HEILD-posterA3

HEILD translates into Entirety or Totality and is a non-narrative film featuring the country of my origin. Iceland. The film focuses on all aspects of it’s unique and diverse nature, it’s entire nation and culture. The goal with this film is to present Iceland in a way it has never been presented before, using many elements of higher-end cinematography. There are places here everyone knows, but there are also thousands of well hidden places. To find these locations one has to be adventurous or a local, and to capture them right, one has to be creative and extremely patient.

The film is expected to release in early 2014.

 

FIRST TRAILER

The SFX and this sublime musical score was created by the highly talented and creative cooperators of mine at Box Of Toys Audio (BXFTYS). boxoftoysaudio.com/ & vimeo.com/bxftys

We took a predominantly orchestral approach to the music in order to encompass the grandeur and gravitas of the visuals. The various scenes convey a desolate, mysterious beauty that we tried to encapsulate in the development of the score. The addition of female vocals brings a sense of nostalgia and heritage to the piece whilst subtle ambient sound design assists with depth and movement.

 

THEATRICAL TRAILER

At last, Iceland´s first full-feature, non-narrative film. It has taken over three hard years to make. 2.5 years out shooting in Iceland, and 1.5 years of editing and post-production. This is by far the biggest project TPS has ever produced. The film has a whopping length of 70 minutes and was set out to present Iceland in a way it has never been presented before, using many elements of higher-end cinematography. I set out to finish the project in 2013 and at 45-50 minutes, but the project grew larger and after an insane amount of work, it became a full-feature.

The film features an original score from Professor Kliq (professorkliq.com) and additional music from Ólafur Arnalds (olafurarnalds.com), Friðjón Jónsson, Trabant and Mono (monoofjapan.com).

A big thank you goes to my supporters, Nyherji (nyherji.is) for the cameras, Macland (macland.is) for the Apple computer and Davíð Egilsson for added financial support.
