Samuele Tassan

Warehouse +358 9 759 47730

Since the glorious year of 2011 the Italian Stallion Samuel has been checking and taking care of the equipment. He also checks himself at the gym (mirror) and takes care of himself by swimming. He also enjoys drawing. Women are always to him, like, “Paint me like one of your French girls.”. Remember… Titanic… When Kate Winslet, anyways…

About his co-workers he has only kind words to say. According to Samuel they are super good at their work and also very helpful. Such a nice guy! Clearly not Finnish.

At work he tries to avoid boring tasks, no success there.

Janne “Häkä” Häkkinen

Booking +358 9 759 47720

Janne’s story begun in 2005, just like Batman’s. As Christian Bale of AF, he handles the lighting and grip booking. He’s also somehow mixed up in the rental bureaucracy and finding misplaced equipment.

In the summertime he fishes. At winter it’s snowboarding and baby gymnastic exercises… ha ha hah ha, what ever that means! But hey, his nickname is Häkä.

Janne’s vice; according to his spouse, he is diligent at work, but lazy when it comes to choirs at home.

Katri Saukonpää

Coordinator +358 9 759 47711

Katri joined the AF team in 2015. Her work day includes a vast variety of miscellaneous office work, basic helping around and HR stuff. Have a question? Just ask Katri.

In the picture to her right is “Manager” Anttonen, as she calls him. According to Katri he brightens everybody’s work day in the weekly Tuesday work meetings with his ridiculous jokes.

Katri’s bigges vice is sloth (one of the deadly sins, not the animal), laziness that appears when there’s a boooring job to be done. Yes, sometimes job is boring.

Petri Anttonen

Rental Manager +358 9 759 47720

In 1998, after Saving Private Ryan, Petri came to AF wrecking havoc like Godzilla… He acts as Rental Manager so basically he’s in charge of everything that has something to do with the rental stuff. It’s reported that he always has to have the… second last word.

Petri is into cycling.

His vice – too loose on giving discounts to clients. So, now you know who to call.

Bernd Woelke Details

Do you want reggae or rock?

Bernd Woelke

Service +358 9 759 47741

The year is 2005. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory premiers in theatres. Bernd a.k.a Benkku enters Angel Films. Some refer to him as the Angel Films very own McGyver. He fixes everything. E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G.

Benkku also fixed all of his vices.

Karri Takala Details

I wonder if you guys have ever used a sewing machine?

Karri Takala

Key Grip +358 9 759 4770

Karri is a Key Grip. He works as a Key Grip 15 months per year. He’s also responsible for the Technocrane products. That’s all.

I drink like 20 cups of coffee per day.

(Starting from far left)

Marko “Mace” Mantere

Key Grip +358 9 759 47730

The year was 1997, Titanic sunk for the second time and Marko came to AF. Marko a.k.a Mace, handles the Grip equipment and checks that everything is working perfectly. He also does gigs as an Key Grip. His hobbies include summer cottaging (is that a word?), boating and scuba diving. So basically when he’s at his summer house, he takes the boat out on the lake and just dives in…

Mace has too much vices to write down here. Instead he encourages you to come over and to find out yourself.

Minna Grönberg

Head of Accounting +358 9 759 4770

Minna joined AF in 2016. She has been helping around already in 2002. Thats waayy back. Remember what happened then? That’s right, My Big Fat Greek Wedding. In AF Minna handles everything that has something to do with administrative or financial stuff. According to Mace (at her left), Minna fits the AF team like an fist fits to the eye.

At her free time Minna is a scuba diving, cross fitting, soccer playing awesomeness.

Mika Vuorinen

Camera Technician +358 9 759 47790

Mika has been working as a camera assistant since 2003. Remember the best movie that came out that year? Yes, of course you do, 2Fast 2Furious. Just like Mika when he drives his mountain bike when he’s not busy watching his kids or TV.

Mika started working at Angel Films in 2016 in the camera department. His daily routines consist of checking and gathering equipment and building parts AND developing new products.

On the far left in the picture is Mace. According to Mika, Mace is the juice police of Angel Films… what ever that means. Is it a good thing, is it a bad thing? You decide.

Mika vice: not enough sleep.

Aki Karppinen and Torsti Hyvönen Details

...Clas Ohlsson glasses for two euros.

