I am Tatu Pohjavirta, a Finnish filmmaker and animator. I have been working with animation since 1996 as a director, animator, producer and teacher.
My focus is in traditional methods such as stop motion and drawn animation. I am also exploring the borderlines of the discipline through code generated and gamified animation. Sometimes I find myself gravitating towards coding.
I have made multiple films together with Mark Ståhle. Our films are narrative and created with a digital cut-out technique. This is a fast and effective way to tell stories.
Some of my artworks I have done in collaboration with Eino Santanen. In ABC-Invaders I used his poems in a game akin to Space Invaders.
At the moment I am developing new stop motion film. It is a non-dialogue black comedy about a surgeon who is living in a relationship with a robot. When someone starts to kill robots, police forces are not interested in finding the killer. The Surgeon and his robotic spouse have to solve the murders.
