I got a task from Maija to film cherry blossom. I wanted to practice using manual focus and thought that it would suit well this task. In the park I couldn’t find that option in my camera. I failed the task I had set to my self. Cherry blossom time was coming to it’s end soon so I shoot something anyway and cut a version for Maija. After that I realized that the most interesting clip for me was the one that I had wanted to avoid, the one where focus is changing from background to foreground. I find dance there. We named that clip “mishap porridge” after a dish that Maija once made to her children by mistake. She was making mehukeitto which is finnish dessert, a thin fruit soup, but by mistake she added semolina instead of sugar. Dessert became a porridge, a good one, children's favourite.
