Welcome to the writer’s room
I’m Juhana Lumme; a screenwriter, author, filmmaker, and a bit of a comic book creator – in a word, a storyteller. I was born in Lapland, the North of Finland, and even though life has taken me to warmer climates, my heart still lies in the Arctic soil.
The samurai saw the warrior’s way as a twofold path – the way of pen and sword, and they mastered both. I believe this works both ways; it’s also beneficial for a writer to master the sword, and I’m a devoted yoga and tai chi practitioner.
By education, I’m a Master of Arts from the University of Industrial Arts and Design Helsinki, where my practice film, High Hopes, was a candidate for the short film Oscar-nominations, and my graduation script, feature film Dogs Don’t Wear Pants, had its premiere at Cannes Film Festival.
I’m also an enthusiastic comic book reader, and gather the wittiest panels on an ever-expanding collection of Unforgettable Comic Book Dialogue.