(Starting from far left)

Aki Karppinen

Gaffer +358 9 759 4770

Year 2002. This free time archer and hunter enters Angel Films. After that he mainly does lighting gigs.

He appreciates Torsti’s multi talentdness and informs us that in need of help, Torsti is The Guy.

Torsti Hyvönen

Resource Manager +358 9 759 4770

Since 1998 Torsti has played a vital part in the Angel Films Rapid Reaction Forces (AFRRF). Infamously know for their skills to solving problems fast (Flash Gordon fast), effectively handling all sorts of problems and just making sure that everything is running perfectly at Angel Films HQ. He also does some odd jobs in the role of a Key Grip.

In the picture next to Torsti is Aki. Aki has a famous wrinkle in his forehead. Observing the wrinkle you can identify weather or not Aki has problems. Wrinkle on – problem, wrinkle off – all good.

One of Torsti’s vices is that he hangs out at the movie sets on his free time. Often. Probably too often. Time for an intervention?

Erkki Pakonen Details

Big heads run in our family.

Erkki Pakonen

Camera Technician +358 9 759 47790

Erkki a.k.a Eki, used to work in Devil Rentals and became an Angel in 2012. He works in the camera test range alongside with the clients. He also packs and unpacks the equipment. Wax on, wax off. He watches movies and plays basketball. Tr8 baller.

His vice: läsöily. Don’t have a clue what that means. Sounds like something to do with fatness.

We need a Swedish touch here.

(Starting from far left)

Roope Ruuska

Booking +358 9 759 47720

In 2012 when the world was ending, he rose from the Twilight like a Dark Knight. Yeah, so Roope came to work at Angel in 2012. He handles the camera equipment bookings for movies and advertisements. He listens to music, is a big consumer of movies, he photographs, plays and watches football (a big Arsenal fan).

He says that Juha (far right) against all prejudice, has not always had a moustache. Unbelievable, right? Roope heard that Juha had it shaven once… at some point in the 70’s. Are you thinking what I am? Damn you have a dirty mind!

Apparently Roope has no vices. Of course you don’t. Nobody does.

Ville Penttilä

CEO +358 9 759 47712

As acting CEO of Angel Films, Ville says he is not familiar to the concept of an ‘ordinary’ work day – best part of the job. After an un-ordinary work day, he spends most of his free time as an active member of his kids football team, bending it like Beckman… what?

Anyways, in the picture on the right side of Ville is Juha. Now, Ville remembers Juha dating way back to the early years of his career. He describes Juha as insanely friendly person, apparently a personality trait commonly known in the circles. So, in the early 90’s Ville was working as an camera assistant at Filmfotograferna, where Juha was also working at the time. There was this one incident that included Ville, a camera lens case and lenses smashing to the floor… yeah, you probably can imagine what happened – the lid of the case wasn’t locked and all the lenses (worth over 150 000 €) one by one… Juha just cough and continued business as usual. Smooth.

Ville’s vices are that he enjoys good food and wine a bit too much. So what to expect in the future? –Obesity and alcoholism.

Juha Heiskanen

Light Warehouse Foreman +358 9 759 47730

Juha is in charge of the lighting equipment and the first person you see when you come in as a client. He is a sight for the sore eye and also super helpful. In his free time Juha keeps his physical and mental health on shape with the fine art of basic walking. Let me tell you, this man can walk. Woah, you should see him walking! It’s just like, one foot goes in front of the other and then the other foot… It’s kinda amazing.

Fact: Juha was very surprised to hear that Roope (far left) was from Turku. Although he should suspected something was off, because apparently Roope was always very quiet when he cracked an Turku joke.

Juha has A LOT of vices. So we’ll just leave it there.

Is this a shameless position?

(Starting from far left)

Aki Huttunen

Booking +358 9 759 47720

Aki comes to work, sits on his nice office chair, drinks a lot of coffee and then answers client inquiries about camera equipment. This pattern has repeated itself since 2009. His hobbies include cycling and camping.

His vices include bad jokes.

Johanna Holvikallio

Camera Technician +358 9 759 47790

Johanna started at AF as an intern in 2015 and the rest is history. Johanna takes care of returns, cleaning, checking and shelving of equipment. Aki (at her left) says that Johanna is a walking talking Wikipedia.

When she’s not working she WOULD LIKE TO do yoga, fitness and boxing but has settled for playing Playstation. Like a pro.

Opening hours:
Mon–Fri 7.30–16.30
