Finland’s national public broadcasting company, Yle, has been one of Karu Film’s longest-lasting clients and partners. The collaboration begun with program openings and graphics at Yle’s design department in Tampere. This was even before Karu was founded. Since then, the collaboration has increased leaps and bounds and, today, Karu crew members are a common sight in the credits. Our tasks include, among others, shooting and editing documentary films, compiling current affair programs and editing trailers.
However, one of our major responsibilities has been the visual design for TV shows. We have been in charge of the visuals and animations of Nenäpäivä (Red Nose Day), Perjantai and Meidän Luokka programs. In addition to program openings, our bread and butter have also been the design of graphics for props department and visual effects work.
