Misko Iho’s unique eye for beautiful imagery is now available for work in Canada with Brink.
Misko works with a simplistic approach, asking “Can you tell this story with one shot” before beginning the visualization process. Each and every shot is given the time and preparation it deserves to properly encapsulate the story. His passion for visuals is evident in all of his work, notably in “Smile ‘What’s the use of crying,’” which won him a jury award at the 2012 FilmOneFest.
Misko’s passion for pictures can be translated into commercials and music videos alike. Misko has been awarded a 2012 Grammy Award in Finland for his work on Chisu’s music video for ‘Sabotage.’ He also won Best Visual Effects at the 2013 Finnish Commercial Film Awards for his ‘Abandoned’ commercial for HD+. ‘Abandoned’ was also a finalist at Die Klappe 2013 in Germany, among other awards and nominations around Europe and the U.K.
