RATTLING STICK WELCOME MISKO IHO.
10 December 2019

Finland's Misko Iho is pleased to join his compatriot Pete Riski at Rattling Stick.

Helsinki-born Iho cites Riski as a major influence on his work, though he's also keen to "surround myself with peers who I can learn from".

"I'm excited to join the talented filmmakers on the Rattling Stick roster," says Iso. "I believe I can keep pushing the limits of my creativity and work on the craft I love with people who share the same passion for cinema."


This enthusiasm has led to a showreel brimming with giant robots, prison escapes, and sex-starved postmen, with Iho's VFX background ensuring even the most ambitious briefs are within his grasp.


Not only does Misko have a solid reel, but he’s such a nice guy and I’m blown away by his passion and professionalism.

 ”

For example, Iho's 2016 commercial for home security brand Daloc is a winning blend of CG and a child's imagination. Once the pay-off arrives, it's clear how well the Finnish director has managed the idea from the start.


Such work leads Rattling Stick President Johnnie Frankel to say: "Not only does Misko have a solid reel, but he's such a nice guy and I'm blown away by his passion and professionalism. We're very much looking forward to working with him on some exciting projects in 2020."

You can view more of Misko Iho's solid reel at his Rattling Stick page. Then it's a case of ringing Josie Juneau (josie@rattlingstick.com) on 020 7851 2000.
