About Veli-Heikki

How many stories I have written? I do not feel this to be the right question for me. My life itself is that one story and path which has taken me to this exciting moment, where I am now building the needed European transatlantic cooperation team to get my TV drama series “KALEVALA – The Return of The Golden Age” financed, produced, and distributed globally.

We offer the audience an exciting combination of historical, adventure and fantasy, exploring the most important issue of our time: man’s relation with Nature. 1st season 12 x 50 minutes. Production language is English.

Shortly for you, who are curious about my background: My childhood I was grown up in close connection with Nature. As young adult, I was searching the meaning of life through meditation and yoga. Photography studies came along and the interest in film making awakened beside my work as a photographer and journalist.

My special interest in mythologies has taken me to meet many world renown wisdom carriers from different traditions. Along with this I had a long and deep dive into my Finnish ancestors’ millennia old oral tradition known as the "Kalevala heritage". I succeeded to restore their unique story-universe and the wisdom of Nature, which I am now prepared to bring to the world in the form of the TV Drama Series.
