TYYTYVÄINEN, almost comical in its grim and gloomy atmosphere, is a cinematic piece accompanying the similarly named song by GLENY, our own artist project.

Like a true passion project, the plan was extremely ambitious, very probable to fail and simply too tempting to pass on.
Peaky Blinders inspired clothing, a large bonfire in the middle of a gravel field and an armchair on top of a moving trailer were just few of the things we set out to achieve with a virtually non-existent budget.
Held in the beautiful island of Hailuoto, the event stands out from the crowded Finnish festival space by, for example, focusing both on the acts as well as everything around them. This includes jacuzzis, saunas, a beach and, of course, the festival's own camping grounds, where the party goes on long into the next morning.
Our aim was to convey to the viewer the authentic atmosphere of Bättre Folk. Therefore, we focused primarily on the setting and the festivalgoers, as they form the spirit of Bättre Folk.
After finding the appropiate clothing and accessories from several-second hand stores and Tori.fi purchases, we set out to find a straight enough road for filming the very absolutely legal trailer shot.
Every part of the production included cutting corners and finding just any way to get the shot we visioned, which forced us to get real creative at times.
While people passing by did give us a prolonged glance (for some reason) and Aarni might have suffered from slight hypothermia after this scene, the colours look cool.
We were dead-set on getting the most idyllic, beautiful golden hour lighting for the trailer-shots. In Finland, this meant having around 1 hour to get the footage.
Without trying to understand where the idea for a bonfire in the front of a mountain of gravel came from, we are over-the-moon happy with the result.
