I shot this in february of 2020 in Iceland, just before the pandemic started. We were on a job, but managed to get some time to shoot a bit for ourselves as well. We had planned 3 days of roadtripping in Iceland after the job, but we got hit by a snowstorm and got trapped in Seyðisfjörður for 3 days. When we finally got out and took a place back to Reykjavik, we only had a bit over 24 hours before we had to head home again. We got really lucky and experienced everything from heavy snowfall at Skógafoss to a beautiful sunset by the coast at Vik. It is not a lie when Icelanders say: “If you don’t like the weather in Iceland, just wait five minutes”.
The voiceover is by Andrea who is Icelandic and helped me find the poem as well. Thank you Andrea! The music is from Artlist and the film was edited and graded in DaVinci Resolve. You can follow me on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/morten.svane/
