Pulkka Shed Ltd was founded in 2004 as a partnership between Minttu Maari Mäntynen and Scott Ward. After Scott passed away in 2013, Minttu continued working both as a cinematographer and creating films from beginning to end for existing and new clients.
Essentially Pulkka Shed is a one woman workforce with a strong network of freelancers to recommend and hire in depending on the project needs. The creative craft of filmmaking is still at the core of the company: directing, cinematography services, editing and any project management, location hunting and design pieces that are needed to make a project happen.
We are interested in making good quality projects where people are treated fairly and kindly on both sides of the camera.
For drama scripts, fundraising and co-production – there are brilliant producers out there that we are happy to recommend, but it is unlikely your project is for us.
