Finnish Lapland enchants on ABC’s Hit Romance Reality Series The Bachelor
The northernmost episode ever shot for the reality show newest Bachelor was filmed in the winter wonderland of Finnish Lapland
The people, nature, and the atmosphere
”The people, nature, and the atmosphere.” film director Jussi Hiltunen answers when asked to list three reasons why a production should film in Lapland Finland. Hiltunen is a local, he spent his childhood in Lapland, and now lives and works in his home region. ”Lappish people are really nice, friendly and hospitable”, he says.
The midnight sun is something extraordinary, and Hiltunen thinks that the phenomenon has something to offer for productions.
”When it comes to filmmaking there is something mystical about it. You can make day scenes in the middle of the night but the light is still different compared to daytime, it’s also one thing which is unique here.” Hiltunen remarks.
His debut feature, Law of the Land will premiere in spring 2017.
