Iron Sky will premiere next month at the Berlinale!

January 25th, 2012 by Timo Vuorensola

Iron Sky is complete and will have its world premiere this February at the Berlin International Film Festival! Iron Sky is part of the official selection in the Panorama section, which screens films that push the envelope with unique vision.

What this means is that after six years of hard work Iron Sky will premiere at one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world. We couldn’t be happier!

All in all there will be six screenings during the festival between 11th and 19th of February. For more information where to book tickets see our website. In addition we’re holding a party after the premiere screening with the cast & crew. The festival ticket office opens next month, but for the premiere screening and the party we have had a limited number of tickets available from the Iron Sky Store.

See you in Berlin!

Edit: And we’re sold out on our store. Didn’t take long. We try and organize more tickets but can’t promise anything.

Director’s Diary: The Aural Dimension of the Moon Nazis

January 24th, 2012 by Timo Vuorensola

Iron Sky has been in production for ages, and one of the last and the most important tasks is the sound design phase. Working with a Münich-based sound studio Wavefront Studios, whose head honcho Heiko Müller is our Sound Designer, we’ve managed to create a huge world full of sounds that’s quite unlike anything you’ve heard before. In this episode of Director’s Diary, I’m having a chat with Heiko about the production of the sounds for Iron Sky, and we even tell you a bit aboutThe Götterdämmerung. Whatever that is.

The music to this episode was provided by an awesome Finnish electro artists Phann Org – check out more of his work here!

Iron Sky is now on it’s very last legs of production, but your constant support is still required for us to pull this through and make sure we don’t fall on our asses in the very last minutes. Best way to support is to visit our store and gear your ass up for the winter with some Iron Sky clothes and whatever you might need. We’re also still accepting investments, so if you feel like you’re having a bit of loose cash and want to help us make sure everyone gets to see the film, and maybe even earn a bit while doing that, head on over here.

Ja suomalaiset toverimme: kuten ehkä olette tietoisia, Iron Sky on lähdössä ensi-iltakiertueelle läpi Suomen 13.3.2012, ja kiertuelippuja on saatavilla täältä. Osa paikkakunnista on jo loppuunmyyty ja liput löytävät jatkuvasti uusia ostajia, eli kannattaa securettaa omansa vielä kun ehtii, jos tällaisen Torssosmin viskaan tässä vaiheessa tiskiin! Tässä vielä video rundista, tsekatkaapa ja nähdään lauteilla!

147 Days To Go: Iron Sky According To Udo Kier

November 9th, 2011 by Timo Vuorensola

I traveled from Melbourne to Los Angeles, which was quite a heavy trip indeed. Riding with Air China Southern first from Melbourne to China (9,5h), and from there to LA (13h), including 3,5h stopover and 3 hours in immigration… Arriving to our joint I felt like I was driven over by a panzerwagon… Anyway, now that I’m here, I’ve been recovering from the time difference, had some meetings and has been doing ADR with Udo Kier. Udo was also kind enough to invite me over to the premiere of Melancholia, a film which I absolutely adored and was completely blown off by it’s excellency, and I even got to meet quickly with lovely Kirsten Dunst <3

Here's one quite a hefty Director's Diary from my great day doing ADR with Udo, where he shares his own view on the story of Iron Sky, and even comes up with quite a good opening for the sequel!

This episode music was provided by a great goth synth pop band from Sweden called Trocadero Strike Force - and they have shared their EP – awesomely named as “Awesome In A Box” – for free on their website. Check them out here!

Also, special thanks to Janne Tamminen for helping me out with the kamerawerks.

152 Days To Go: Chris Up Close

November 4th, 2011 by Timo Vuorensola

One of the biggest and the most challenging roles in the film is the one of Washington, played by Christoper Kirby. His character is an American “astronaut” of sorts that gets in big trouble with the Moon Nazis, and his story is one of the biggest and freakiest in the film. Chris is not the son of yesterday’s grouse, as we in Finland say. I know it doesn’t make any sense, and it really doesn’t, but it means that he’s been around for quite a while, and done some quite impressive films and TV in his career. Chris started out in an episode of Quantum Leap (so he knows the great Scott Bakula!!), and after that he’s been working on shows like Flipper and Beastmaster, and in films he’s done roles in Matrix Revolutions, Daybreakers, and Star Wars: Episode III, and his upcoming movie called Movie 43 seems to be quite an interesting one. So he’s an experienced, very talented actor who was willing to go all the way to hell and back for this film, and he quite literally did.

In this episode of Director’s Diary, which I shot after a full 10-hour ADR day, consisting of around 100 loops which is A MASSIVE AMOUNT, I’m having a chat with Chris about his thoughts on the film.

This time, the music for this is provided by an artist called Max Farnea, and his song Contro Il Mondo, from the album Drop Paths. Check it out, it’s available for free here! And you can listen to it straight away, here:
