Since 2010 we have worked more or less all the time with Annika in different projects. She is made from iron what comes to work as a director with visual results and strong stories with emotional cinematic style. She’s talented to get along with people which is really good thing if you want someone to identify to your film.

Annika’s motivation to actively work in the field of motion picture and television has been high from the get go. She graduated from University of Industrial Arts Helsinki as a movie director and has worked years since in the field. Positions as AD, feed director, cinematographer and sound engineer all add into knowledge she feels a good director needs.

Ilkka is a sailor who needs to live next to the sea. That’s why he lives in Hanko – the southest cape of Finland surrounded by the Baltic Sea. Maybe because he has survived from many hard places at the sea he also has become a very independent filmmaker who will solve any kind of project to the goal.

He has graduated from the film school with master of arts degree as a documentarist in 2015. Besides he has worked a lot with documentary he has experience from fiction, tv, commercials and installations.

Back in the days Ilkka used to be another owner of Tarasow Films with Joon. They got to know each others at the earlier film school when they studied to be film editors – which is Ilkka’s first profession on field. Nowadays Ilkka has his own production company Moving Heads that co-operates with Tarasow Films in different projects.
