  5. 1 review review 1
    caused a bit of a stir for some critics, who didn’t like to hear a
    foreign language on an English stage, so it connected with our
    themes of live music and xenophobia in a light way. These are just
    fun hidden links - there’s even a superficial Freudian id-ego-
    superego progression between the characters linked to the fear of
    the unknown in society, which is resolved positively!
    PM: How was it received?
    DT: By all accounts, the campaign and spots went very well and
    attracted a lot of audience for the season. ‘Opera’ ran all over
    Brisbane during the Anywhere Festival, from television, the festival
    site and social media to public places - it was even on the ferry in
    brisbane!
    added grain to match the feel of the actor’s footage, warped the
    birds from two angles and added a fake digital rack focus.
    The spot was shot on a Canon DSLR and primes back in the day so I
    had to do a test for how its monochrome filters looked like with the
    colours in the church. Also, I hadn’t done anything in slow motion,
    so I wanted to test that for the pacing of the edit.
    Like everything else, the sound and music were hand-crafted. Foley
    was done at an empty car park and by the pier in Porvoo and the
    Handel piece was recorded simply in Garageband, trying to get it
    right, but also to sound ‘a bit off.’ I like little human touches and
    imperfections like that. The music is from a Handel opera, Rinaldo,
    which though popular when it premiered
    DT: The shoot, including all visual effects, was all planned out,
    scheduled and storyboarded. The main visual effects involved using
    stock or shot footage of doves, which were to burst out of the
    businessman’s chest as a visual metaphor of his joy. Doves - yes I
    know - they’re a staple of such scenes, but I hadn’t seen them done
    quite this explosively. The burst is quite sudden, almost like the
    Alien - or Mars Attacks! (laughs)
    PM: Was it a lot of work?
    DT: Not too much - mainly, it was about achieving the right pacing
    and feel to match the camera footage. So, like a magic trick, I did it
    in three quick cuts leading to the wide at the end. I composited in
    the colour bird footage, made it monochrome,
    PM: How was the shoot and working with the actors?
    DT: Producing this spot was pretty seamless. After scouting and
    tests, we managed to get St. John’s Church in Helsinki for free for
    the day and the authorities were very supportive, based on my
    description and storyboards.
    Then, happily, I got to cast the very talented Manuela Bosco and
    Bach Co Tran. They were great - really supportive as I set up each
    shot. Co himself trained as a director and was able to man the
    camera for a shot I was in (another actor had to cancel two days
    earlier so I stepped in). Manuela, an Olympic athlete who trained as
    an actor in Italy, was very gracious as I ran through the invisible
    VFX and sounds she needed to react to.
    PM: Was this sparked by anything specific?
    DT: No, but I think it’s often good to subvert our dramatic
    expectations and provide empathy as a behavioural ‘out’ for
    characters. I conceived of this character, possibly a foreigner, in a
    church or shopping centre who looks or acts suspiciously to us and
    our female protagonist.
    Instead of a terrorist or something, he turns out to be a shy
    businessman at a turning point in his sad professional life and it’s
    his suppressed joy of operatic song which provides the emotional
    release needed to make changes in his life. Who says art can’t heal -
    it’s a kind of one-man private flash mob!
    Portfolio Magazine: perhaps you could introduce yourself and
    take us through your process for this spot?
    DT: Sure thing. I’m Dmitry Tolonen, a writer-director - although I
    work on whatever I need to get a job done. My friend Paul Osuch,
    with whom I’d already worked in London, had created this fantastic
    new theatre festival concept in Brisbane and I planned to make a set
    of commercials for it.
    The original idea was to combine the then popular ‘flash mob’
    performances with an introvert character’s private passion for
    singing. Also, back then, we were seeing some xenophobic trends
    emerging around the world, so I wanted to add a subliminal theme
    of not being so afraid of strangers in public places.
    Writer-director Dmitry Tolonen recalls the process for ‘His Favourite Opera,’ a one man crew
    commercial produced for the Brisbane-based Anywhere Festival.
    Anatomy of a Spot “The original idea was to combine the
    then popular ‘flash mob’ performances
    with an introvert character’s private
    passion for singing.”

  8. A new startup contacted us about creating a logo for their entry into multiple markets...
    here's a brief look into our process and the options with which the client can proceed!
    Client: Foreign Element, Helsinki
    Brief: create initial logo explorations for possible branding assignment together with
    company, who want their image to reflect both their range of industries as well as their
    values in a professional, cohesive but tongue-in-cheek way
    ● Pollination as symbol of imagination and creativity, perhaps using a
    chemical/elemental metaphor, periodic table and discovering new elements
    ● Ironic use of the word 'foreign' to defuse negative connotations
    ● Graphically showing 'minority' as part of a whole, like a pie chart
    ● Opening up logo and branding to embrace multiple industries - small
    consultancy working in media, writing, translation, tech, community and cross-
    disciplinary projects

  9. THE WAVES
    VIRGINIA WOOLF
    THE WAVES
    VIRGINIA WOOLF
    The Waves, more than any of
    Virginia Woolf's other novels,
    conveys the complexities of
    human experience.
    Tracing the lives of a group
    friends, The Waves follows
    their development from
    childhood to youth and
    middle age.
    'A book of great beauty and
    prose poem of genius'
    Stephen Spender
    Edited with an introduction and notes by Kate Flint
    (text from Penguin)
    'Woolf's novels are full
    of sensuous touches...
    and the sounds of her
    words can be velvet on
    the page'
