Me and the movies

Born 1948 to a family of a film actress and a director.
My very first connection to the film industry was at a rather young age.
If I remember correctly, the film was called:
"Born a healthy baby girl." and I had the leading role.

To be honest, I didn't remember it right. It was my brother.
It would have meade a great story though.

In the fifties I helped my father in sound recording and in the sixties I started to get paid.

Since then I have done sound to 29 feature films - and edited 13, quite a few documentaries and numerous tv-programs.
I have also written articles in magazines, a few manuscripts and stage-plays, composed music for tv-series and produced tv-programs.
Every now and then I also have been teaching and consulting in different universities, theatre and film-schools.

Since I was´t around when they shot these two films, I did´t get any parts eather :-(

The following pictures are from the album of a special guest star that was seldom mentioned in credits as an actor.
(I should tell you though that I have had a role in nearly all the films with a line (or two), and once singing :-)

I posed as myself with my grandchildren. In the background a picture of Nikla Tolonen,
father of my son-in-law, who made sound for the first Uuno Turhapuro film.
