Director’s Diary Attack

June 18th, 2011 by Timo Vuorensola

Lately, the development of Iron Sky has been much more in the hands of Energia, who’s doing the CGI, and I’ve been popping in and out from there, commenting the stuff and admiring the work the guys are creating. To celebrate the beginning of The Crunch – a name I gave to the coming months for the CGI team – we took the team somewhere close to Tampere, by a nice lake and a sauna, and had a good old Finnish-style “saunailta” with everyone. It was a good time to get to know each other a bit better, and yeah, we had one sauna beer. Maybe another one. Who’s counting?

In addition to this, we’ve been travelling a bit with our team – I did a seminar in Bari, Italy; Tero was at EAVE in Sweden, and Pekka had one down in Aarhus. Here’s a small clip I shot in Bari:

And finally, we had a great guest visiting us during the week – Brian Chirls, the guy behind Crowd Controls (and our Demand-system). We had great discussions in making more things together, and also wanted to develop the Demand-system further. Brian enjoyed Finland, I assume. The Finnish “pontikka” (moonshine) did ge a bit under his skin, I think – but then again, it did for all of us. We had a great week, creative and fun – thanks Brian for stopping by!

    I can’t wait to see the final product :D I’ve posted a comment to Iron Sky’s latest post on Facebook :D I think it would be a good idea if you actually DID join that production and helped make that Danish film ;)

    I can’t wait for the final product either. All the friends and friends of friends I’ve told about Iron Sky say the film doesn’t really exist, it’s been so long in comming. But they are not film makers for the most part. Iron Sky will be the biggest cult film of all time.
