This is EyeCandy. It’s a home for big industry names, before they’ve become big industry names. These directors make music videos, commercials, short films, social content and everything in between.

We’re thrilled to welcome the whimsical voice of Vesa Manninen to MindsEye’s directing roster.

Raised in a small town in the North of Finland, Vesa’s love for the industry was ignited by early exposure to the town’s independent movie theatre, a stone’s throw away from his home. His work is cinematic, characterful and charming, an intelligent marriage of magical realism and modern technology, creating commercials that feel built for the big screen.

S-Market — The Snowman

Paper & Packaging — Box’s Journey

Vesa caught the industry’s attention with music videos and short films, but has since gone global with his work. Vesa has shot all over the world, for an abundance of agencies and brands, including Ikea, McDonald’s and Nintendo.
