About

About

Aamu Film Company is a film production company founded in 2001. We’ve produced fiction and documentary films as well as tv-series, both in short and long formats. Aamu is owned by Jussi Rantamäki, with Emilia Haukka working as his production-buddy. We work with devoted directors in long term relationships that start from making short films and develop into producing international fiction features.

We know that the content of a film defines its form and production. That’s why all our film productions are hand crafted for the content in question.

We have our office in Herttoniemi in East Helsinki. We like good food, diving, analog photography and dancing. Coffee is important to us and we secretly train in latte art at our office.
