Serot: Udu

I have a conversation with my girlfriend on Skype. She criticizes the shit out of me, because I have agreed to make this video. She says the music is easy listening house wooing the audience with a famous mainstream jazz -pianist. She tells me my mother could listen to this shit, pinky up, sipping on red wine. She reminds me I was supposed to be a rebel and that I shouldn't loose my judgement even if I'm high. She tells me she's ashamed of me.

Olavi Uusivirta: Uni

Honorable mention of the jury of Oulu Music Video Festival 2010.

The jury's opinion (sorry, impossible to translate in English):

"Näennäisen irralliset kuvat muodostavat kokonaisuuden, jonka katsoja täydentää omalla tulkinnallaan. Muuttotappioyhdyskunnan syviin vesiin sukeltava teos tekee videolla esiintyvistä ihmisistä tähtiä heidän tietämättään. Videon loputtua katsojan olo on kuin märästä sängystä heräävällä Hannu Karpolla."
