KAJAWOOD STUDIOS… a concept State-of-the-art film studio to open early 2023 in Sotkamo, Kainuu region, Finland

 A BUBBLE STUDIO DESTINATION

 

KAJAWOOD STUDIOS comes as the result of a Joint task between Miika J. Norvanto and Timo Puustinen. Together they built a unique studio ecosystem, located an hour and a half by plane from Helsinki set to welcome productions from all over the world. Currently under construction, the studio is a combination of the latest technology including a led screen and technical capabilities, designed facilities, concept-to-production-to-distribution ‘know-how’, top level security, efficient operations, four seasons mind blowing landscapes, sharp financial expertise and a 25% tax rebate.

KAJAWOOD STUDIOS is a bubble compound dedicated to the art of filmmaking where every level of production is optimized. A ‘one-stop-solution’ where staff and film crews, actors, facilities and studio lots are all in the same place.

The Happiest country in the world five years a row.

Working and visiting KAJAWOOD STUDIOS is a five-star experience from start to finish.

KAJAWOOD STUDIOS is currently developing its own ’in house’ projects including genre and indie feature films, international co-productions, action documentary miniseries, MMA miniseries and a biopic international co-production. While working on developing its own projects KAJAWOOD STUDIOS will also welcome international productions and offer all pre-to-post-production related services.

KARL is a biopic about the life of no ordinary man… A man who once revolutionized the world of ‘Haute Couture’ and ‘Pret-a-Porter’ to better reinvent it as the fashion industry we know today… A man whose charisma and audacity influenced generations of fashionistas worldwide… A man whose legacy is ‘the’ reference for generations to come.

Karl Lagerfeld was a workaholic, self-taught, visionary, ruthless, global, multidisciplinary, non-exclusive, full of energy, egocentric, culture addict, sarcastic, generous, hyper media, mysterious, collector, artist, fashion designer… A true kaleidoscope of personalities in one man… A genius… A ‘Kaiser’.

KARL is a motion picture based on an Original Screenplay by Laurent Germain Maury & Jean-Marc Michelangeli, inspired by Marie Ottavi’s book Karl. According to the author: <<“Karl” is a biography which aims to disentangles the truth from the false in the life of Karl Lagerfeld>>. During his lifetime, Karl had always declined the idea of a collaboration to publish his memoirs, what made him open up to Marie will remain a mystery. One of many about Karl as the Kaiser left the earth with many unanswered questions.

KAJAWOOD STUDIOS will be the home of the ‘KARL’ project for all pre/post production as well as indoor sets. The first international feature film of a sort to be made in the brand-new state-of-the-art studio village to open early 2023.

KAJAWOOD STUDIOS comes as the creation between Miika J. Norvanto and Timo Puustinen. Together they have built a unique studio ecosystem in the Kainuu region, located an hour and a half by plane from Helsinki, set to welcome productions from all over the world. The studio is a combination of the latest technology including LED screens and the latest technological capabilities, designing facilities, concept-to-production-to-distribution ‘know-how’, top level security, efficient operations, four seasons mind-blowing landscapes and sharp financial expertise.

KAJAWOOD STUDIOS is a support bubble compound dedicated to the art of filmmaking where every level of production is optimized… A ‘one-stop-solution’ where staff and film crews, actors, facilities and studio lots are all in the same place.

KAJAWOOD STUDIOS ‘in house’ projects currently under development include an indie feature film co production, a sci-fi miniseries, an action/documentary miniseries… And of course, ‘Karl’.

Two worlds, mountain summits and water depths, that usually never meet one another; two opposite universes, tops of the world and bottoms of the oceans, that one nature lover and freediver passionate man decides to bridge together by visiting the abysses of the mountains: high altitude lakes.

A group of people that nothing in life should have brought together except for their passion for extremes, whether it is a spectacular natural environment or a desire to reach the limits of endurance, a rediscovery of oneself or practicing a sport in ‘off-limits’ conditions.

PRESSURE SEEKERS ® are named Arnaud, Laurent, Loic, Marin and Dorian… French born… Originated or live in the south west of France… Strong addiction to nature and outdoor extreme sports… Business corporate, entertainment, military, lathe milling professional backgrounds… It is about five men… Different as different could be… A ‘brotherhood’ made of random encounters but sharing similar human values… Five men who at this point in life felt the necessity to reconnect with their true self and enjoy that moment in time with others.

Human motivations and expectations which we will discover along the way… It is also about mental and physical challenges… Resilience and acceptance… Sharing one’s strength and weaknesses… And also about understanding that circumstances do not define us but it is the actions we take that do.

The group will be joined by ‘VIP guests’ participants during each episode. Participants such as ‘celebrities’, unfamiliar with extreme expeditions who will have to demonstrate their ability to adapt physically and mentally.

Episodes are ‘unscripted’. Dialogues will be inspired by ‘live’ emotions, moments, encounters, etc, along the path. A journey where all members can genuinely act and express themselves without limitation.

Miniseries will take place in ‘off the track’ locations and will allow viewers to discover less or unknown natural wonders. Each episode will be set in a different country and annual series will be split into geographical world regions.

Season 1 is a thirty days adventure starting in the French Pyrénéesand finishing in the Spain, including stopovers in Italy, Switzerland, Slovenia, Bosnia and Croatia.

Season 2 is a 6-8 weeks journey from Poland to Iceland, including stopovers in Estonia, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark.

Another challenge is to film having zero impact on the environment, by innovating technically and visually. The miniseries will be taped according to a unique philosophy: “take nothing but memories and leave nothing but footprints”.

Season 1 will start filming mid-September 2022 and Season 2 mid-March 2023

KAJAWOOD STUDIOS will be developing and producing and post-producing the miniseries.
