Jari Vaara

 

Comic artist and animator, Jari has self-published three issues of the magazine Neutron-i kasvattamo and wrote various stories for the Glömp anthology. When it comes to animation, he is inspired by 60-70s East European short films and tv series, as well as movies that use visual techniques and ideas that can only work within the animated medium. His first short, named Birthday, is a bleak twist on children’s birthday parties, but luckily Jari received some pretty cool gifts as a kid, of which the best were probably Commodore 64 games. He feels that, even if the Finnish comic scene has grown steadily, it is still missing more stories that have  meaningful and serious themes and are well executed storywise.
