Our story

Our Northern Finnish production company has its roots in our genuine love for movies.

Mutant Koala Pictures was founded back in 2011 as a group of young aspiring movie makers got to work on their “Dr. Professor’s Thesis of Evil” short film. This original and highly unusual movie project was a catalyst for many of today’s industry professionals, but it still acts as a reminder of the way we do things at Mutant Koala: with a sense of humour, high technical skill and focus on stories with international potential.

In 2018 we released our first feature film “Heavy Trip”, that premiered at the prestigious SXSW festival to a great reception. This movie is the perfect example of what we at Mutant Koala want to create and support. Those things being true ambition and eccentric genre movie productions all the way from initial scripting to post-production and VFX work. Humanity, professionalism and warmth are always at the very core of all our productions. We want to be a known as a team that’s honestly fun to work with.

Curiosity and ambition have brought us this far, and those factors will without a doubt take us even further beyond the foreseeable horizon — no matter if we’re dealing with a movie, series, music video or something that hasn’t even been invented yet.

So, join us! It’s time to make something unforgettable.

Production services

We provide professional production services in the area of Northern Finland for feature films, series and commercial productions. When you choose us as your companion, we will manage your productions all the way from the equipment to casting. Leave the location arrangements requiring local knowledge to us and you can concentrate on the very essence of your production.

Filming and production arrangements

We have extensive knowledge of Northern and Eastern Finland. The contacts we have with local landowners and guides are an excellent asset when seeking a suitable location regardless of what you are looking for — pure and simple Scandinavian maritime scenery, a winter wonderland, or tranquil village scenery in the enchanting light of the midnight sun. We can take care of the equipment, shooting permits, local camera crew, catering and even accommodation in the middle of an uninhabited forest if you wish, provided it is the best option for the production as a whole.
