5 Questions With… Jani Saastamoinen
5 Questions with Jani Saastamoinen
1. Where were you/what did you do before working at Seriously?
For all my life I’ve been working with music and sound production, as well as running my own production company. I also have a few bands and an international D&B DJ career on the side.
2. What is your current role at Seriously?
I am the audio designer at Seriously, which means I do everything involving sound for in-game and in-video production. I also voice-act most of the characters in the game.
3. What’s your favorite part about your job?
The best part is having all of the creative freedom. Every day is different. I especially enjoy when I get to do voices for the characters. It feels great to throw myself into the moment. Also, working with such talented people is beyond amazing.
4. Who is your favorite Fiend or Slug and why?
Hmm. If I have to choose one it’s definitely Temper. He has such a great onward attitude, even though he is a bit reckless at times. I always lose my voice when (voice acting) his – haha.
5. When you are not working at Seriously or playing Best Fiends, what do you enjoy doing?
I enjoy spending time with my family and watching a good movie every now and then. And of course performing or playing with either of my bands is great fun too.
