Drama, Scripted TV 2012 - MTV3

An urban police series set in a police district, dealing with the dilemmas of modern police life.

Roba is a fictive narrative that follows the work of the police in the Helsinki southern precinct. Moments in which an officer is a hero, but quickly becomes the goat. Situations in which an officer’s decision-making fails him like it would anyone else.

As the series begins, a new Captain joins the precinct. Hessu, a by-the-book individual is extremely eager to improve the everyday running of the precinct, much to the frustration of Arto, a senior constable who is used to taking shortcuts. This immediately puts Arto on a collision course with his pedantic new boss. Senior constable Maikki is also forced to make adjustments as she gets a new partner – the brash and macho Jani. When Maikki becomes the victim of an embarrassing peeping Tom incident, she must determine the best way to handle the situation, quickly realising that for a female police officer, criminals are not the only problems to be dealt with.

Roba portrays police officers as humans and individuals who have a hard time avoiding publicity. Questions about what people think of the police has become an everyday thing. It affects police officers in different ways. One tries to have an effect on the image formed by the media, another uses harsher tactics when there are no witnesses.

Checking out my own work from the telly. I did camera control for #hyvätjahuonotuutiset and was a bit worried about one camera which I was unable to match perfectly probably because of prompter glass.
