Original score from the 2021 family adventure feature film directed by Taavi Vartia, starring Olavi Kiiski, Oskari Mustikkaniemi and
Mimosa Willamo, produced by Taavi Vartia Tuotanno and released by Nelonen Media (Finland).
THE STORY: Pertsa and Kilu’s imaginative plans become all too real when they find themselves on the trail of a bank robber and a missing yacht.
THE SCORE: “It’s hard to explain just how big Pertsa and Kilu are in Finland and how much of a privilege it was to join this long tradition that has been going on since the 1950s. Since the story here is foremost about friendship, and that theme is central in the score as well. The main theme is very much about the adventure, but borrows a little from rock ‘n roll and jazz to portray the inventive non-conformist attitude of the two friends, who among other things end building their own airplane and submarine out of scrap metal!” – Panu Aaltio
THE COMPOSER: Finders of the Lost Yacht marks the eighth MovieScore Media release with Panu Aaltio for whom the label released the acclaimed Tale of a Forest (2012) and Tale of Lake (2016), both of which won the Best Original Score for a Documentary award of the IFMCA. The string of collaborations include The Home of Dark Butterflies (2009), Finland’s official submission for the 2009 Academy Awards and the epic Dawn of the Dragonslayer (2009), the Greece-set adventure score The Island of Secrets (2015) or more recently Super Furball (2018) and 95 (2018). Training as a cellist since the age of six, Aaltio also studied music technology and classical composition at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki and film music at the USC where he received the Harry Warren scholarship for Excellence in Film Scoring.
