Metrafilms shoots on location in Finnish Lapland for Beeline’s winter campaign

Moscow-based Metrafilms headed to Finnish Lapland for a winter campaign for Russian telecommunications firm Beeline. The spot shows revellers bringing in 2013 with a mix of snowboarding and a nightclub party.

Snow scenes were filmed around a ski resort in Pyhä in the Pelkosenniemi region of Finnish Lapland, doubling for the Magadan and Krasnoyarsk parts of eastern and north-eastern Russia, respectively.

Jukka Valtanen line produced for Pure Scandinavia and explained that logistics were the biggest challenge: “We had one shooting day and because we shot a couple of scenes on top of the mountain and the rest down in a valley, the biggest part was moving the equipment and crew up and down within the schedule.”

We have put an increasing effort into promoting the region for TV commercials.
