More Info Works / Hymn Videos


Three hymn music videos that strive for finding the glow of old hymns in the modern life. An aged rock star Zape Leppänen sings old Finnish hymns with his cracked voice full of big emotions. The music creates a melancholic but comforting feeling that is paralleled to slow motioned surveillance camera footage. In the second video we see a dance performance.
