Aamu Film Company is a film production company founded in 2001. We’ve produced both fiction and documentary films, in short and long formats. Aamu is owned by Jussi Rantamäki, with Emilia Haukka . 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 films 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 train in latte art at the office while we ponder wether we should start doing yoga.
