Honorable Mention

We received Honorable Mention from Athens International Monthly Art Film Festival.

An HONORABLE MENTION (aka SPECIAL MENTION) does not apply to a certain category but celebrates your work as whole. 

This is our second biggest distinction and it is because you were very close on winning.

Police Crimes

Police Crimes documentary coming soon!

Ex-police officer, Joakim Lindholm, exposes crimes committed by members of the Finnish Police Force. No policeman or policewoman has ever revealed these stories to the public before, due to fear of having their employment terminated or other problems. However, Joakim puts himself into the game and he has nothing to loose!

200.000 individual visitors have visited his blog pages “Poliisien Rikokset” (“Crimes by Police”) over 1.000.000 times. Huge numbers for a blog written in Finnish, considering the number of Finnish speaking people worldwide is only approximately 5.000.000. You can find his blog here: https://poliisirikokset.wordpress.com/ (in Finnish only)

Dark Planet Films has mustered up the courage to put Joakim’s story on film and Director Janne, being a brutal storyteller who never whitewashes horrible, ugly, heavy stories, now brings the brutality of this story right in your face!

Joakim’s interview will be spoken in Finnish (with English subtitles), but all roles will be played in English.

The story is a true story and all scenes will involve cases now under investigation -naturally by police themselves – with evidence. There will be no rumors told. The documentary will include extremely harsh footage, and therefore not advisable to be viewed by sensitive people.

Hello storywriter!

Hello storywriter!

Do you have a script on your desk waiting for someone to make a film out of? This might be your chance. We want to film 2 feature films in the near future, one written by our team and another written by somebody else. However, we cannot promise money until the film sells well, as we are very low budget production company. If your story has some dark atmosphere in a genre like horror, thriller, somehow sick, psychological, sci-fi, dystopia, etc, it would suit our production. Even comedy will work, as long as it is black 🙂 We definitely don’t make cute romantic love stories (unless most of the characters die, or turn into zombies or something).

Capacity film

If you are interested, DM us your synopsis (not the whole script yet as we are lazy readers, or just too busy). Tell us, too, if your story has to take place in a certain location or if it can take place anywhere. We are located in Finland, but we have some connections to various other locations where we can travel to make a film.

And, as we are low budget team, don’t send us a story if it requires an army of 1,000 men with expensive clothing, weapons, helicopters, ferries, tanks etc. We would be glad to make a massive film, but it would just not be possible to make it look good with our minimal budget. However, we are able to do a lot of tricks with a computer, we can film in a green screen studio, and rent a cottage in some scary forest, etc.
