Fine Arts students on Seili

"The 6th Baltic Sea Film Festival" took place on island of Seili, in Turku archipelago, on 28th of August.

Over the past six years the group of second year students at Tamk Programme of Fine Arts has visited Seili yearly. This year is  the 50th Jubileum year of the Archipelago Research Institute which is run by University of Turku. 

17 students and four teachers spent an enthusiastic week on the sunny and not so sunny, sometimes even rainy island, learning about the video technique and even from the biology of the Baltic sea.

Each of the students worked both in groups and filmed video material on location and created video art which was premiered in an evening gala. Due to the jubileum year, the selected works of the previous year’s were handed over to the Head of the Institute, Professor Ilppo Vuorinen.
In the evening gala, students introducing their works.

The first-year students for arts, interactive media and music production have now arrived at Finlayson - and of course, the same goes for the (Finnish speaking) film & television students!

Oh and by the way, if any of you first-year students read this, I've got a tip of how you can get (almost) free movie tickets! How? Just write a story and take a few pics and send them to this blog space, or to me ( Of course, the story should have something to do with your studies... After the blog post has been published, you can get your movie tickets from the office.

It's almost the middle of August. On Tuesday the 12th, all the brand-new first year media and arts students will arrive at our Finlayson campus, where we're still for a few short months. Next year at this time of the year, we will be gathering at the Mediapolis campus in Tohloppi. Things will change a lot in the next six months, for the better, one hopes.
Here is some official information about the orientation that can be found from the TAMK webpages, which are not very intuitively built, which is the reason that the info is here too:
Orientation & checking of original documents

The Media and Arts Orientation Days will take place from Tuesday to Friday 12.-15. August 2014 on Finlayson Campus (address: Finlaysoninkatu 7, 33210 Tampere)
