Leena Jääskeläinen

Leena Jääskeläinen is a Helsinki-based animation film maker and a media artist with a passion for different forms of story-telling. In her opinion, virtual reality gives great freedom, as the story is not tied to a beginning, a middle part or an ending. Things can just exist and happen in a place! However, Jääskeläinen has by no means abandoned the more traditional ways of story-telling. She is working on the development of her first feature animation film called Bear Park, together with Kaisa Penttilä. They are also already writing together their second feature film, with kind support from the Finnish Film Foundation.
