Editor & Director

Jesse Jokela is the editor behind the award-winning Finnish comedy series Siskonpeti (Pyjama Party) and many Arman Alizad tv documentaries, that explore human struggles from violence of street gangs in Manila to deforestation of tribal areas in Cameroon. Both series won the Finnish Venla award twice, while Siskonpeti also earned a Rose D’or nomination.

In 2015, Jesse edited the most watched YouTube video in Finland (“Finnish Booze Day”, which went viral globally and won the annual award for promoting temperance), and directed and edited the second most watched (“Maalaisromantiikkaa”). For the comedy trio behind one of the most popular Finnish YouTube channels, Justimus, he has directed and edited a tv movie, a tv sketch series, and a number of music videos and short films. He has edited all his work on FCPX since 2012.
