Petri's debut film is a very personal documentary recounting Luukkainen's one-year self–experiment of deprivation and discovery where he took every single possession he had, put them all in storage and bought nothing more. He allowed himself to take back only one item per day. Film was theatrically distributed around the world, and it served the basis for the reality show (Life Stripped Bare, Channel 4) and is being transformed to a fictional remake (Pantaleon, Germany) atm.
From Virtual to reality, Just Boys is a six-part series about a group of sixteen and seventeen-year-old boys who found each other in the online gaming world but are yet to find their true selves. We are with them as they step outside their childhood homes to meet each other for the first time, interailing through Europe. Afflicted by mental health issues, loneliness, sexual identity and adolescence, the five British teenagers from different parts of the country and very different walks of life share just one thing; they all feel like outsiders.
A reactive short form documentary. In 2013 Petri read an article about climate change in the biggest newspaper in Finland and got angry on the angle of the article. The result: a short doc The Climate Game that was produced and released in 7 days. The release was using Youtube as a major media and the production company Unikino made a impact campaign to gain publicity for the topic. Short listed in global Action4Climate short film competition and featured in the WorldBank as Finlands presentation.
A documentary on youtuber made by a documentary filmmaker. Needless to say, the meta is that: When you watch this documentary, we are making money out of it.
