Legend: A Journey Through Iceland

Description

A joint collaboration with rock / ambient / experimental band MONO (www.monoishere.com), Legend takes you on an epic 12 minute visual and aural journey through Iceland's breathtaking landscapes during the time of the midnight sun. The film travels across Iceland, from the floating blue icebergs of Jokulsarlon's glacial lagoon to the steaming geothermic vents of Myvatn, the colorful mountains of Landmannalaugar to the breathtaking sunsets on Snaefellnes Peninsula, and the barren volcanic landscapes of Askja to the vast fields of lupin near Husavik. Legend was shot over a 2 week period in June 2012 when the sun barely sets below the horizon and you never see darkness. It was filmed completely in 5K resolution using Canon full frame DSLRs on motion timelapse equipment from Kessler Crane. Mono has been wonderful to work with. Their unique sound is a great pairing for the visuals of this project. The track, titled Legend, is from their upcoming album "For my parents". It has a cinematic and epic quality with an edge. This helps describe Iceland - a breathtakingly beautiful yet unforgivingly dangerous place. We would like to thank the following supporters for making this film possible: Kessler Crane: www.KesslerCrane.com Glacier Rental Car: www.glaciercarrental.is Special thanks to Egill Agustsson and Adalsteinn Petur Karlsson of Husavik, Iceland for their help with my car problems on Iceland National Day. It's the country's biggest holiday and they helped me get back on the road so I could continue filming. Last but not least, a big thank you to fellow filmmaker Joe Capra (www.scientifantastic.com) for his guidance and inspiration. His tips and advice were invaluable in helping me prepare for this trip.
