ABOUT SANNA

Sanna Larmola was born in 1975 in Oulu, northern Finland. She got interested in photography at the age of 12 and enrolled into an after school photography class.

"In my work I always aim for a good combination of perfection, creativity and originality and getting things done in

a fast and efficient way. I work under pressure in tight schedules and budgets with great results."

EARLY DAYS

After high school Sanna studied photography and film in several courses in different institutes and made lots of no-budget short films. Every time she moved city she'd find the local cultural centre and its video editing suite and photography dark room to keep developing her visions. She worked as a production assistant in TV and as a (trainee) photographer in a newspaper and went through countless odd jobs in customer service, sales, maintenance and logistics.

 

POST GRADUATION

Some time later Sanna graduated as Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) and Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and worked as an Administrator and Web Designer in international companies.

 

In 2008 she decided to concentrate in creative work by being a full time filmmaker and photographer. She moved to North West UK to upgrade her knowledge on film theory and to shake hands with the digital age in filmmaking. As a result she graduated as Master of Arts (M.A.) in film production and co-founded a small production company Into Production LLP. During her seven years in the UK she made her living by doing documentary films (f.e.x. to NHS), promotional films and photography for organizations, music videos for local Mancunian bands in addition to independent fiction films, obviously.

 

In 2014 she relocated herself in Tallinn, Estonia where she continues her creative work. She co-runs a production company Tuotantoyhtiö Käenpesä (FIN) and Manitou OÜ (EE) together with her husband & partner in arts

Kivi Larmola.
