Editing and post-production of the video for OHTO, a permanent exhibition at the Suomen Metsästysmuseo, Finland.
In 2019, the Suomen Metsästysmuseo commissioned a project to explore the importance of the bear in Finnish mythology. OHTO is a multimedia installation that delves into this ancient legend, engaging visitors in a world where human actions are guided by deep respect towards nature and its spiritual influence.
Super Eclectic was assigned to edit and design the post-production for the video that narrates the mythos of the bear in Finnish culture. This work is part of a larger installation, developed by visual artist Kalle Ahonnen.
Our approach was to articulate a storyline based on provided film footage –with actors recreating certain chapters of the story– in combination with animations and additional imagery.
The main challenge we faced was to tell this story in a symbolic, yet edifying way, that could effectively illustrate the beauty and complexity of its message.
The material was put together following a soundtrack whose compelling music and narration meticulously describe this folktale.
The editing, special effects, and post-production designed by Super Eclectic intertwine different episodes and merge surprising images that submerge the viewer into a fantastic, mysterious, and timeless atmosphere.
The final 30 min-long video was rendered in a vertical position in order to meet the specifications of the multimedia installation.
