Ruined Films is a passionate cell of filmmaking talent and vision. We're engaged in creative media production and offer a range of professional services from complete promotional videos to individual post production tasks. We operate out of our beautiful nation's capital, Helsinki.
Our purpose is to create and to see the initial concepts become reality.

Imagine what we could achieve together.

Out of the Shadows

This fall was special for Finnish movie industry and especially its genre film scene - with the release of Rendel the international spotlight was focused on our nation's first superhero movie. It feels like it has been impossible to avoid exposure to Rendel's marketing in the usual social media channels and the grim mask of the film's vigilante will be recognized by most Finnish moviegoers.

Ruined Films participated in the making of the movie by assisting with stunt choreography and creating additional visual effects during its post production. It has been great to see Rendel gather deserved attention, many positive reviews and recognition in international film festivals abroad. We also feel that its legacy will play big part in Finnish movie industry's future - the way is now paved for other genre films to follow. Congratulations to the entire Rendel crew!

A "Great idea" - My Rode Reel 2017 Entry

Here it is - our contribution to the "My Rode Reel 2017" competition! This time it's a short film about film making, and from the initial spark of an idea to the majestic end product, making a motion picture is always an adventure. Do you know the feeling when you've got so many great ideas, endless enthusiasm and a willing wingman - but it proves a bit challenging to convey your vision and put it all together? At least you can take solace in knowing that in the end it's all about the imagination... well, almost.

A key part of any film competition's flavor is the sense of community - the crew is striding towards a common goal under deadline pressure and having fun while at it! When the work is done and out there, begins the interaction between different production houses. We received great feedback last year and cannot wait to see what everybody else has come up with this time! To accompany the Rode Reel entries there's also the mandatory Behind the Scenes material, which is always enlightening to witness - so much work might go into a simple shot.

HJK: Ensimmäinen europeli

We recently returned to the evolving Olympiastadion in Helsinki to shoot another nostalgic commercial in the historical spirits of the most popular sport in the world. Ruined Films steered the production amidst the construction work according to the script by Cassius - a smooth co-operation as usual. The urban environment curiously hosted some local wildlife as well...

Production Spring

It's busy livin' here at the Ruined Films HQ this spring, as we're working on several personal and external projects simultaneously. In addition to working with commercial post production, visual effects and storyboard commissions we're preparing three original productions for the upcoming principal photography. Our aim is to take old visions further and renew our Rode Reel participation from last year - with a fresh concept of course!

We'd love to show you more of the projects, but we still have to wait for a green light from our customers - and some actual material from our own productions! Until then, thanks for following us here and in our social media channels.

Pick of Nine is a monthly (or so...) gallery of our crew's photography 
flavored with a personally meaningful perspective. 

Yhteisellä matkalla

Ruined Films produced a commercial for VR in co-operation with Intohimotoimisto Cassius - the name of the game was to reach into Finnish sports history in celebration of the Lahti 2017 Nordic Ski World Championships. We got to work with Finnish skier legends as they narrated announcements for VR's train loudspeakers. The customer's description of the project:
Hiihtäjälegendat Juha Mieto ja Marja-Liisa Kirvesniemi astuivat mukavuusalueensa ulkopuolelle ja äänittivät studiossa hauskoja Lahti2017 -junakuulutuksia. Matkustajat saavat nauttia kuulutuksista kisojen ajan tietyissä Lahdessa pysähtyvissä junissa. Katso making of tunnelmia studiolta!
