remain small - around 80 individuals rather than tens of thousands - and there is no need to
store nectar for hibernation - a fact that has kept honey-loving gourmets like us away from their -
often underground - nests. This documentary however endeavours to sneak in - not to raid their
supplies, but to take a closer look. Macro and high speed cinematography allow us to witness
their behaviour (they are not too heavy to fy), understand their biology (they do sting, and fur
and antifreeze keep them active in the cold), experience their unique abilities and leave us in
awe of these droll little harbingers of spring.

Country: Austria

Synopsis:
A palace in a private woodland park near the city of Vienna; 25 square
miles of lonely beauty
designed for a tragic empress. The Lainzer Park was a gift from the Emperor to his wife
Elisabeth, Empress of Austria, more than a century ago. It was to be her sanctuary from the
suffocating protocol of court. Today, visitors are restricted to the offcial paths of a walled
wonderland that is both completely wild and fully protected, a landscape untouched by the age
of industry. In the midst of the forest is a garden whose four-hundred-year old oaks have trunks
with diameters greater than four metres. The crowns of the trees are host to more than 1,000
insect species, including a hundred different kinds of butterfy. In the spirit of Thomas Rilk’s last
flm «Wasteland Warriors», set in Vienna’s building sites and scrublands, this hidden ecosystem
reveals a macro world of astonishing variety, beauty and colour in the trees and on the ground,
and follows the free-roaming deer and wild hogs that live so close to the busy centre of Austria’s
capital city.

Country: Austria
Language: English

This is the story of a species in extremis: the Iberian lynx certainly is the world’s
most endangered and rarest cat – on the very brink of extinction as recently as
the turn of the millennium. However, it looks like the Iberian lynx is making a
cautious comeback. This program beautifully portrays Iberia’s charismatic big
cat, a specialized rabbit hunter, in its habitat -- the most stunning and wildest
landscapes of southern Spain. The leap of the last Iberian lynx back from
hopelessness into a sustainable future is a truly inspiring drama about the

Killer Whales - Fins of Change
Country: Austria
Language: English
Length: 53 min
Completion date: 2014
Synopsis:
This flm reveals the current change in the Arctic: the northern polar region is
the fastest warming area on our planet. The sea ice is receding ever further
during the Arctic summer. This has dramatic consequences: on one hand, the
polar bear looses vital habitat - because this previous top predator is used to
hunt for seals on the ice. On the other hand, the Arctic ocean is increasingly
opening up in summer, thus getting more and more accessible for orcas.
Therefore, the so-called ”killer whales” are taking over the role as the new
top predators of the Arctic - while the polar bears are struggling to survive.

Secrets of the Eel
Country: Austria

Synopsis:
Though much of the natural world is discovered and understood, a few great
mysteries remain. Consider the eel – unappealingly snake-like and slimy, with
strong jaws and rows of sandpapery teeth. Aside from these fearsome qualities,
we know little about the life of this amazing fsh. Where it goes, what it does,
and how it dies, nobody knows. Hailed by poets as the “siren of the North Sea”
and “love’s arrow on Earth,” this shadowy creature has fascinated researchers
for centuries. And now James Prosek, artist, writer, and eminent naturalist, takes
on the mystery of eels, shedding light on the cultural history, biology, and
economics surrounding the creature, as well as the passions it inspires in those
who seek to know it.

American plains. Altought westward settlement of the continent saw the virtual
extinction of these vast herds and their eternal predators, this ancient relationship
was not lost altogether. On the northern edge of the continent’s central plains, in
a place named Wood Buffalo National Park, buffalo and wolves still engage in
epic life and death dramas. By following one pack of wolves, wildlife flmmaker
Jeff Turner captures how these two animal species live together in what seems
like a forgotten corner of the world.

Can Gentle Survive?
Country: USA
Language: English
Length: 10 min
Completion date: 2010
Synopsis:
Manatees, often called ”Sea Cows”, are one of the gentlest and most docile
creatures in all of nature. They have been at the center of a long-running feud in
Florida waters between recreational boaters who strike and kill dozens of
manatees every year, and those who wish to save these animals. Noise pollution,
the draining of their native rivers, hydroelectric power plants, and a multitude of
other human activities all contribute to the potential demise of these extraordinary
creatures.

O Christmas Tree
Country: Germany
Language: English
Length: 51 min
Completion date: 2013
Synopsis:
The Christmas tree is a piece of merchandise, which is in great demand. Across
Europe approximately 70 million Christmas trees are sold every year. Many of
them come from Denmark, where mainly Caucasian frs are cultivated. Their
seeds grow in the area surrounding the small provincial town of Ambrolauri in
Georgia. Even today, the cones of the Caucasian frs have to be collected in a
very adventurous manner. Courageous workers climb to the top of the trees
where the cones can be found. This job is both strenuous as well as highly
dangerous, as the individual trees grow to heights of between 30 and 60 metres.
Yet, hardly anyone uses a safety harness or a helmet, as they are too expensive.
Even though terrible accidents are a regular occurrence, the people have no
other choice as they are fully dependent on this work

Urine Superpowers
Country: France
Language: English
Length: 52 min
Completion date: 2013
Synopsis:
Many of us are oblivious to the fact that our frst months of life were actually
spent swimming in urine. Indeed, the amniotic sac is made up of 80% urine,
from the fetus and on average, the fetus releases two glasses of pee per day.
During our lives, each of us will have produced 38.000 liters of urine, the
equivalent of a large tanker truck. Despite the importance of this matter, urine
remains taboo. Today, we will go beyond this prohibition, release the cork, and
take a wee look a tour pee that is more valuable than once thought: in medicine
for healing, technology as a source of energy, raw material, and industrial
fertilizers. The opportunities of our noble liquid are now the object of many
patents. Despite the gradual success of urine, flming it could still create
somewhat of a scandal! To satisfy our interests without disgust, whenever
possible we will be using thermal imaging, microscopic and high-speed cameras.
This is the story of: URINE SUPERPOWERS.

Mr Jukka Tyni  
 
Jukka  works  as  a  camera  operator  at  the  Finnish  Broadcasting  Company  (YLE)  since  1991.  During  his  long 
career  he  has  worked  also  in  wildlife  TV  production  as  cinematographer  and  journalist  at  the  popular  YLE 
nature  programs  as  “Uteliv”,  “Liikeellä  luonossa”.  Jukka’s  best  memories  from  his  nature  filming  projects 
come  from  the  Red  Sea  and  Norway  when  once  he  had  the  opportunity  to  film  underwater  orcas  (killer 
whales) while they were preying on herring. His first encounter with sharks was also very impressive filming 
experience for him. Although nowadays his current working fields are expanded in various production areas, 
Jukka  respects  a  lot  wildlife  filmmakers  work,  because  he  thinks  that  very  often  they  face  such  difficult 
filming conditions, that it’s extremely difficult to do the work and he believes that nature films can help us 
people to understand better who we are and how we are related with nature.
