YL - Pioneers

YL - Pioneers Credits

This short film opens the YL male choir’s ”Journey” concerts and doubles as their introduction film in their online communication.

YL has a long history of work with many legendary Finnish composers – most notably Jean Sibelius – but today they’re also interpreters of more contemporary choir music. The challenge we faced was capturing this scale and history in a 2 minute short. Our solution was to turn it into a poetic piece that pays tribute to classic Finnish poster design and the golden age of Finnish art.
