Pétur K. Guðmundsson talking on TEDx Reykavík

Our very own owner/producer/director Pétur K. Guðmundsson had a lecture at TEDx conference at Harpa music and conference hall in Reykjavík, Iceland few weeks ago. It’s about his spinal cord injury and a bright future in recovery.   Pétur speaks about how we currently are handling the issue of spinal cord injury and why we are doing it wrong. He will share with us the technological advances currently being made in treatment options. He challenges our current views of this issue and argues that the wheelchair isn’t a solution. Pétur is a film-maker and director who suffered a life-changing accident climbing a rock in Austria a little over 3 years ago. The accident resulted in spinal cord injury and Pétur was told he would never walk again. However, using leg braces, he stood up from his wheelchair about 8 months after the accident and still uses them to walk. TEDxReykjavík was held for the fourth time on May 17th 2014 in Harpa conference and concert center. The audience experienced engaging and motivational talks from some of the brightest artists, thinkers and entrepreneurs in Iceland, and from further afield.

Pre-screening and plenty of stuff going on

Pre-screening and plenty of stuff going on

The premiere for Heild will be on friday and we can not wait until then. But we also have had an ‘only invites’ pre-screening in Háskólabíó last wednesday. Everyone seemed happy at the end and we have only gotten great response. In other news, we have been shooting a lot of auroras last months and we have something to show soon enough. Arnþór has been filming for couple of different projects, for example for Fjarðalax in the Westfjords and the musician Jon Hopkins. We will post the videos here when ready. Arnþór was also a director of photography for the short film ‘Tooth for a tooth’ which was selected to screen at Reykjavík...

Testing the Canon C100

This is just a small test that I made with the Canon C100. I have to say that I enjoyed many of it’s features like the waveform on the monitor and the nd-filters for example. I was a DP for a short film and we used this camera. I really liked the outcome of the images and hopefully I can show you guys some shots from it soon. But until then you only get this short clip...

The theatrical trailer is online

Finally we can showcase our theatrical trailer for HEILD. HEILD – Theatrical Trailer from Petur K. Gudmundsson on Vimeo. The film it self is ready as well and we are in talks with distribution companies for cinema release. We are hoping that we can release it in the middle of this...

HEILD Is Ready.

I have completed 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. This goal has been accomplished by shooting in known- and more remote locations around the whole island, using motion-controlled time-lapse, super slow-motion, aerial material along with many other techniques… this + a very time-consuming editorial work has taken three years, around 50.000 km and an extremely low budget of about 65.000$(estimated) due to myself doing most of the work. And now finally.. we will premiere, as of now most likely in Háskólabíó or Smárabíó, Rvk, Iceland. Right Now we are attending meetings with various cinemas, + other firms and organizations who might be interested in and benefit from this project, as it is perfect for Icelandic tourism exploitation, presenting Iceland in this non-verbal way, allowing humanity as a whole to experience and feel the power of this magnificent country. The new Theatrical Trailer along with a HEILD premiere date will be here and everywhere online, very shortly. For now I am retired. Thank you all, the journey has been great. Petur K....
Never nothing going on…

Never nothing going on…

TPS has been really busy these past few weeks. Of course the post production of HEILD, which is going good, is taking most of our time. Color grading, sound mastering and stuff like that seems to take forever and Mike is working very hard on finishing the score. The theatrical trailer should be ready in next week. As well as the post-production of HEILD Arnþór has been busy filming and editing all sort of stuff. One project is filming a seminars for athletic coaches. You can get more info about this seminar on styrktarthjalfun.is. Below is an ad for that seminar. Another project Arnþór is been busy working on is for the ad agency Fíton for 10-11 and Coke Zero. A playstation VITA give-away in the 10-11 stores. We are also working on some other project that we can’t enclosure right now and as always out shooting stock...
